*Thank you for your interest in giving electronically to Memorial Park Church. Many people who give regularly to our church find that doing so electronically is a convenient option, especially during times when they cannot attend worship. Electronic giving also helps the church predict its income so that the ministry and mission of the church can be better planned.
If you are a member of the MPC family, you can set-up online giving through MPC Connect. With MPC Connect, online giving is easier than ever! Now you don’t have to worry about remembering your check or catching up on weeks when you’re out of town. Just log-in and click on the Give tab in the left hand menu to schedule a one-time or repeating gift. And you have complete control—you will be able to modify or halt recurring transactions any time you desire. You can even use your credit or debit card, although we ask regular givers to set-up an ACH transaction from your checking account because the fees for the church are lower. And if you do use a card, please consider adding 3% to cover the fee. To designate giving for an account that is not listed, contact Cathy Pavlock, and we can add it for you.
If you are not a member of MPC, or do not wish to use MPC Connect, you can still make a contribution.
We would never want you to go into debt by using your credit card to make a contribution—this is offered as a convenience for people who pay their card off every month. If you find yourself in a position where your debt level makes it difficult to give, let us help you work your way out of debt so you can live and give like never before! Contact Cathy Pavlock to get started.
Memorial Park Church is a non-profit corporation, completely dependent on the gifts of members and supporters. Our ministry is sustained by weekly voluntary offerings.
The church presents its budget for the coming year at its annual Congregational Meeting in August. All members are also asked to prayerfully consider the Biblical call to God’s people to tithe (give one-tenth of their income) to support the Lord’s work. Members are given an opportunity to express their faith commitment to supporting Memorial Park’s ministry by promising to give a portion of their income.
Offering envelopes are available every year for each church family in order to guarantee confidentiality and the proper accounting for each contribution. Additional envelopes may be found in the pew racks or obtained at the Welcome Center desk. Use of these envelopes is not required but they may be used to identify yourself when making cash contributions, in order to receive appropriate tax credit, or to specify donations for designated purposes. If you contribute by check without a giving envelope, we will use the information on your check to assign credit for the donation.
Our Annual Report is available each August to members, giving an account of all personnel costs, administrative expenses, missions giving, and program expenses for the previous year.
If you wish to express your commitment to Christ in a tangible way by agreeing to support Memorial Park financially, or have any questions about the church’s budget, financial procedures or your own giving receipts, please contact Cathy Pavlock, Executive Director of Operations.
Each year during Summer Surge, we generally hold a collection for one of our local community partners or our international mission partners. This year, we would have held a food pantry collection during the weeks of Summer Surge to benefit Uncommon Grounds Café. In an effort to continue to provide support for this local partner, we've decided to invite the whole church to participate! Throughout the month of July, please consider donating to Uncommon Grounds Café to restock their food pantry! You can bring physical donations to the church on Saturday nights or Sunday mornings–collection bins will be outside the Clayton Gym, Westminster Hall, and the Sanctuary. During the week, you can leave donations in the administrative wing vestibule between the hours of 9 and 3. You can also donate monetarily online here Uncommon Grounds Café from the dropdown menu. We thank you for your generosity in supporting this mission partner!
