Why Online Giving?
We have had multiple requests from church members to offer various electronic giving options.
- Offers a convenient, private and secure option for giving.
- Strengthens participation and support in the church
- Allows you to contribute even when you’re out of town
- Is more secure than bringing cash or checks to church
Option 1: Use Online Bill Pay
Contributions to Cherry Street Baptist Church can usually be automated quite easily using your bank’s online services, if offered. Most banks use a secure and encrypted electronic payment system like the Automated Clearing House (ACH) to handle these transactions.
Recurring or one-time contributions can be set up using your bank’s online bill-pay system. This will allow funds from your account to be sent to Cherry Street Baptist Church.
When prompted by your bank, please list the church contact information as follows:
Cherry Street Baptist Church
1201 S Oak Grove Ave
Springfield, MO 65804
Please make sure to note any designations on the memo line of the check. All funds received without a designation will be deposited to the general fund.
This is the preferred option for online contributions since no cost or fees are incurred by you or the church (See FAQ’s for additional information).
Option 2 : Online Giving
Cherry Street Baptist Church has contracted with Commerce Bank to give us the option of receiving secure and encrypted contributions through Debit Card, E-check and Credit Card. Through Commerce Bank, gifts can be set up for one-time or as recurring transactions.
You will not incur any fees using Commerce Bank for your contributions, but the church will pay a fee of 2.45% of the contribution amount. If you wish to offset that expense so the full contribution amount is received by the church, you can add the additional amount to your contribution.
