It’s important that you remember that your offerings matter more now than ever! We are in no way shutting down ministry here at Good Shepherd just because we can’t publicly gather. In fact, there is even more work than usual for our staff in this time of crisis.
We also know that some of our members will lose a portion of their income in these days, with a resulting decrease in giving. So it’s extremely important that you continue to give generously to the work of the church, as you are able. Here’s how:
Of course, you’re always welcome to drop your offering envelope off at the church office. The church office remains open from 8 a.m. to noon each day.
You may also mail your offering to the church:
Good Shepherd Lutheran Church
PO Box 164
Cass City, MI 48726
Thanking God for His timing, you may remember that Good Shepherd just completed our enrollment in the electronic giving service, as announced in January. To utilize this service, either click the button below, or text (989) 308-4499 and follow the link that you then receive.
When you first give your gift, you’ll need to create an account. Simply follow these steps to create your account.
(1) Visit the site and select the tab labelled “Sign In”. Once you’re there, click the blue “Register for an Account” link at the bottom of the page.
(2) Fill out your personal information. You’ll need to list either an email address or a phone number that can receive text messages so that you can securely log into your account in the future. Then, click the blue “Register” button.
(3) You’re now logged into your Kindred Giving account. In the top right hand corner of the page, click the circle with your initials in it (see Anna’s example below). This will open up a dropdown menu. Click “My Account”.
(4) On the left side of the screen will be a menu starting with “My Account”. Select “Payment Methods”, then add the payment method you would like to use for your offerings. Kindred Giving accepts both direct deposits from your bank account and payments made with a credit card (Visa, Discover, American Express and Mastercard are accepted). Then click the blue save button at the bottom of the screen. You can add a new form of payment or delete an outdated form at any time.
After that, giving a gift is as easy as hitting the button, signing in, and submitting your offering!
If you run into any problems or questions, call the church office at (989) 872-2770, and Amy will call you back to help you out.
