As people of faith, individuals generously give their time, possessions and money in support of this church’s many vital ministries.

Giving financially in support of Resurrection and its ministries is an opportunity to honor God with the resources and provisions that He has provided for us. Use the fast and secure online giving app Tithe.ly to make your donation.

Tithe.ly

Gifts made to the Permanent Endowment Fund at Resurrection help provide a perpetual source of support for the mission and ministries of the church. Examples of these may include:

  • Real Estate
  • Stocks/Bonds
  • Trusts

Contact Dick Andrews for more information.

Gifts made to Resurrection on behalf of a family member or individual are a meaningful way to honor their name and legacy.

FAQ

Is online giving safe?2019-09-29T22:25:29-05:00

[DRAFT from westwoodcc.org; to be edited, etc.]
At Resurrection UMC Hastings we use an online database called Breeze. This system gives access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. Breeze provides the security for the system and has been fully tested.

There are two aspects of security related to the system. First, Breeze makes the following statement from their security documentation: “Breeze is responsible for the security of all cardholder data transmitted through its systems. To ensure that your cardholder data is handled securely, Breeze has been assessed by a Qualified Security Assessor (QSA) and found to be compliant with the PCI DSS as a Level 1 Service Provider.”

Second, the merchant provider is responsible for the security of all cardholder data transmitted, stored
and processed on their systems. Tithe.ly is our Merchant Provider. Their security documentation states:
“Whether data is in transit or at rest, we use enterprise grade encryption and adapt our approaches as
risk, technology and recommended approaches change. Tithe.ly is PCI compliant and works closely with
auditors to ensure our security standards exceed compliance standards. Protecting your personally
identifiable information matters. We strictly control our data storage to ensure that it is protected and
your privacy is preserved.”

An additional aspect of security relates to account creation. When you create a new account in the
system, you will be able to donate immediately, but you will not have access to any previous
contribution information. To view prior contributions we must manually link your previous information
to the account you created.

In order to verify the authenticity of the account request, we will ensure that all of your data matches
our current records (e.g., address, phone number and email address). If there is any question, we will
contact you via email before creating the link. Since this is a manual process, we will perform these steps
approximately once a week, but if you would like to speed up this process, you can send us an email at
accounting@rezumc.org.

When you create your account, you will determine your own login id and password. If you forget your
login id or password, you can have the system email it to you by entering the email address that you
used when you created your account. If you need help or cannot remember the email address you used,
you can contact us at accounting@rezumc.org. You may change your password at any time.

How are we raising funds for our ministries?2019-09-29T22:38:38-05:00

We’re still funding all our ministries, but asking for support just once a year at Easter rather than spreading fundraisers throughout the calendar year.

How often do you talk about money?2019-09-29T22:52:40-05:00

Resurrection has very generous persons supporting it. We discuss and seek funding for the operations, ministries and improvements at three key times over the course of a year: October, Easter and May.

Living generously isn’t about money. It’s about transformation.

Generosity will change your life. When you put God above material things, you declare your trust and faith in him and invite his blessings into your life. But it doesn’t just change your life—we see Jesus’ transforming power at work every day through healed families, restored faith, and stronger communities.

Living generously isn’t a transaction. It’s a relationship.

The Bible teaches us a baseline standard for giving: the tithe. When we give the first 10% of our income to the church, we put God first in our lives. But it’s not about the transaction—it’s about putting our relationship with God above everything else. Tithing is the foundation of our giving—an act of worship that expresses our gratitude, faith, and love for God and others.

Living generously isn’t a one-time thing. It’s a lifestyle.

God has called us to live generously. We do this when we respond to God by supporting the needs of the church, community and world—when we serve others and share our time, talents and finances. We do this when we pray for people, show love, and live each day with God’s wisdom. We do this by celebrating what God is doing—in our church and in the lives of others.
