COVID-19 Chapel Update

Greetings JB MDL Family,

The Joint Base Chapel Team is committed to doing our part to maintain mission readiness and supporting you at all times and especially now through the COVID-19 pandemic. In order to be good neighbors and to help protect our most vulnerable, all chapel worship services and religious education programs will transition to virtual presentations available on Facebook at links available below. During this time of required social distancing, we encourage you to be proactive and creative in finding ways to stay socially, relationally, and spiritually connected. We will do our part and post links to such positive resources. As long as the situation allows, our chapel staff will continue office hours for emergency counseling requirements. You can reach us at: DSN, 650-HOPE (4673); (609) 754-HOPE (4673); After Hour Emergency Chapel Contact via the Command Post, 754-3935. 

For additional information, virtual worship and other resources links, go to the JBMDL Facebook pages at:  @JBMDLChapel, @JBMDLCatholicCommunity, and @JBMDLProtestantChapel

ELECTRONIC OFFERINGS - FAQ:

1. How do I know my personal/financial information is secure? Acceptiva, the host for our electronic offerings, is a  VISA/MasterCard Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) Level One Service Provider. This means that they meet or exceed all industry standards for credit card security. In addition to quarterly certification of their PCI  DSS, the site is monitored by GeoTrust (owned by Symantic, the makers of Norton Antivirus) and tested multiple times each day for possible security weaknesses.

2. How do I know my donation will go to the correct fund? Each web form is set up for a specific worship service or program. Your  Account Manager gave the Chapel Tithing Offering Fund (CTOF) Accounting Section instructions on how to credit those funds. Your  donation will be distributed as instructed by your Account Manager.

3. How much of my donation will go to the local chapel? One hundred percent (100%) of your donation is given to your chapel.  Credit card service fees are paid by the CTOF Accounting Section.

4. How do I set up a recurring donation? When filling out an online donation form, there is an option to choose how frequently your  credit card is charged. If you choose to give a recurring donation, you will be prompted to choose one of the following options:  Ongoing, After Number of Payments, After $ Amount Reached, By Specific Date (which can be a PCS date).

5. How do I modify/stop a recurring donation? Starting with the second time your card is charged, your email receipt will give  instructions and a web link you can use to modify your payment information (e.g., card expiration date, mailing address, payment  amount, frequency, etc.)

6. How do I ask for help about online donations? Contact your chaplain and/or the Account Manager. If they cannot help you, they  will contact the CTOF Accounting Section for help.

7. Will I receive a donation receipt for income tax purposes? Yes, each time your card is charged, you will receive an email receipt  confirming payment.  Keep these receipts for your tax records.
