2018 YEAR-END GIVING INSTRUCTIONS

Here are a couple practical ways to give to ensure your 2018 donation receipt:

  • SUNDAY OFFERING: Give by cash or check during our offering time at Sunday service by December 30.
    For cash gifts, please use an envelope and write your name, email, and phone number.

  • SEND A CHECK: Please mail so that it arrives on or before December 31, addressed to:

    • Epicentre Church
      1539 East Howard St, Suite T101
      Pasadena, CA 91104

  • ONLINE: For online transactions, click to give by online check or one-time gift by credit card, and submit by December 31, 8:59pm..
    If you’d like to set up a convenient account to give and track your receipts, create an account and we’ll get back to you shortly to activate your new account.

    • Please note, giving by online checking account is preferred as Epicentre receives the total amount of your generous gift. Credit card companies take approximately 2% of all credit card transactions.

  • ASSETS: If you wish to donate stock or appreciated assets, please contact finance@epicentrechurch.org. If you have stocks which have appreciated in value, sound financial stewardship often means donating those stocks directly to the church rather than cashing it out and then donating the funds (this way, you get the tax deduction but don’t pay taxes on your gains). If you have questions, contact Janet Chen at janet@epicentrechurch.org.
    Assets can take 5 business days to complete, so transactions should be initiated by Friday, December 21.


Give through one-time credit card transactions.

Log-in to Give & View recurring and one-time transactions, bank withdrawal, donor records and tax receipts.

Create an account for recurring and one-time transactions, bank withdrawal, donor records and tax receipts.

A Letter from Pastor John

John Lo.jpg

Dear Epicentre,

We are thankful to the Lord for all of you and your generous hearts towards Kingdom work!

Through your tithes and offerings in 2018, we've been able to sow:

  • $187,000 into ministries in Pasadena, Los Angeles, Tijuana, and beyond. We've blessed those affected by hurricanes and fires, sown into church-planting movements in Southeast Asia

  • another $193,000 to invest in and provide infrastructural support for our missionaries

As we have sown in faith, we are believing by faith that God will provide for our needs.

The year-end need for 2018 is $475,000. Because 20% of our annual revenue comes in the month of December, this amount is only slightly higher than what was forecasted. This variance is in part due to termination packages offered to staff who transitioned as part of the shift of our operating system from staff doing the ministry to staff empowering and supporting Epicentre people to do the ministry.

Please prayerfully consider how you might give to help us close the gap for 2018.

Thank you for considering a gift of generosity towards Epicentre and growing God’s work!

Sincerely,

John Lo
Lead Pastor Epicentre Church Pasadena
