Ways to Give at Swan Lake

Thank you for considering giving to Swan Lake Evangelical Free Church. Our prayer is that every single dollar we receive will be used to further the mission God has placed in our hearts of Loving God passionately by helping people find and follow Jesus Christ starting in our local community reaching to the ends of the earth!

Here are a few options as you consider giving:

1. Conventional Check or Cash

Place your gift in the offering plate during the worship service, drop it by the office, or mail it to:

Swan Lake Evangelical Free Church
P.O. Box 196, Cottonwood, Minnesota 56229

2. Online Giving (Debit, Credit, or PushPay)

a. Online Bill Pay through your own bank. Log into your bank’s website and set up SLEFC as a payee, and your bank will mail a check to the church in the requested amount by the requested date.

 b. Your debit card or credit card. We offer online giving through PushPay using your debit or credit card. Click here to use PushPay. Please note, SLEFC pays a processing fee for PushPay gifts.

PushPay to Church Center Transition

We are currently in the process of changing our online giving from PushPay to Church Center as we will save roughly $200 per month. Please take a moment to switch your recurring online giving from PushPay to Church Center or sign up by clicking here. Please note that we will stop using PushPay on October 31, 2019.

On the first Sunday of every month, in addition to our regular giving, we encourage giving to our Benevolence Fund. Those funds are then used to meet the varied needs of individuals and families in the church and community as they arise. Sometimes needs arise that we are unaware of. If you would like to make our Elders aware of a situation that we could potentially assist with, please fill out the attached Benevolence Request or Recommendation Form and give it to one of the Elders.

Gregoire Benevolence

If you would like to give to the Gregoire Family during these days to assist with their expenses, please do so using our Benevolence Fund. You can include a note recommending that it be given to the Gregoire Family. If you write a check, please do not write Gregoire Family on the check for tax purposes. We will make every effort to use the funds that are received for expenses incurred by the Gregoire Family. 

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.
— 2 Corinthians 8:9, ESV
