Generosity has taken hold in a whole new way among us since we kicked off our ALL IN giving last December! It is evident that God has been working in the hearts of His people. We have stepped up to the challenge of ALL IN: to give at a level that meets current ministry needs and, at the same time, provides the means to accelerate debt reduction and expand ministry.
When we started ALL IN, we aimed high—setting a goal that would cut our debt in half over two years, while maintaining support for our ministries. As a result of our generosity and managing of expenses, we retired an additional $200,000 of debt during July, which means that our ALL IN giving has, so far, enabled us to retire an additional $1,700,000 of debt in eight months! This saves us $85,000 of interest expense annually.
Our ALL IN journey is off to a wonderful beginning. Join us in praising God for what He’s doing in and through us as we are growing in our generosity and supporting His work here and all over the world.
More and more individuals and families are choosing to give electronically. This free and convenient service simplifies the giving process, and allows you to give 24/7. It's easy to start, change, or stop. If you are interested in giving any one-time or reoccurring gifts online, click here.
ACH payments are an easy way to give to the church monthly. Scheduled ACH transactions are automatically transferred from your bank account to the church's bank account. It improves stewardship, encourages consistency, and increases our administrative effectiveness. If you would like to set this up, use a WBCDirect agreement form, or contact the business office at 630.876.6625.
Cash and checks are the most common way people give to the church. Make checks payable to "Wheaton Bible Church." If you would like your cash gifts to be reflected on your giving statement, use an offering envelope and be sure to write your name and address clearly. Unless you designate a specific fund or ministry, all gifts are directed to the General Fund, which supports our ministries.
For those interested, the church provides giving envelopes. Gifts received in these giving envelopes are tracked and sent out in a quarterly statement. If you would like to sign up to receive giving envelopes, please check the box on the envelope located in one of the chair racks in the worship center or call the church business office.
