Give

Thank you for helping us switch to our new online contribution system!  Our goal is to have all Giving that is currently running on our other platform moved over to our new Tithe.ly platform. We think you will find the new system very easy to work with. Instructions for switching your online gifts to Tithe.ly here.

Give by Text

Simply send text the word give to 956-275-7659 to get started. This phone number is specific to TLGCS.

Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register. Click on that link and enter your cardholder name and credit/debit card information.

Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt via email. For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically.  

Giving Opportunities

Undesignated Giving

Support the ministries and new mission starts of the Gulf Coast Synod and beyond.

Designated Giving

  • Bishop’s Discretionary – Support emergencies, leaders in crisis, congregations in need, or other unforeseen expenses.
  • Campus Ministry – We are currently supporting campus ministries in Houston, Brazos Valley, and Louisiana.
    • Please note in the memo line which campus you would like support.
  • Companion Synods
    • Central African Republic – We are committed to leadership development in partnership with the Evangelical Lutheran Church of the Central African Republic (EEL-RCA). The church is growing faster in Africa than anywhere else in the world, yet its resources remain scarce.
    • Peru – The Peruvian Evangelical Lutheran Church (ILEP) does not shy away from announcing God’s word and denouncing injustice when and where needed. ILEP responds prophetically to the many injustices that impact impoverished, mostly forgotten, Peruvians.
  • Disaster – Help us prepare for and respond to natural disasters both within our synod and globally.
  • ELCA World Hunger – Creatively and courageously working toward a just world where all are fed.
  • LEAD – The synod gave birth to this leadership organization that equips leaders and churches with coaches, immersions, and resources.
  • Live On (Endowment Fund) – This is a mission outreach fund for use within our synod. Income earned on the permanent investment is granted in May and November to those who apply and qualify for grants.
  • Lutherhill – Our summer camp and year-round retreat center is a great place for youth and adults to explore God’s world and word.
  • Missionaries – ELCA missionaries need your prayers, support, and gifts to help them succeed in their work throughout the world.
  • New Missions – We are committed to investing in new and renewing missions, congregations, and spiritual communities.
