Q: How can I prevent someone else from accessing my account?
The system will log you out automatically after approximately 60 minutes of inactivity. However, you should log out of your account to make sure your account information is not accessible by other users of your computer. As with any online payment activity, we suggest that in addition to logging out of your account, you also close your internet browser. You can then open a new browser session for any other internet activity.
In order to give online, you must first create a login and secured account in LifeBridge Central. This easy and secure process allows you to give through an automatic electronic debit from your checking account, or using a debit or credit card (Visa, Master Card, Discover, and American Express). We do not encourage incurring debt on credit cards to give to the church. If you ‘do’ use your credit card, please be sure to pay the entire amount of your monthly giving each month.
