Joyful Response® Program


The Joyful Response* program allows you to have your regular donation deducted directly from your checking or savings account. Joyful Response is an automated giving program designed to help you conveniently and consistently give to Mount Olive. Through Joyful Response, your gifts are made through a pre-authorized withdrawal from your bank account. You determine the frequency of your automatic gift—weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, or just one time. The option is yours. You also select when the donation will come from your account. Your gift is deposited into Mount Olive’s bank account on the same day it is withdrawn from your account—at no cost to you or Mount Olive. For more info contact the Church Office or the Director of Stewardship.


Joyful Response is a reliable, safe way to move your stewardship plan into action. It allows you to share your contributions through planned giving and activates your generosity into ongoing stewardship. Because your contribution is given consistently, you won’t need to play “catch-up” at year-end or worry about forgotten checkbooks or missed Sunday offerings. But you’re not the only one that benefits. Mount Olive benefits from steady, more predictable revenue throughout the year, more efficient bookkeeping, and greater confidence in meeting its financial commitments.

Joyful Response is a free stewardship service for LCMS congregations, schools and registered service organizations. It is made available by Lutheran Church Extension Fund, a Lutheran Church-Missouri Synod (LCMS) based financial institution where your investments help the LCMS fulfill the Great Commission.
