Giving


The ministry and mission of this congregation is supported by donations from members and friends. All donations are fully tax-deductible. Checks may be made payable to Avon Lake UCC; online giving can be made by clicking the donate tab in the right corner of this site.

Automatic Withdrawal: We encourage giving through automatic withdrawal, as it keeps our income stream steady. Please complete this ACH AUTOMATIC WITHDRAWAL INFORMATION and return to the church office to set up weekly or monthly giving from your bank.

4 Ways to Give copyDonate via PayPal or Credit Card:  Donations to our general fund can be made via your PayPal account or by credit card using the donate tab on the right corner of this website (avonlakeucc.org/donate).  A QR Code with this link is also in our pews and can be scanned for donations through your mobile device.  A giving kiosk is also available in the narthex, near the church offices.

Text to give:  conveniently give using your mobile device by texting GIVE to 440-571-7676.  You will receive a link to set up payment with a credit card which can be saved for future donations. Once it is set up, text COMMANDS for a list of available text commands.

Annual Giving:  Each fall the Board of Stewardship asks for financial commitments for the following year.  These pledges, or promises to support the church financially, allow the Board to prepare a budget and make plans for the future year’s programs.  Giving by envelope may be done at all of our worship services during the Morning Offering.  Envelopes are available in the pew or you may get a numbered packet for the year from our church office.  You can make an online pledge through our website here.

Special Giving:  Many people like to support special programs of the church throughout the year, including youth ministry, music ministry, parish nursing, and capital improvements and repairs.  Please contact Senior Minister Kelly Brill, pastor@avonlakeucc.org if you would like to make a donation towards a specified area of ministry or mission.

Bequest/Endowment Giving:  Each of us can do our part to ensure that this church is here for future generations.  Please consider including the church in your will. There are many creative ways to leave money to the church, for people at any income level.  Contact Senior Minister Kelly Brill for a consultation.
