Online giving
Thank you for considering a gift to help Living Hope proclaim the life-changing, soul-saving gospel of Jesus Christ in our community and throughout the world.

Offerings to our Lord are freely given from the gifts he has first given to us, in thanks for his limitless grace, and for the purpose of proclaiming his love to the world in word and deed.

There are several ways to donate to Living Hope:
 
An offering is taken each week as part of our Sunday service.
 
Offerings may be mailed to Living Hope Lutheran Church, 3903 Old Hundred Rd S, Midlothian, VA 23112.
 
Offerings may be given online. Online offerings are processed through Easy Tithe, a safe and secure way to give one-time or recurring gifts to the general work of the church or to special projects. Following the link below will take you to a secure site where you may give with or without registering. Registration offers the benefits of setting up recurring gifts and of easy access to your contribution records. Online donations may be made through MasterCard, Visa, or from your checking account via an e-check (ACH) transaction.

 
FAQ
    Is it safe to give online?
  • Yes. In many ways giving online is safer than writing a check because an electronic gift cannot be lost or stolen. The security of the system is continually managed by Easy Tithe and is on par with the security of big online retailers.
    Do I need to set up an EasyTithe account?
  • Setting up an account is not necessary to give. The main giving page displays a "Quick Give" feature that allows a gift without logging in. Advantages to setting up an account include online tracking of offerings, recurring offering features, and the convenience of not having to enter credit card or bank information every time you give.
    Are there fees?
  • Not to you. The church will pay a small percentage as a processing fee. The church pays a 3% fee for credit and debit card transactions. The church pays a .75% fee for e-checks (ACH). To give directly from your checking or savings account by ACH, click on the image of a check in the upper-right-hand corner of the giving window.
    What types of accounts can I give from?
  • You can give online from your checking account via an e-check (ACH) transaction. You can also give using MasterCard and Visa.
    Can I make a one-time contribution?
  • Yes. The system allows you the option of either making a one-time contribution or setting up a recurring contribution. For a one-time contribution, you can designate that the contribution be made immediately or, for both one-time and recurring contributions, you can schedule them to be drawn from your account on the date(s) specified by you.
    Can I review my donation history online?
  • Yes. The site will allow you to view and print the complete history of your contributions that have been given online.
    Will I still receive regular contribution statements from the church?
  • Yes. The church will continue to prepare year-end contribution statements for tax purposes.
    When will contributions be withdrawn from my account?
  • Contributions will be withdrawn from your specified account within 48 hours of the date you request. This time frame allows for the contribution to process through your bank and the church's bank. If the date of your contribution falls on a weekend or holiday, the transaction will be initiated the next business day.
    Can I designate my gift to a particular cause?
  • Yes. In addition to the General Operating Fund, there are a number of designated funds which you can select from the drop-down menu.
    How will I know that I have set up my gift correctly?
  • Immediately after submitting your contribution, you will receive a verification email.
    Can I use a debit card?
  • You can use a debit card from Visa or MasterCard as a credit card, but true debit cards are not accepted through the EasyTithe system due to the sensitivity of securely requesting a Personal Identification Number (PIN) online. ACH bank drafts can be used instead for true debits.
