Introducing the easyTithe Mobile Giving App for iPhone.
As we all know, mobile internet traffic is a large and ever-growing segment of internet traffic, making up roughly 30% of all traffic. But what’s more important (and what you may not know) is that mobile users strongly prefer to use a mobile app as opposed to a mobile web interface. That’s where the easyTithe mobile giving app comes in.
Using the easyTithe mobile giving app, donors can:
- Give to your organization from their phone in 10 seconds or less
- Manage their payment profile
- View all of their giving history
Donors simply download the “easyTithe” app from the Apple App store, find your church, and give! When searching the app store, type in “easytithe” as one word.

St John the Divine invites you to consider our secure electronic giving program as an easy alternative for your regular giving. Electronic giving offers convenience for you and helps the ministries of the church by providing more consistent giving. We offer several different ways to take advantage of electronic giving:
Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account. If you are already using direct debit to make mortgage and car payments or to pay utility bills, then you know how it works. This is also referred to as “ACH Debits” (Automated Clearing House Debits)
Credit and Debit Card Giving lets you make one time offerings or automatically on a predetermined schedule using a credit or debit card.
e-Check Giving – the electronic version of your paper check is available for one time giving.
Online Giving lets you to give directly from our website to make one-time
donation or to set up a schedule of automatic donations. By setting up a
password protected profile, you will be able to log in at any time to make
donations, change a recurring giving plan or view your personal giving history.
You may also print a report of all electronic giving which is IRS compliant for tax purposes.
Online Giving is available for Stewardship, Capital Campaign, Memorials, Easter and Christmas Offerings, Blessing of the Animals and the Discretionary Fund.
