Building and serving community in Christ’s name.East Church’s Mission Statement
You can support the mission and ministry of East Church
We offer three easy online options to make a financial contribution to East Church and thereby support our ability to continue our local and global mission initiatives. One-time and recurring donations are options.
Choose which platform you are most familiar and comfortable with.
And… thank you!
*VenmoSupport East Church using Venmo
Maybe the quickest and easiest option if you have and are familiar with a Venmo account.
(Note: if you are a pledging member of East Church, donating through Venmo will not be credited toward your pledge; it’s considered “loose offering.” Use the Vanco option, below, if you have a pledge on record and wish to have your donation applied toward that pledge.)
* PayPalSupport East Church using PayPal
A safe and secure platform which many have accounts with, but you can use a credit card if you don’t have a personal PayPal account.
(Note: if you are a pledging member of East Church, donating through PayPal will not be credited toward your pledge; it’s considered “loose offering.” Use the Vanco option, below, if you have a pledge on record and wish to have your donation applied toward that pledge.)

The button in this section will take you to a form which you can use to support the mission of East Congregational Church financially, through an online contribution.
If you are a member of, or a regular contributor to, East Church you may wish to create a Profile to make future contributions easier. However, creating a Profile is not required to donate.
Note for those who have an existing Pledge with East Church and wish to pay towards that Pledge online: Each pledging unit (family) should set up only one profile, using one consistent email address, so all their donations can be captured automatically for reporting purposes.
You may wish to designate a specific area of ministry to which you would like your donation to apply. Otherwise, simply choose “Church Support.” Note that some specific funds have a text field next to the dollar amount, allowing you to enter notes or comments to further clarify the intention of your contribution.
The joy of online giving through our East Church website is that you can make a one-time or recurring gift, or fulfill your pledge at any time. Please Note: your initial pledge, that greatly assists us in creating our annual Mission Spending Plan (also known as the church budget), still needs to be made with a physical pledge card shared with the Stewardship Committee. Setting up a recurring payment is a convenient mechanism to fulfill your pledge, but our Finance team can’t see that you have set up a recurring payment plan, and thus can’t anticipate that for budgeting unless you explicitly inform them via a pledge card.
Thank you for your support of East Congregational Church and its many missions and ministries.
