Giving

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

- Matthew 6:21

Why we give.

God is generous and so he calls us to be as well.  What we do with what God has given us shows the world where our hearts are at and helps proclaim the gospel. We want to glorify God with every area of our lives, and that includes what we do with our finances.

Ways To Give

Give Online

The easiest way to give is right here on this page.  You can set up one time or reoccurring gifts here or in our church app.  By setting up a reoccurring gift, it allows you give regularly out of the blessings that God has given to you and it allows us as a church to better plan based on the gifts that are being given.  

You can track your giving throughout the year by logging into your account and seeing what you have given so far. When you set up a gift, you'll be given the option to cover the processing fees associated with credit/debit card gifts.  By doing this, you help us use more of the money you donate for ministry work.
Our online giving platform is changing from Vanco to Subsplash. You can read an explanation below, but for now you can still access your Vanco account here:

Give In Person

Part of our worship is returning to God a portion of what he has given to us.  During each of our services you're welcome to give back to God via cash or check.  Members are encouraged to use the giving envelopes that are provided for you at the beginning of each year to help us track your gifts and provide you with a donation statement at the end of the year. 

Mail A Check

If you are unable to come to worship and don't feel comfortable using our online giving option, you are welcome to mail a check to the church office. Your giving envelope is pre-addressed and you simply need to add a stamp and drop it in the mail. You can also place it in an envelope and send it to:

Trinity Lutheran Church
520 N Garfield St
Algona, Iowa 50511

Why we're changing from Vanco to Subsplash for Our Online Giving:

With the launch of our new website, we're also launching a new online giving provider which will give us more versatility and will be easier to use. Many of you have signed up for online giving through our current provider -- Vanco -- and we will be contacting you directly to help you switch your gift over to Subsplash.  Here are a few thoughts on the change.

  • Lower Processing Fees
    Subsplash's innovative GrowCurve offers the lowest processing rates for online giving. The more we give through Subsplash, the more our processing rates are reduced. This translates to more of your gifts being available for ministry.

  • Fast & Secure Process
    Subsplash is certified for the highest encryption and security and the process of giving online can take less than 1 minute once you've set up your account.

Find Your Starting Point To Switch
We desire to make this shift simple and efficient for you. Below are steps to help you migrate over to the Subsplash Giving platform. Please go to the section below that best fits your current giving situation. (Please note that you can continue using Vanco for online gifts through July 31, 2020. As of August 1, 2020, you will no longer be able to make online gifts through Vanco. So we encourage you to make the switch now!)

1) Use the form above to set up a new gift through Subsplash. From this page, enter an amount, then on the right, choose the Fund, Frequency, and  specific date to start. Choose Next and follow the simple
