HOW DO I GIVE?

At The Gathering, we want you to be able to give through whichever method is most convenient for you and your family.

ONLINE

My Gathering (preferred online method) – Planning Center Giving is an online platform that allows us to effectively communicate with and respond to the needs of the people of The Gathering & the city of Asheville. One of it’s best features allows you & your family to securely give online to the church using your bank account, credit card or debit card. Using this simple system, you can give a one-time gift or set up recurring donations.  Click the button below and/or watch the video to help you through this easy process.

 
 

***VERY IMPORTANT: For those who have previously set up recurring giving to The Gathering (before June 1st, 2017), please deactivate your giving through Elexio and set it up through Planning Center above.  You will need to log in to elexio, click the "giving" tab and cancel any recurring gifts.  If you currently give without a recurring gift, please begin giving through the link above via Planning Center Giving.

**PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US IF YOU NEED HELP WITH THIS OR WOULD LIKE FOR US TO EDIT YOUR GIVING FOR YOU.  YOU CAN CALL 828-552-3224 or EMAIL RDENSON@GATHERASHEVILLE.ORG

You can set up a way to easily give to The Gathering Church or one of our team members right from your phone!  Simply text the amount and the keyword to the number 84321. (Ex. "200 general" will give $200 to the general account.)

You’ll receive a text back with a link to complete the registration process. It will ask you to find and select your church.  Make sure you select THE GATHERING CHURCH. Text to Give is quick, easy, uses security to protect your personal information, and is never charged to your phone bill.

WHY SHOULD I GIVE?

 
 
 
 

Uncommon Generosity

At The Gathering Church,  we believe God has called us to live with uncommon generosity. We want to be generous to others with our time, talents, and finances.

 


 

WHAT IS A TITHE?

A tithe (which literally means “tenth”) is defined as the first 10% of a person’s gross income that is to be brought back to God by giving it to the local church. (Proverbs 3:9-10,Deuteronomy 14:23).The term “offering” refers to anything above and beyond the first 10%.

 
 
 

 
 
 
 

STEWARDSHIP

The ministry of The Gathering Church is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of the Gathering community. We work very hard to ensure we are properly managing the financial resources that God has granted us. We honor God’s provision by seeking wise stewardship, pursuing ethical business practices, and transparent accountability so that the financial integrity of The Gathering is above reproach. We pursue this goal through a system of internal controls over financial reporting, budgeting and spending.
