Why We Give

Home » Donate

1 Peter 4:10 says “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.”

Christian giving is motivated by Christ’s love. Offerings are given from a heart that is thankful for God’s blessing of grace, forgiveness, care and protection.  We gladly bring our offerings so that more people may hear the good news of Jesus in Modesto and around the world. 

More and more, people are using electronic transfers to pay their monthly bills for credit cards, utilities, mortgages, and so on. St. Peter’s online contribution system brings convenience, security and privacy to your offerings for the Lord’s work at St. Peter.

St. Peter partners with Vanco Services, LLC, to be able to process online contributions. New online features give you more control over managing your own account and payment options. 

Give by Text

Another option is to give an offering through texting. Send a text to 833-948-2171 with the amount you want to donate. For example, to donate $20 for the General Fund, text “20” (without quotes) to the phone number listed above. Once the text has been sent, you will receive a registration link reply text.

​Click on the registration link and enter your contact and payment information. Then hit the “Process” button. Note that the registration process only needs to be completed with your first text donation.

After your registration is complete, you will receive a verification text as well as a receipt via email. You will also be given the option to set your initial donation to be a recurring donation or remain a one-time event. To donate via text for a new event, simply type in your donation, and you’re done!
