Giving

Give Online

Give a one-time gift, or schedule recurring giving using your checking account, debit or credit card.

Walnut Hills has new online giving pages. Our online gifts are still managed through the same system but with a new look and feel. The main change combines the ability to make one-time and recurring gifts on a single page. We also updated the email messages  you will receive from the church that document changes made via online giving.

Church Endowment Fund

Frequently Asked Questions

FAQs

Which fund should I pick?

Online gifts can be designated towards the Budget or towards one or more Special Giving funds. For gifts to the budget, 6% will be sent to the Baptist General Association of Virginia (BGAV) and the 1% for the Peninsula Baptist Association for cooperative mission work in Virginia and beyond. The church adjusts these percentages as part of our annual budget preparation with input from the church through votes at business meetings. Cooperative giving is a hallmark of a Baptist church.

Walnut Hills provides four different giving plans so that church members can designate how the missions component of the gift is used at the state level. These plans are known as World Missions (WM) 1, 2, 3 and 4. Church members designate their desired plan via the annual budget pledge cards, a notation on an offering envelope or notifying our Financial Secretary. Gifts received in the  offering plates are allocated to the proper fund by our Financial Secretary.

To ensure that your online gift is credited properly, with regard to the three BGAV giving plans, please select the proper Budget fund from the options below when you make an online gift. For greater detail on these plans, visit www.bgav.org.

  • Budget (WM1) – 66% of Cooperative Missions dollars will support Kingdom Advance Virginia Missions and Ministries. This includes 2% for Partnership Missions. 34% of Cooperative Mission dollars will support world mission causes according to the SBC budget.
  • Budget (WM2) – 72% of Cooperative Missions dollars will support Kingdom Advance Virginia Missions and Ministries. This includes 2% for Partnership Missions. 28% of Cooperative Mission dollars will be distributed as voted by the BGAV at their annual meeting. Items her include a combination of Virginia, SBC and CBF ministries.
  • Budget (WM3) – 72% of Cooperative Missions dollars will support Kingdom Advance Virginia Missions and Ministries. This includes 2% for Partnership Missions. 28% of Cooperative Mission dollars will support world mission causes according to the CBF budget. (While BGAV no longer supports this option, we are duplicating it internally.)
  • Budget 4 (WM4) – 100% of Cooperative Missions dollars will support Virginia Missions and Ministries. All of the funds forwarded to BGAV under this plan will be used for BGAV missions and ministries.
  • Designated gifts can be provided by selecting the proper fund from the list available via the Special Giving Funds drop down on the Online Giving page. This allows gifts as a Memorial, Missions Emphasis (Lottie Moon, Alma Hunt), etc.
Can I setup an automatic recurring gift?

Yes, recurring online gifts to the church can help you make giving a priority in your budget. When establishing a recurring gift, you can specify the donation amount and frequency of your gift. Recurring gifts can be managed via your TouchPoint account.

Benefits of online giving for the church?

Online giving saves the church time and energy in receiving, recording and depositing your gift. Recurring gifts also help “level out” dips in giving that may occur due to vacations, bad weather and other obligations that may prevent you from giving.

Online giving vs. giving during the offering.
Online giving will not replace the traditional offering in our worship service. Instead, it is simply an additional way to give. For many, giving is an act of worship that has always occurred in the midst of a worship service.  Some members, due to their ministry role (choir, nursery, etc) already give outside of the worship service, while others may give via their bank’s online bill pay feature. Online giving offers a new way of expressing your desire to share your resources for God’s kingdom.

Endowment

The Endowment Fund of Walnut Hills Baptist Church was established as a way to provide a permanent, perpetual source of funds to strengthen the mission and ministry of God’s work through our church fellowship. Contributions to the Endowment Fund are intended to remain in the fund in perpetuity, while the earnings provide income distributions to the ministries of our church and capital improvements to our campus. As we do not know all the specific needs of future generations, we encourage gifts that are unrestricted as this allows future congregations to determine the ministry needs.
