Tomah Baptist Church has online giving available to those who desire to use it. Tomah Baptist strongly teaches that living "debt free" is a worthy goal for all Christians. We offer online giving only as a convenience and not as a way to circumvent sound biblical money management principles or in any way to incur debt. There are many benefits to giving online. Users of online giving are responsible for setting up and controlling their online giving options themselves. They can designate where their giving goes (general fund, building program, missions, etc.) and the frequency in which they give. Online giving is secure and tax deductible. Online giving allows you to set-up your giving using either a debit or credit card or an automatic bank draft to your account.
You are free to give via the weekly offering in the worship service, by mailing your contribution in to the office, or now by the internet and we welcome you to give whatever God has called you to, however God has called you to. If you do give online, you may desire to place an empty offering envelope in the offering plate. Simply write on the front of the envelope "Give online." There is no need to write your giving amounts on this envelope if you give online.
II Corinthians 9:7 reads, "Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity: for God loveth a cheerful giver."

Common Questions about Giving Online
Is Giving a Vital Part of Worship?
"Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine."
Proverbs 3:9-10 (KJV)
The Grace of Giving
Investing in the work of God remains the most important and significant use you can make of your money. By giving your tithe, a tenth of your income, which rightfully belongs to God, and by giving an offering above that, you can reap both immediate and eternal rewards. When you give, you are contributing to the ministry and work of your church, not only to be a blessing and help to your fellow church members and our local ministries, but also to reach the lost around the world with the Gospel of Christ.
Since we believe that God truly wants us to tithe with our firstfruits and to give with a cheerful attitude, we have provided a way to where you can now tithe and give your offerings online. Don't forget, Christ gave His life for you, why not give back what is already his?
What is Involved in Giving Online?
First Step: Your Personal Information
Before you can start giving online, we first need to gather some personal information. This information will be secure. To read more about site security, click here.
Second Step: Your Tithes and Offerings
After you have supplied us with your personal information, then you have to determine how much you would like to give. You will be able to designate your gift either as a tithe or as an offering to any ministry of your choice.
Third Step: Your Credit/Debit Information
Finally, before you can complete your giving, you must supply us with your credit/debit card information. Once again, this information will be secure.
Is it Secure? The Answer is YES!
Google Checkout uses 256-bit military strength encryption which is the most effective and secure form of encryption. It scrambles information so that the original message is not visible to any unauthorized recipients. In the past sites used 40-bit encryption, but that became too easy for computer thieves to decode. The 256-bit encryption "locks" the original information and makes the ciphertext virtually impossible for any man or machine to "unlock."
What are the Benefits of online giving?
You can prioritize giving in your budget. The Bible indicates giving is to be a "first" and not a last or leftover matter in my life. Read Proverbs 3:9-10. It is easy to let our standards and intentions be compromised by the press of expenses and billing cycles. With online giving, your giving is done automatically.
You can increase your faithfulness. Have you ever forgotten your gift, left it at home or pledged to double it in the future? Have you had times where you have fallen behind because of travel and other schedule interruptions? Online giving provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness.
You can help your church. Through online giving, you expedite your gift, simplify our accounting, and strengthen our base of regular support.
You can encourage faith and faithfulness in the lives of fellow believers. As you plan and prioritize your giving, you will lead the way for others to grow and mature in their spiritual stewardship. Being a forerunner in this new area of planned giving, you can provide personal testimony and example for others to follow.
