Generous donations of Evangel’s congregation, alumni, and supporters meet physical and spiritual needs of hundreds of people who attend Evangel and the community at large. First, Evangel is committed to exceeding the tithe in support of missions outside of the local church. After that, donations pay staff salaries, facility expenses, and support of local church ministries. Surpluses go to a restricted fund for capital improvements and expansion. Expenses are cut to avoid deficits. Evangel has no debt. Members review the church budget each quarter.

Setting up recurring donations helps church finances tremendously as we meet regular financial obligations.
Check or Cash
And as always, gifts of cash or checks payable to Evangel Church are received in the offering plates on Sunday mornings, or you can mail checks to:
1114 College Ave.,
Houghton, MI 49931.
We also accept charitable donations of stocks. Depending on your marginal bracket and if you itemize your deductions, a donation of stocks could provide further tax advantages by allowing you to deduct the entire fair market value of the donation without having to recognize the capital gain. After the stocks have been transferred to Evangel, we will liquidate the stocks for cash.
