Giving

Give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. Freely you have received; freely give...

Why we give

In the book of Acts we see an early Christian community radically generous with their possessions. So captivated by Jesus and his work, they were bold and fearless in giving themselves and their resources away. This generosity of time, energy, and finances made a remarkable impact on their world. In the same way, we are encouraged to live generously through service, relationships, hospitality, and finances as we seek to build up God’s people and reach the lost for Jesus.

Ways To Give

Give Online

Given our current situation, online giving is preferred. Please consider the additional fees when giving online.

Online giving is quick and easy (one-time or recurring), and we are pleased to accept credit, debit & ACH Transfers. Transaction fees of 2.3% apply for all credit and debit gifts.  A 1% fee applies for ACH transfers made through your bank. Transaction fees are paid by the church. 

Give Through Your Bank

Most banks offer a “Bill Pay” service with no fees to you or the church.  You set the $ amount, and the distribution date (one-time or recurring), and the church receives a bank-generated check.  

Give in Person or by Mail

We welcome personal checks or cash on Sunday mornings, or you can mail checks to the church office:  
**1292 Minnesota Ave. San Jose, CA 95125.**  

Give Stock

The church has a WellsTrade Account for the purpose of accepting stock/fund gifts.  The donor initiates the process by calling an 800 number and identifying the WGBC account number.  The transfer occurs within a few days. Contact us for specific instructions before you call.
