We don’t give to a church

We give through a church  

At Emmanuel, we are passionate about advancing the gospel in New England and around the world! As you invest financially in God’s work through Emmanuel, your generosity has an eternal impact.

Online giving transition

We are currently in transition to a new church management software called Planning Center which features an improved online giving experience and better integration with our church database. Planning Center is secure and user-friendly, and we believe you will like using it as much as we do!

We use a church management and finance tool called Planning Center. To view, update, and monitor all of your account information, as well as view your giving activity and obtain year-end contribution statements, you can log in here.

2. Is my information secure?

Yes, all payment processing is handled on PCI Level 1 Compliant servers. Your information is held securely and will remain private (never given away to third parties other than to process your scheduled contributions).

Emmanuel partners with a professional and reputable outside accounting and consulting firm for the oversight of all financial matters. This outside partner provides transparent accountability and ensures best industry-standard practices in the management of our gifts to gospel ministry.

3. How do I schedule and manage my giving?

Why Generosity?

 “Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Giving at Emmanuel is defined as “grace-giving from willing hearts”—never pressured. Though God could never need our money, He graciously invites us to invest into His purposes in reaching unbelieving hearts. We give because He has first given us His own Son. He provides for our needs and invites us to steward His gifts well. As we are generous through the local church, we are investing in the kingdom of Jesus Christ and His work in transforming the hearts of people!
