Cash and check
Contributions in the form of cash and checks can be submitted in person during Sunday’s services or any time the church is open. Donation boxes are available at the entrances on each side of the sanctuary. In addition, you may drop off contributions at the church office during regular office hours or you can mail contributions to:
Meadows Baptist Church
3001 Los Rios Blvd
Plano, Texas 75074
For those who prefer to make their contributions online, Meadows has partnered with ACS Technologies and Vanco to process all contributions in a safe and secure manner. Benefits of online giving include:
- Members and guests can make one time contributions or set up recurring gifts.
- You can create an account which allows ease of recurring use though this is not required to contribute.
- Guests may contribute without setting up an account.
- You may contribute using a debit/credit card account or directly from your bank account. Meadows Baptist is charged a fee for processing these transactions. In order to ensure that Meadows Baptist and the ministries we support receive the full amount of your intended contribution, you may want to increase your giving by 2.75% to cover the cost of the fees (3.5% for AmEx).
Please note that Meadows Baptist is aware of the credit debt problem that afflicts so many and discourages the use of credit cards unless it used in a responsible and disciplined manner.
Mobile giving is available through the Church Life app made available by ACS Technologies. You may download the through the Google Play store or Apple App Store. If you have registered for online giving, you are already registered for mobile giving. If you have not registered for online giving, you may register via the Church Life app for both online and mobile giving. Mobile giving gives you the same features as online giving but from the convenience of your smart device.
