"One person gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty."
When we give, it acknowledges God as the giver of everything we have, reflects our trust that He will continue to provide for us, and allows us to be a part of His work here on earth. It’s something we do with joy.
We are a generous community here at South Side. We strive to be leaders of generosity when it comes to giving towards Gospel efforts.

Online Giving FAQ
Why give online?
Online giving is an easy way to remember to give back to God what is already His in the first place. Online giving takes the worry about remember to give when you are worshiping at church, and it allows us to give you a perfect giving statement at the end of the year for tax purposes.
Is your online giving secure?
Our online giving is hosted through Stewardship Technologies. This company is certified and license to protect your information from hackers and does everything in their power to protect your information. This company has been trusted by many companies, organization, and churches, including these: Campus Crusade for Christ, FamilyLife, Full Gospel Baptist Fellowship, Good Steward Books, Promise Keepers, Willow Creek Association, and Wycliffe Bible Translators.
Can I give one time without setting up an account?
Yes, you most certainly can! When you give as a "guest," we still ask for at least your last name and your address. We do this so that we can send you giving report at the end of the year for tax purposes.
What are the benefits of giving online instead of in person?
- 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.
- Simplicity: You will not need to remember if you gave this month or sent in your offering checks when you are out of town.
- Security: Online giving is more secure than giving with a check, in that, an electronic gift can’t be lost or stolen.
What type of payments do you take?
We take all major credit cards (besides American Express) and ACH bank transfers—whatever you are most comfortable with choosing.
Will I receive a giving statement at the end of the year?
Yes, you will!
What's the easiest way to manage my online giving?

Those links will take you directly to the app in your phone's app store. You can also search "eGiving Mobile" in the search bar. The app is created by "Stewardship Technology, Inc."
