Our ultimate goal in giving is to please Him.
OTHER WAYS TO GIVE:
In Service: Simply place cash or checks in the offering during the weekend service. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or offering envelope, so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes. For your convenience, there is also a locked and secure offering box located inside the auditorium.
By mail: Mail your donation to 2710 North Mason Road #145, Katy, Texas 77449. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.

WHY SHOULD I GIVE ONLINE?
You will find The Waters Church's online giving system is comfortable, familiar and very easy to use. Regardless of age or computer knowledge, this system is user-friendly and easy to track.
Simplify your monthly tithe and other contributions by setting up an account to automatically withdraw your contributions each month from your credit card, checking or savings account. You can modify your account, track your giving anytime, and download your giving statement for your personal record-keeping.
Online giving is actually more secure than checks or cash. As soon as you click the link above you enter a secure, fire-wall protected server that is not available to the public. From there, your gift is electronically transferred directly to The Waters Church's bank and the information about your transfer is sent directly to The Waters Church's internal records.
SECURITY OF YOUR FINANCIAL INFORMATION AT THE WATERS CHURCH
We use an online database called Planning Center. Their system allows us to provide access to your contribution records and allows you to make donations online. They provide all of the security for the system. This system is used by churches throughout the country and has been fully tested by them. There are two aspects of security related to the system.
First, Planning Center provides data security using the latest security technology. The following statement is from their security documentation: "[the system] utilizes the most current encryption technology to maintain the security of your data. Every parameter passed in the hyperlinks is fully encrypted. Additionally, the Login module handles passwords using what is known in technical terms as salted hash. In laymen’s terms, this means it would take 50 computers (running constantly) continuously presenting password combinations four years to discover the password."
The second aspect of security relates to account creation. When you first create a new account in the system, you will be able to donate immediately, but you will not have access to any previous contribution information. Before that can happen, we must manually link your previous information to the account you created. In order to verify the authenticity of the account request, we will ensure that all of your data matches our current records (e.g., address, phone number, and email address). If there is any question, we will contact you via email before creating the link.
Since this is a manual process, we will perform these steps approximately once a week, but if you would like to speed up this process, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. When you create your account, you will determine your own login id and password. If you forget your login ID or password, you can have the system email it to you by entering the email address that you used when you created your account. If you need help or cannot remember the email address you used, you can contact us at email@example.com. You can also change your password at any time.
Please help us keep your information safe by protecting your login information. Access to sensitive personal and financial information can be gained by letting someone else use your account or by leaving the information for someone else to see.
The Waters Church will never call you to ask for your login information.
