A message from Craig King, Deacon over finances:
Hello Rainbow! I hope you and your family are doing well and staying safe during these challenging times.
First, on behalf of the Elders, we wish to thank those that have given so faithfully during the past year with the on-going pandemic. The work of the church continues even when we are not meeting together and this also includes our expenses. So, your support is greatly needed and very much appreciated.
For those that have been affected by the pandemic and cannot give as you may wish to, we want you to know that God and the Elders here at Rainbow understand. We pray that your situation improves soon.
Since we are currently unable to meet in person, there are three ways that you can give your contribution that I want to go over with you.
1. Online - We use a program called EasyTithe that makes it simple to give online. You can click the "Give Now" button below to start the process. You enter the amount you wish to give each week and that will be automatically withdrawn each Sunday from your account.
You can set up reoccurring contributions, one-time contributions, change the amount, or discontinue at any time. Starting in January, you will see a small convenience fee added with each contribution. This is from EasyTithe, the company we use to collect your contributions online. Up until now, Rainbow has been absorbing these fees, but we humbly ask for your assistance with this in the new year. If you need any assistance with setting up online giving, call Sybil at the church building at 256-547-3731 (Office hours: Monday - Friday, 9:00am - 1:00pm) and she can set up a time with Dave to help you out. You can also watch a tutorial video below that you may find helpful.
2. Your bank's bill pay program - You can get in touch with your bank and they can set up a bill pay program that will automatically write a check or withdraw your contribution each week.
3. Mail or drop off your contribution at the building - You can mail in your contribution or drop it off at the church building during office hours. Our address is 2201 Rainbow Drive, Gadsden, AL 35901.
We are happy to assist you in any way you need. Just give us a call at 256-547-3731. We thank you for your support as we navigate through these uncertain times and we pray that we will be back together soon!
