Give at The Link Church
“But since you excel in everything—in faith, in speech, in knowledge, in complete earnestness and in the love we have kindled in you—see that you also excel in this grace of giving.” 2 Corinthians 8:7
We have a passion to excel in giving at The Link Church. We are committed to fulfilling God’s vision to make a difference in our community and around the world (Acts 1:8), and giving is one way to support our efforts.
Giving is a tremendous blessing and joy that inspires our spiritual growth and walk with God. It is God’s way of growing our faith in him (Matthew 6:21) and supporting his kingdom purposes on earth (Matthew 28:18-20). It is also a vehicle God uses to reward cheerful givers with financial blessings and the experience of the abundant life as a follower of Jesus (Lk. 6:38). Finally, it is the supreme opportunity to touch lives with the gospel, collectively as the body of Christ.
We are a fiscally sound ministry with impeccable financial integrity. You can be assured that you are sowing into good financial ground.
You may give your Tithes, Offering and other gifts in worship service or securely via our website (www.getlinked.tv). We encourage all who give to The Link Church to practice good stewardship. We do not encourage giving in a manner that increases your consumer debt. For more information about giving, please see the “Frequently Asked Questions” section below.
Thank you for sowing your financial gifts into The Link Church to make a difference in our community and around the world.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is giving online to The Link Church secure and confidential?
We use a reputable online company that uses the same encryption technology used by banks and ecommerce companies to keep your data secure and safe. Online giving is treated with the same confidentiality as our worship service offerings.

Once you click on the “Give Online” link, you will be rerouted to the online link for giving. After clicking on an option, simply follow the instructions provided.
May I give with my credit card?
We, at The Link Church, always encourage good stewardship. We do not encourage giving that increases consumer debt. Proverbs 22:7 states that “…the borrower is servant to the lender.” We do not want people to go into debt giving to God. We offer credit card giving as an option but advise that you manage your credit card transactions wisely (i.e., paying your credit card balance off prior to the end of your monthly billing cycle).
When is the transaction processed and when are online gifts counted?
Gifts are processed immediately, but can take up to 2-3 business days to show up in your account records. You will receive a contribution receipt via email from The Link Church usually within 24 hours of the transaction.
Can I change a scheduled contribution?
You can edit or delete a scheduled contribution at any time.
I want to give online, but I like the action of putting something in the offering plate as part of my Sunday worship.
You may place a copy of the email receipt in the offering plate during worship if you like. The church office automatically receives a copy.
Is online giving tax-deductible?
All giving donations to The Link Church are tax-deductible as allowed by law. Online giving will be included in your end-of-year giving statement.
