BHPC’s Stewardship theme – Abundant Blessing, Abundant Gratitude, Abundant Giving – continues to frame the life our church.  Even during this time when we cannot gather in person, we hope that each of you can discern how God continues to shower his blessings on us all – individually and as a church family – and in gratitude for those blessings, give abundantly to support God’s work at BHPC.

Now more than ever, we want to ensure that everyone is aware of the many methods of giving that are available, whether you are a long-time BHPC member, a virtual visitor, or looking to simplify your giving habits.  So, here is a comprehensive list of the ways you can give to BHPC.

Online: Give immediately using your credit/debit card. All methods of online giving will direct you to Realm, BHPC’s virtual connection tool, where you can securely enter any giving amount; designate which “fund” should receive your donation (e.g., “General Giving,” the “Annual Pledge” or even the “Easter Fund”); and choose whether to make a one-time donation or a recurring donation.  For all online giving, you will need a credit or debit card.  There are three methods of online giving:

  • The “Give Now” Button:  Simply click the red “Give Now” button found on the top right corner of the BHPC website and you will be directed to Realm.
  • Log into Realm via the App or from your computer and choose the “Giving” option.
  • Text “BHPC” space dollar amount (ex. “BHPC 150” for a $150 gift) to 73256 and follow the link.

Check: You can mail a check to Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church, or you can set up automated bill payment through your bank and the bank will mail a check to the church at a frequency and amount you choose.  For all checks, you can indicate a special designation by indicating that in the memo field; gifts without a designation will be directed to general giving.

Please make all checks payable to “Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church” and send checks to:

 

Bradley Hills Presbyterian Church

6601 Bradley Blvd.

Bethesda, MD  20817
