At City Lights we believe that the Bible calls Christians to give a tithe, or a tenth of our income back to God to support the local church we are apart of, and therefore we do not ask visitors to give money to the church. Giving should be done as worship, with recognition of God's provision for us, understanding that we live in total dependence on Him for all that we have. Offerings are given above and beyond the Biblical requirement of the tithe and are brought as worship to God to further support His mission through the church.
1) PAY WITH A CHECK
The best method is simply to write a check and give when the offering is taken before worship during our Sunday services, or by mailing it into the City Lights Church office. This way you can physically offer your tithe to God as worship each month.
The church's address for mailing your check is:
8665 St. Charles Rock Road
St. Louis, MO 63114
2) ONLINE BILL-PAY
For an even easier option than writing a check, you may be able to take advantage of setting your giving up as a ‘bill’ with your bank. The bank will print and mail a check to the church on your behalf. Below are some links to widely used banks and their billing systems.
Online bill-pay registration links:
Bank of America bill-pay, Chase bill-pay, Wells Fargo bill-pay, US Bank bill-pay
3) ONLINE WITH TITHE.LY
The last option is giving through Tithe.ly on your mobile phone or by clicking the 'give' buttons on this page. This is a convenient way to give your tithe, but there is a small fee associated with the transaction. So that all your tithe goes to God through the local church it is being given, Tithe.ly has added a small check-box that allows the giver to cover the convenience fee.
