March 2020 Meridian Messenger
At Meridian Street, we believe that stewardship is an intrinsic part of who we are as a community of believers—a reflection of our connection with each other and to our God rather than a financial concept.

Our Philosophy of Financial Stewardship
Meridian Street is committed to living within our budget and has ended the last several years with a small surplus after paying all our bills.
Our annual stewardship campaign begins around the end of October and ends four weeks later with our annual Thanksgiving Dinner.
Common Questions about e-Giving:
What is e-Giving and what are its benefits?
Today people are willing to have money transferred from their bank accounts to pay bills, insurance premiums, mortgages, fitness memberships and more. Online giving provides the same convenience for those who want to faithfully and consistently make a financial gift to the church.
While we accept gifts via credit cards, we strongly suggest that no one use a credit card unless it is paid off every month.
Is e-Giving secure?
Yes. We use an established third-party vendor as a clearing house to transfer funds to our bank. Information submitted online is protected by physical, electronic and procedural safeguards in compliance with applicable federal and state regulations, including firewalls and data encryption.
Can I give to multiple funds (e.g., general, special offerings, etc.)?
Yes. To indicate your desired fund allocation, please select the appropriate fund at the bottom of the e-Giving form.
Can I set up recurring gifts?
Yes. You can set up a recurring gift on the e-Giving form by selecting a type of recurring transaction in the the Donation Frequency box.
Are there fees associated with each method of e-Giving?
Each type of e-Giving incurs some kind of fee. These fees will be absorbed by Meridian Street Church and not your account. Withdrawls from your checking account (ACH) incur a small flat fee that is less than the percentage fee incurred with credit/debit card transactions. Therefore, automatic debits from your checking account (ACH) are the preferred method of e-Giving.
