Ways to Make Offerings to the Church in Chicago

1 Cor. 16:2 – On the first day of the week each one of you should lay aside in store to himself whatever he may have been prospered, that no collections be made when I come.
2 Cor. 9:7 – Each one as he has purposed in his heart, not out of sorrow or out of necessity, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Dear Saints,

In this current climate, we encourage the saints to be before the Lord, in light of individual circumstances, to remember the giving to the church. We look to the Lord in faith for all the on-going expenses of the church.
The saints can give offerings to the church in the follow ways:
1. Mail checks to the bookstore (payable to “Church in Chicago”)
     a. Mail to: 3931 W. Irving Park Road, Chicago, IL 60618
2. Venmo (easiest method)
     a.  Install the Venmo app on your mobile device
     b.  Launch the app
     c.  Follow the setup instructions to create an account and add either 1) your bank account or 2) credit card.
     d. Send payment to @ChurchinChicago.
     e. Key Note – In keeping with the principle in Matthew 6, it is strongly recommended that the saints edit their privacy settings as follows:
          i. Tap the menu at the upper-left corner (three horizontal lines)
         ii. Go to Settings
        iii. Go to Privacy
         iv. Select “Private”
3. Autopay (i.e., billpay) by bank – Saints currently using this method may continue to do so.
4. Zelle (via banking apps from Chase, Bank of America, Citibank, etc.) – please send to the email “thechurchinchicago@gmail.com”.
