Giving FAQ’s

At Mosaic Church we believe that God owns everything and He provides according to His will and plan.  We encourage those who call Mosaic their home to live simply and live generously which frees you up to live sacrificially.  Through giving regularly, sacrificially, and joyfully, we remind ourselves, and demonstrate to others the truth of the gospel of Christ – that the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most generous gift ever given.  When we give as Christ gave, we joyfully become poor for the sake of others, we recognize Christ as supreme in our lives, we place reliance on him to provide our needs, and we guard our hearts by beginning to remove the idol of money and consumerism. 

How do I give to Mosaic?

There are several ways to worship through giving at Mosaic Church.

Option 1: Weekend Worship Gatherings

At each gathering, we have clearly marked TITHE boxes near the back of our worship space. We don’t pass a bucket or fancy offering plates because we believe that choosing to do this separately makes it a more intentional act of submission, rather than a random act of obligation. If you are someone who likes to give with cash and would like a tax-receipt at the end of the year from Mosaic, you can give via cash envelopes found near the TITHE boxes.

Option 2: Online Bill Pay

This is a good option because there is no fee and you can schedule it to happen automatically. Use your bank’s bill pay feature to set up recurring donations at no charge to Mosaic Church or you. Your banks online system should be able to guide you through this process.  Donations should be made payable to:

Mosaic Church (campus name)
14175 West Colonial Drive
Winter Garden, FL 34787

Option 3: Online giving via check or debit card

We accept credit and debit cards for the simple convenience of our donors. We do not encourage credit purchases or debt as a lifestyle.  If you are currently in debt, or have had a history of debt problems, please do not use your credit card to give to Mosaic Church.

If you have an MCB account, make a donation via that platform as it makes it easier for accounting and tax purposes.

  • Once in MCB, you will find the “Give” option on the left side of the screen in the menu.
  • You will be able to choose a one-time gift or set up a recurring donation.
  • You will also be able to select what fund or campus you’d like to donate toward. It is very important to our accounting team that your giving be tied to your home campus.
  • This process is 100% secure.

If Mosaic is not your church home and you do not have an MCB account, but you would like to support our mission and vision, you can make a donation via our public giving page.

Option 4: Tithe Kiosk at the Winter Garden Campus

We have a kiosk for giving at the Winter Garden Campus where you can use your debit or credit card to give.  This makes giving accessible to those of you who use cards rather than checks or cash.  We do want to be clear that we are not encouraging anyone to use this option in such a way that would cause cause debt.

Option 5: Text to Give

If you would like to ‘text to give,’ here are the simple steps to follow.  Text the word give, a space, and the number of the amount you’d like to give without a dollar sign.  (Ex.  ‘Give 100’)  Send the text to 855-910-7100.  The first time you do this, you’ll get a text back instructing you to sign-in to your account or create a new one.  If the phone number you text from is in MCB, it will pre-fill your information.  If not, you’ll fill it in.  You’ll then input your bank or credit card information.  You’ll confirm by texting ‘Y’ back.  After your first time, you’ll only have to text back a ‘Y’ to confirm the amount you’d like to give.

How can I track my giving?

Mosaic’s Finance Team utilizes our online account called MCB (Mosaic Community Builder) to manage all donations.  You can log into your account on MCB to view your giving history and generate a giving statement at any time.  To do so:

  • Log into your MCB account.
  • Click on Give tab in the menu at the top of the screen.
  • Click on the “My Giving Statements” link on the side of the screen.
  • Follow the directions in the form found there.
  • You can also choose to view just you, you & your spouse, or you & your household.

We make every attempt to have the weekend offering processed by Monday or Tuesday, but occasionally it takes longer (especially when there is a holiday). If you don’t see a gift hit your account, give it a week and then reach out to Peggy Bush.

Why Should I Give?

At Mosaic Church we believe that everything we see and everything we have is owned by God and He provides according to His will and plan.  (1 Chronicles 29.10-19, Psalm 24.1-2, Psalm 50.10-11)

At Mosaic Church we encourage each Christ-Follower to prayerfully consider and evaluate what God the Father, through the Spirit, is calling them to give.  Giving generously should be an active and intentional piece of our regular worship and service to our King.  Our aim is to be Christlike in our generosity – ‘who although He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, so that we by His poverty might become rich’. The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the most generous gift ever given.  When this Gospel takes root in our lives, we gladly become poor, giving sacrificially of our lives to enrich the lives of others.  In so doing, we remind ourselves, and demonstrate to others the great generosity of our abundantly good God. (2. Corinthians 8.9-10, 2 Corinthians 9.7).

Additionally we see in scripture numerous teaching for each believer in regards to money.  Scripture provides encouragement so that we can:

  • Give cheerfully and joyfully – demonstrating an overflowing of love for our God (2 Corinthians 9.7)
  • Give our first fruits – meaning we give of our best and also that we give so that we rely on God to provide the remainder of our needs (Deuteronomy 26.2, Proverbs 3.9)
  • Give humbly – not looking for praise but seeking eternal rewards. (Matthew 6.2)
  • Give regularly – to remind ourselves of His provision to us continually.   (1 Corinthians 16.2)
  • Give sacrificially – so we reflect the way Christ gave to us.  (2 Corinthians 8.9-10)

In addition to encouraging us, Scripture warns us of the many pitfalls of money:

  • Money, or riches, can easily become an idol.  We can to easily rely on our resources to feel secure or provide an identity for us.  The lure of money attracts us in a variety of ways – whether it is the perceived safety net it provides, the power it can bring, or the material things it can buy.  (Matthew 6.19-24, Luke 16.10-13, 1 Timothy 6.10, Ecclesiastes 5.10-12)
  • How we practically manage, spend, give or save our money can potentially expose these idols and help break their hold over our hearts.  (Luke 16.10-13)

We believe that as Christ-followers we are called to financially support our local Church & Elders.  In addition, God calls us to demonstrate mercy & compassion through giving aimed at caring for widows and orphans, poor and needy and foreigner in our community.  (2 Chronicles 31.4, Deuteronomy 26.12, 1 Corinthians 9.8-14, 1 Timothy 5.17-18, Luke 8.1-3, Isaiah 58.6-12, Deuteronomy 26.12, 2 Corinthians 8-9)
