$ Our Church’s New Mobile App is Here! $ We’re excited to announce Good Hope Lutheran Church has upgraded our mobile app! Vanco, our eGiving provider, has launched an updated mobile app called Vanco Mobile to replace GivePlus Mobile. You can download the Vanco Mobile Faith Engagement app for free from the App Store or Google Play. From there, you can make a onetime donation or set up recurring giving right through the app. Just select your fund and amount, enter a payment method and complete the donation. The “Cover Processing Fees” feature is currently not an option, but will be soon to help offset the cost for the church. Please download Vanco Mobile by September 30. Vanco will be retiring GivePlus Mobile after this date.
If you have questions or need assistance with our new mobile app, please stop by the church office or call us at 419-562-0286.
