Melonie Park's philosophy of giving stems from a believer's obligation to be a wise steward of all the resources with which God has blessed him / her. From the way one serves God with their time and talents, to the first fruits of their labor through monetary giving - each of us is called to worship Him with our entire life. We also believe that we as the church are to be meticulous in how we handle those resources entrusted to us.

Ways to Give

Sunday Offertory

We do have a designated offering time during our service for those who prefer to worship through this process rather than the other processes listed below. However, we do not wish for anyone to give under compulsion but freely as unto the Lord.

Office Submittal

Gifts may be sent by mail or dropped off at the church office:
Melonie Park Church Contributions
6602 Indiana Ave.
Lubbock, TX 79413

Electronic Giving

Gifts can also be set up as an automatic draft from your personal bank account. If you would like to set up this process or have questions, please contact Sandy Sanders at the church office.

Stock or Mutual Fund Donations

Stock may be donated to Melonie Park Church by transferring investments to our account at Gaschen, Johnston & Associates. Please notify Paul Gaschen of any pending transfers so that we can be aware of any activity and handle it properly. If the stock is in certificate form, please send the unsigned certificate (keep a copy of certificate) to Gaschen, Johnston & Associates with a letter simply authorizing that the shares be deposited as a gift to the Melonie Park Church account sent to:

Gaschen, Johnston & Associates

Also, send a signed "stock power" separately. The stock power should be signed exactly as the name(s) appears on the certificate(s).
