South Gate offers online giving as a convenience to those wishing to give their tithes and offerings in this way. You may make a one-time contribution or set up regularly scheduled donations at intervals of your choosing. Simply click on the button below to enroll or give.


How does Online Giving work?

Click the button above and simply follow the directions to set up your payment. You can make a donation via your checking or savings account or your debit or credit card; it will be transferred directly to the church’s account.


Can I donate to various funds and causes in the Church?

Absolutely! On the donation page, once you have selected one fund and amount, you can use the “Add Additional” button to give to another fund.


How often will the amount be deducted from my account?

That’s up to you. You can make a one-time donation or set up recurring donations on a schedule that you choose.


Can I give by text message?

Yes. To do this simply text one of the key words below to (417)228-8222. If you have not already set up an account you will receive a response directing you through the set-up process. After your account is set up and texting is enabled, you can text a key word followed by a space and the amount you wish to give to (417)228-8222 to submit a contribution. Below are examples, any amount can be given when text giving.


GIVE 313                 Donates $313 to Tithes & Offerings (South Gate Mission Fund)

DEBT 212                Donates $212 to Free In Three (Debt Retirement)

ASSIST 309             Donates $309 to our Benevolent Fund (assistance to church members & others in need in the community)

PROMISE 125          Pays $125 for Promise Preschool tuition


What if I make a mistake during the process?

No problem, you will have a chance to confirm, cancel, or change any transaction before it is submitted.


What do I put in the offering plate when it comes around during worship?

You may mark the “I gave online” box on your offering envelope and place it in the offering plate if you wish. However, this is not necessary. The church will receive notification of your online gift.


What if I try it and I don’t like it?

You can cancel your automatic deduction schedule on the website at any time.


Can I look up my donations online?

You can view all donations completed online, print out a statement, and even use it for tax purposes. Please note that the online statement will not show any offerings you gave at the church (e.g., checks or cash giving). You will continue to receive a statement from the church office of all your contributions, including online gifts, at the end of each year.


How much does Online Giving cost?

Nothing to you and a nominal fee to the church. Use of debit or credit cards will result in higher fees paid by the church.


Can anyone at the church see my account numbers?

No one at the church has access to your account information.


Will I be expected or required to use Online Giving?

Absolutely not.  Online giving is being provided as a convenience to our members who prefer to give their offering in this way. You may continue to give your tithes and offerings by cash or check if you prefer.


May I use my credit card?

Yes. You may make a donation by debit card, credit card, or automatic withdrawal from your checking or savings account.
