“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 NIV

Five easy ways to give:


Make a one-time gift or arrange for a recurring transfer from your bank account. Giving online is the best way to ensure you’re able to faithfully give even when you’re out of town or unable to attend a service.  Click the button above to get started using our online giving platform. Please check out this short instructional video to see the online giving process in action. 


To get started, text the amount of your donation to 84321. When you initiate your first Text2Give donation, our system will respond with a message that includes a setup link. Tapping this link will take you to your mobile browser, and walk you through these steps:
  • Find your church: Giving will use your geographical location and phone number to suggest churches nearby (within 20 miles). If our church is not listed, or you aren’t within the geolocation radius, you can search by our church’s address (800 NE 6th Ave, Aledo, IL 61231) and filter results by church name.
  • Log in to your profile: After choosing a church, you will be asked to enter your name and email address to either create a new donor profile (first time donors), or log in to access your existing donor profile (returning donors).
  • Add or select a payment method: First-time donors can add a payment method to be used for this initial donation and future donations. Existing donors can log in to their profile to select a previously saved payment method.
  • Submit the donation: Once you submit your donation, this will initiate that first donation and enable Text2Give for future use.
After setup, you can simply text your donation amount to 84321 to initiate an online donation.
