JOY is committed to model the life of Jesus in our words and actions both within and outside our community. We have the privilege of partnering with God in restoring hope in a broken world and furthering His kingdom work through our service and financial giving.
WAYS TO GIVE
Make a safe and secure one-time or recurring gift online or by using The JOY App. JOY's new online giving platform gives you an alternative to writing physical checks in order to provide a simple giving experience and to encourage generosity.
JOY pays credit card processing fees starting at a standard 2.3% plus a flat $0.30 per transaction fee, but rates automatically decline towards 1.9% as giving increases. Direct bank debit methods like ACH and eCheck have a rate of 1%, but there is no separate transaction fee for ACH.
CASH OR CHECK
- Sunday services: Envelopes for cash gifts and checks are available for your convenience. Simply drop this envelope in the offering basket during service. Checks should be made out to "Joy Christian Fellowship."
- By mail: Another great option is setting up recurring payments through your banking institution via online bill pay service, which many banks offer for free. Mail your donations directly to the church office at: Joy Christian Fellowship, 52 W. Ivy Lane, Englewood, NJ 07631.
