Ways To Give
DEBIT vs. CREDIT: By registering through our online banking system link above, you can set up regular or one time transfers directly from a bank account, a debit card or credit card. Please note there are fees of up to 4% with some credit cards, so direct transfers from bank accounts or through debit cards are preferred.
RECURRING GIFTS: As Christians, we confess that every gift comes from God. Giving is part of the Christian life because we want to participate in God's Kingdom work in our city and world. Based on some biblical traditions, Christians have often dedicated 10% to giving. Consider setting up a recurring gift as a discipline of generosity. We hope believers will find the joy of regular giving, even if that means giving 1% or any small amount, with the hope of giving more in the future.
GENERAL FUND: The General Fund is our main budget. Through the General Fund Salem supports its worship service, community gatherings, pastoral salaries, RUF Wake Forest, Intervarsity Salem College, Global Missionaries, and more.
MERCY FUND: The Mercy Fund is separate from our General Fund. The Mercy Fund supports the congregation of Salem Pres by helping people meet material needs like rent, medical bills, as well as counseling. It also supports our partner ministries in the city: Crisis Control Ministry, The Barnabas Center, Samaritan Medical Clinics, and the City with Dwellings.
