Ways to Give

...just as the Son of Man [Jesus] did not come to be served, but to serve... (Matthew 20:28)

Giving is a fundamental part of the Christian life. Through the gifts of our time, resources, skills and passions we come to know the giving Spirit of God.  God is the greatest giver!  Read more about "Why Give?" here.

In Person Donation / Offering

Giving is an act of worship. God is worthy!  Give either during the service with cash or a check placed in the offering plate as it is passed.  Alternatively, you can give using our "kiosk" tablet in the Lobby (Narthex) near the Saron office door.

Give Online

You can set up a one-time or recurring donation on our Online Giving page. 

Our online donations are handled securely via ChurchTeams.

Through Online Banking

Another option is, if you already use an online bill pay service through your own bank, most banks will allow you to set up a recurring payment to Saron, and many of them do not charge for that service.

Amazon Smile

Do you shop at Amazon?  Amazon Smile is a program that will, at no cost to you, donate 5% of your purchases to Saron.  Click here to get started.

Walk of Faith

A brick walkway in the front garden of the church building is available in support of Saron and to remember someone or something significant in your life.  Many people have created a paver to honor a birth or death or to commemorate an anniversary or wedding date. People who return to Big Lake for a visit like to know they have a special "place" created just for their memories.  For more information on the Walk of Faith and how to have your personalized brick added to the walkway, contact the church office.

Living Memorial

Do you want to make a gift in honor of someone who has passed away? There is a commemorative book in the Narthex for memorial messages. Contact the church office for more information.

Leave a Legacy

If you are interested in leaving a gift in your will, please contact the church office for information on our endowment fund.


Time is precious.  When giving of your time comes from your heart -- either out of passion for a cause or compassion for someone else -- the impact is powerful.  Step into a powerful life through any of the ministries of Saron or through the needs/opportunities available on our Volunteer page.
