What is Online Giving?
Online Giving is an easy and convenient way to support the ministry of Oakland Drive Christian Church. The benefits of using Online Giving include the convenience of being able to give from anywhere at a time that is convenient for you, not having to write checks, and the ability to set up recurring automated donations so you don't miss an opportunity to give when you are away from the church.
Can I give using my mobile device?
Absolutely! In fact, if you plan to give on a regular basis, we recommend this option as the app lets you create an account with Tithe.ly so you don't have to put in your card info for each transaction, you can also schedule automated giving via the app.

How does the church process online donations or online payments?
We use Tithely to process credit card donations. Tithely handles all of the security necessary for processing the transaction and then transfers the money into the church bank account. The church receives an instant notification about the donation/payment. Our bookkeeper is able to enter donations into the normal giving record just like donations given on Sunday mornings.
How secure is online giving/payments?
Tithely is a secure way to make a payment with your credit card because this information is only processed on Tithely's secure system. The church never sees or has access to your credit card or bank account information.
Will the information I provide be kept private?
We take your privacy very seriously. When you make a donation/payment, the bookkeeper(s) review a giving display with your name and the amount of your donation/payment. This information is not shared with anyone else.
How can I keep track of my online giving / payments?
You will receive an annual giving statement from the church which lists all donations you have given (online and in person). If you signed up with Tithely, you can also see a record of donations by clicking on "My Account" then "My Recent Giving" and "My Automated Giving". All donations and payments using your credit card will show up on your credit card statement clearly marked from Oakland Drive Christian Church.
Why does ODCC accept Credit Card payments?
We accept credit card payments because of the convenience and security that credit cards provide for sending money over the internet. We do not want anyone to go into debt to make a donation or payment to the church and would strongly counsel against using credit cards if this is your situation.
Can I make an anonymous donation?
There is no way to make an anonymous donation through the use of online giving. The bookkeeper at the church is the only one who knows who makes donations and the amount of the donation.
Is there any charge or fee to me for this service?
The church pays a nominal fee (2.9% + $0.30 per transaction) to Tithly for credit and debit transactions for the convenience and security of the service.
