Giving

Thank You For Your Generosity

People in our community love contributing generously because they see the amazing things God is doing here. We use that money to connect people to God, help them grow spiritually, and to serve our city and our world.

We have all kinds of accountability built into our system, so everything has integrity and is beyond reproach. We offer people the opportunity to give at our services and online giving is available.

As we grow, we are making the transition to a new online giving system. If you have been giving through Aware3, you can now transition over and begin to give through Planning Center.

Below are links to access both giving systems as well as an FAQ about the switch. Please make note that on March 1st, we will no longer be using Aware3.

FAQ

Why are you leaving Aware3?

As we’ve grown as a church, our systems and processes have been refined. Aware3 has been a solid giving solution, but we’ve outgrown the functionality and need to move to a better system. Church giving solutions have come a long way and we have found a stronger giving platform that works seamlessly with what we do as a church.

What is Planning Center Giving?

As a church, we use Planning Center for Kid’s Check-in, Scheduling Volunteers, Small Groups, and more. It’s robust system has helped streamline what we do as a church. Planning Center Giving works in-line with what we are already doing. We want to make our experience seamless and moving to Planning Center Giving is a big piece of that.

What do I do with my Aware3 automated giving?

When you’re ready, you can stop your automated giving through Aware3 and set it up through Planning Center Giving.

Is Planning Center Giving safe?

Yes, it is. The giving platform is secure and easy to use.

You can give online via credit or debit card, Apple Pay, and ACH bank transfer.

When I give, what does it go towards?

As a church, we strive to live out the mission of being people helping people, to find and follow Jesus. Your generosity goes to help people with counseling, families in need, non-profits we partner with (PiN Homeless Ministry, Aidnow, Crisis Pregnancy Center, WayPoint Church Planting) and more. As you give, you also help support the ongoing efforts to minister to our city.

Generosity is something we do as an overflow of how God has moved in our lives. As your grow in your faith, giving is a natural part of that spiritual growth.

Why have the overlap until March 1st?

We want to help families transition as smoothly as possible. Giving the overlap allows each family to move from Aware3 over to Planning Center Giving without feeling anxious or having to rush to move over.

Can I access my giving statements online?

Yes, absolutely. You can email our Adult Ministries Pastor at dan@forefront.org and he can help you with how to access your online giving statements.

Who can I talk to about the questions I have concerning donations and giving to the church?

You can talk to Dan Pollard, our Adult Ministries Pastor. He can be reached via email: dan@forefront.org
