Consider electronic giving as a way to automate your annual giving. Electronic giving offers convenience for members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our church. Direct Debit Giving automatically transfers funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account. And electronic giving offers a positive impact on the environment. An enormous amount of natural resources are consumed in the production, transportation, processing, and disposal of paper checks. The trend toward electronic payments has produced more than a 50% decline in check use since 2000.
As you consider the payment method you use to make your regular offering, we hope that you will think about the unique connection between financial stewardship and environmental stewardship.
