Benefits: There are several benefits to online giving for both you and the church.
First Fruits – In Proverbs 3:9 we are taught to honor the Lord with the “First Fruits” of our labor. By setting up a recurring contribution that is scheduled to come out of your account on the day you specify you can ensure that your First Fruits are given back to God.
No Distractions - Instead of needing to worry about writing your contribution check during the service, you can be fully engaged with the worship service, knowing that you have already given your offering.
Simplicity – You will not need to remember if you gave this month or send in your offering checks when you are out of town.
Giving Records - With a push of a button you can easily track your giving history for personal accounts.
Helping RMCC – Online contributions require less processing from our administrative staff since the information is logged and deposited automatically.
Security: We care about keeping your personal information and contributions secure. That's why we work with E-zekiel and their team at FDC Financial who offer PCI Level 1 security certification, the highest level of security practices in the industry. They work with 30,000 churches and have never had one breach of their database.
PCI DSS Compliance & Security - As required by the PCI Security Council and all processing banks, Ezekiel is a Level 1 Certified PCI Compliant Service Provider. This means Ezekiel conforms to the highest set of security standards in the payment card industry. Your account managers, end users, and Ezekiel employees will never have access to the type of sensitive information that might lead to an unauthorized transaction.
SSL Transaction Security - Ezekiel uses 128 Bit SSL technology for data transactions. All personal, credit card, & bank information is submitted using 128 bit encryption. There is no stronger form of protection than this encryption and by doing this, we eliminate the possibility that someone might "tap" the line and extract your personal data from it. 128-bit SSL encryption has never been broken and according to RSL Labs, it would take a "trillion-trillion years" to crack the code using today's technology.
The Datacenter - Our datacenter upholds security measures to rigorous standards. Proximity card entry, camera-recorded server room access, and a perimeter security system all protect the datacenter facilities. These security components ensure only employed certified Server Engineers have direct access to the datacenter and individual servers. This restricted access ensures maximum security when maintaining, upgrading, and troubleshooting servers in the racks.
Protect Your Information: Keep your information safe by protecting your login information, Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see. RMCC will never call you to ask for your login information. The information will remain private and will never be given away to third parties, other than to process your scheduled contributions.
Tax Deductible: RMCC is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit tax-exempt organization. All donations are tax deductible to the extent that no goods or services were provided to you in connection with any donation, or they consisted entirely of intangible religious benefits.
