E-Giving is another way for you to give to the ministries of Mechanicsville Baptist Church.  Many of you are like me and use the bank to pay monthly bills, and usually use checks for your tithe to the church.  Hopefully e-giving will be a tool for you to use if you no longer use checks, carry cash, or just want the convenience of giving online.  However, you may still use a check with e-giving. 

The gifts you give go to help in so many ways.  As we participate in missions locally and globally, we are parners with so many people and ministries around the world.  As our gifts are added to other gifts, our gifts are multiplied, and are used to make a difference in so many lives.

I hope you will use this tool as it is intended to help you fulfill your commitment to the church through your faithful giving.
