Laurel provides several options for giving to allow for everyone to have flexibility in how they give, and give everyone options to budget, prioritize, and view contributions.
Offering Tray on Sunday
You may chose to donate in the offering basket each Sunday after our communion. We accept both cash and check in the offering tray. Money you contribute through a check will be input into our contribution system and can be viewed through our Member Portal. Please make checks payable to Laurel Church of Christ.
Bill Pay is available through most financial institutions, and is usually free of charge to you. Bill Pay does not charge a processing fee like our online giving system, and can be setup to send Laurel checks automatically per a schedule you define if you chose to do so. For more information on setting up Bill Pay, please contact your financial institution.
