Online Giving Update

Centenary is moving to a new kind of church record keeping solution called Realm®. It primarily serves the administrative needs of our staff, but it also offers some exciting opportunities to support the way you are involved in our church. Not only will this improve work life for our ministry staff, it will make it easier for our church family to connect with each other, keep up with what’s going on, and grow as a connected community of believers.
One aspect of Realm that we are embracing now is online giving. It is much like we had before, just with a new look. You can still securely give from our website using the same “Give” link. Please watch the video tutorial below for more information on how to navigate the new look. (Right now, we are all giving as guests.)

If you previously set up recurring giving through our online link, you don’t need to do anything! Your recurring contributions will continue as usual.
In the near future, you will hear more about other ways Realm will support Centenary's ministry and ways you can help. It is an exciting new way to do
ministry that we look forward to sharing with you soon!
