(and even more essential in these times.)
Simply click this link to get started, but more detailed instructions are below from Joe Master, our Director of Finance.
"All things come of you, O Lord, and of your own have we given you."
1 Chronicles 29:14
We have upgraded our online giving platform! The steps below for “text to give” and “E-giving” have changed slightly.
Many of you already use online banking for managing your personal accounts and paying bills. Simply add St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church as one of your bill pays as you would for any other vendor. You will need the church address, phone number and an account number.

ONLINE GIVING or E-GIVING
Our new online or E-Giving platform is now fully functional and ready for your donation. Please click on the link below to access this service.
The following screen will appear:
FUNDS FIELD. For this filed, if you have not turned in a signed pledge card and you are making a general donation, please select Non-pledge donation.

For example, if you are donating to Pack a Snack, choose the Outreach – Pack a Snack fund.
