Introducing Online Giving

Trinity Southern Baptist Church now offers an Online Giving program, allowing you more options for the ministry of giving. You are not obligated to use this service. We are offering this service to give you more ways to give your tithes, offerings, and donations to church-related ministries and events.

Participating in online giving allows you to transfer your gifts conveniently from your bank to the church without the need to write a paper check.

While it is possible to use a credit or debit card for giving through this online service, we ask that you consider using your bank account number and routing number (the numbers at the bottom of your checks) for the transaction instead. This prevents the church from being charged debit fees for the transaction, and helps keep you out of debt (in the case of credit cards).

Please use the routing number from your checks,
not the routing number from your deposit slips! It may be different, and could cause your bank to reject it.
