Not into online giving? Don't carry cash or checks anymore? The Kiosk is for you! It's a convenient and secure way to use your bank card to tithe and bring other offerings. It's easy to use and syncs up with your giving record. Want to know more? Check out these FAQs:
Why do you have a giving kiosk?
The Kiosk is simply another way to give. Some people like to go into the bank to do their banking and some people like to use ATM machines and their computer to do their banking. Like banks and other organizations, we've chosen to provide our people with options when it comes to giving at the church.
Why are kiosks even an option?
There are a number of reasons that kiosks are a valid option for those who attend New Horizon Church. Research shows that more than 25% of people who attend church do not carry cash or a checkbook with them. Second, kiosks are simple and provide an opportunity for people to give when they are ready (ever try writing a check in 30 seconds at offering time during service!?). Giving kiosks provide another opportunity for people, who might not otherwise give when led by God, to become intentional with generosity.
Doesn’t giving at the Kiosk (or online for that matter) remove the worship aspect of giving?
Worship is a matter of the heart, not methodology. 2 Corinthians 9:7 (ESV) Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. God is more concerned with where your heart is than where or how you bring the gift back to him. You can cheerfully drop it in the offering bucket, schedule it online, or tap and swipe it at the Kiosk. The Kiosk can also remove some of the pressure that a new giver may feel to respond immediately in the service during the offering time--allowing the Holy Spirit to work in his/her heart and remove that initial reluctance to respond.
Doesn’t New Horizon Church teach against credit card use?
New Horizon teaches against debt(and yes many times debt is a result of improper credit card usage), however there are disciplined givers who pay off their credit card each month and are God-honoring stewards of God’s blessings. The Kiosk accepts debit cards for those who struggle with credit card debt and discipline. If you are carrying credit card debt, please do not use a credit card for your giving. We encourage you to contact our Financial Coaching Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about becoming Financially Free!
Is the Kiosk secure?
Yes. The Kiosk follows the same Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance process as our online-giving and many of the most secure merchants in the world.
Can I still give in the service or online?
Yes! We have three ways to give at New Horizon--Drop it in the Bucket, Point & Click at newhorizonchurch.tv, or Tap and Swipe at the Kiosk.
Is the Kiosk just for giving?
Actually, the Kiosk can be used to register for events, classes, and to pay any fees associated with those connection events.
