Weekend Services — Each service has a time that offering plates are passed to collect tithes and offerings.
If funds are given through checks, which contain an accurate name and address on the check, or giving is done through offering envelopes the church is able to track those gifts and issue year end giving statements. These reports can be used for tax purposes or just to track personal giving.
At each entrance into the Worship Center is a display that contains a stock of empty offering envelopes. You may also request offering envelopes be sent to your home by contacting Linda Highbarger, 316.688.4400.

Liquid Securities — Giving appreciated securities such as shares of stock or mutual fund shares instead of cash may be advantageous from a tax standpoint. The advantage to those who itemize their deductions means that they can take a deduction for the current market value of the stock (as of the date of the gift following IRS guidelines) and yet avoid all capital gains tax.
This can make a significant difference depending on the appreciation of the shares during the time you’ve owned it. Consult your tax or financial advisor before making a gift of stock.
Please contact Tom Black or his assistant Linda Highbarger at 316.688.4400 to facilitate the transfer. Many transfers can be done electronically. The church will issue a “Gift in Kind” letter documenting your gift for tax filing purposes.
