Now you can use your VISA or Mastercard debit or credit card to tithe, or give to special funds at CBC. In addition, you can set up electronic funds transfer (EFT) directly from your checking or savings account.
There are a number of ways to do any of these transactions:
Web browser on ANY device (computer, laptop or tablet)
Any smartphone via a web browser
To do it on your smart phone, desktop/laptop computer or a tablet, go to https://cbctopeka.churchcenteronline.com then follow the prompts on the screen. Be sure to select the fund you are donating to. It defaults to the “general” fund, but you will have options to give to other things specifically, like the “building fund”, “benevolence” or “missions”.
To text your tithe or donation, send a text message with the amount you want to give to 84321. The first time you do this, the system will ask you to set up your account. After you’ve done that, the next time you send an amount it will go through right away. You will receive a confirmation text and will be emailed a receipt to confirm your gift. You can also give to specific funds via text message. Just text the amount followed by the fund name (text $25 general or $100 missions).
In addition to one-time donations, you can also give “regularly”. You can specify weekly, bi-weekly, semi-monthly or monthly. No more forgotten cash or misplaced checkbooks!
One other note…you can also give one-time and recurring gifts using the “bill payer” functionality of your bank account, if available. At most banks, there is no charge and the bank mails the check for you.
