“Whoever is of a generous heart,
let him bring the LORD’s contribution.”
Our desire at Exodus is for the people of God to give out of the cheerful, generous overflow of their hearts in worship of God rather than money. We ask that those who call Exodus Church “home” be faithful and sacrificial in their giving so that we can multiply our ministry and fulfill the mission to which God has called us. This is good for us, as it fosters generosity, and good for the mission of Exodus, as it gives resources to accomplish the mission.

The Best Ways to Give
In an effort to help maximize your gift, we want you to know the costs associated with your chosen giving method. As you can see below, Giving In Person, using your banks Online Bill Pay, or using our Planning Center Online ACH giving option are the most effective ways to maximize your giving.
Example: For every $1,000 you give:
Giving In Person/Online Bill Pay does not have any transaction fee
(Total Giving: $1,000.00)
PCO ACH charges 25 cents per transaction
(Total Giving: $999.75)
PCO Debit/Credit Card charges 2.3% of your total transaction, plus 30 cents
(Total Giving: $976.70)
PCO Text Giving charges the same 2.3% of your total transaction, plus 30 cents
(Total Giving: $976.70)
As you can imagine, these fees add up when multiplied by greater amounts and over hundreds of gifts a month.
