Ways of Giving

All donations in support of our branch church, whatever the size, are gratefully received.  Here are three ways of making those donations:


Handwritten Check

Gifts by check can be dropped into the weekly collection plate, or you may mail them to the church at any time.  They should be made payable First Church of Christ, Scientist, Laguna Beach, and a note should be included telling us how you want the gift designated.  

Mailing address:

First Church of Christ, Scientist
635 High Drive
Laguna Beach, California 92651

Recurring Electronic Checks from your Bank (via “Bill Pay”)

Some donors may prefer to make their weekly or monthly donations via their bank’s free online Bill-Pay system.  The advantage of this method is that it is an easy, automatic way to support the church, even when you are away on vacation, which helps ensure a steady source of funding in support of church activities and operations.  

You can set up your recurring gift the next time you do your online banking.  Use the same payee and address you would use for mailing a handwritten check, indicate the amount of the recurring gift and the frequency (weekly or monthly).  When the check is received by the church, it will be processed along with the weekly collection plate.

Bequest Gifts

In addition to lifetime giving, you may want to consider including a gift to the church in your Will.  Below is suggested language to share with your attorney or advisor:

“I give, devise, bequeath [all of the residue of my estate OR an amount equal to X percent of the residue of my estate OR $________ ] to First Church of Christ, Scientist, 635 High Drive, Laguna Beach, California 92651, for its general purposes.”
