Throughout November, we've heard about the ways the Gospel has been shared through online worship during the pandemic; by the equipping of disciples through Memphis City Seminary; and across the globe at a virtual pastoral training event hosted by the China Partnership.
While all else in this world may be unreliable, our hope is in the undeniable reality that we are part of a much greater story—God’s story! Below, watch the videos again to be reminded about how the Lord has used our resources in unique ways.
Sunday, November 22, is Commitment Sunday, the day each year when we submit our General Fund giving intentions for the coming year. Please prayerfully consider how you will share your resources to further the kingdom.

Retell the Gospel: A Partnership in China
Despite persecution and pandemic, the Church in China is not slowing down.
As you think about how the Gospel has transformed your own story, please consider how you can minister God’s word to others by:
- engaging with your resources
- connecting with your time and with your prayers
- growing in your relationship with Christ
- committing to being a viable part of God’s Kingdom
Q: Where does my gift go?
A: When you give, you have the option of three different funds, the General Fund, which goes towards the operating budget of 2PC, the World Missions offering, which goes to support our missionaries and mission partners around the world, and Deeply Rooted, which is our capital campaign for the maintenance and improvement of our campus.
Q: Why are there processing fees?
A: Processing payments have always had fees involved. Anytime you pay online or by credit card at a store or restaurant or anywhere, the payment processors and credit card companies take a fee or percentage. While we gladly pay the fees for the added convenience and security online giving offers our donors, our new giving platform gives donors an opportunity to choose to increase their donation to cover these fees associated with processing their gift.
The processing fee is not new, it is just visible for the first time and it is by no means required for you to pay it.
Q: What if I missed the deadline to update my recurring gift?
A: You can still update your recurring gift by clicking "Stop Recurring Giving" at the bottom of the screen, and then using the Give Online button to re-establish your scheduled gift.
Q: How do I get my statement and see my giving history and manage my account?
A: Click Give Online and login. Once there, you will see "Your Account" at the top right of the screen. On that menu are the options to manage your account.
Q: What is my username and password?
A: If you previously had a recurring gift or if you logged in to register for an event, it will be the email address and password you used then. If you are still not sure, when you get to the giving page you still have three options:
- Click "Forgot your Password?" at the bottom of the login page to have your password reset.
- Click"Log in with Phone Number" to have a code sent to you by text
- Click "Sign Up" and create an account, once you enter your gift, we will be able to match you to your existing record in the database.
