International Lutheran Church is a community of Christian believers who have come together here in Seoul for the purpose of worshiping Christ and reaching out to others in service to Him. Tithes and offerings from the many present and alumni members are what make this mission possible. Thank you for your support!
There are three usual ways of giving at ILC.
1. The Offering Plate
The primary way for us to receive donations is through the Sunday morning worship offering. You may make offerings in Korean won, in U.S. dollars, or through a U.S. check.
2. Online or ATM Transfer
It is convenient and safe to make a direct transfer from one account to another. You may give to ILC at Citibank account number 260-00497-243-01.
3. The Mission Fund for ILC's Pastor
For those who wish to give directly from a U.S.-based bank account or credit card, or those who wish to make use of U.S. tax-deductible giving, you may give towards the mission fund which supports our pastor through The Lutheran Church—Missouri Synod (LCMS).
By writing your name on the offering envelope (option 1), or by indicating your name on an online or ATM transfer (option 2), your offering will be recorded for your personal annual tax statement to use within Korea. These statements are only issued from our office upon request, as per Korean tax regulation. Simply contact the ILC office in January to request your copy.
By giving to the mission fund (option 3), your gift is U.S. tax-deductible and a tax receipt will be issued by the LCMS.
