Several members have taken advantage of this method to ensure their offering is given as they planned. While there are those who use the service regularly, others like to just have it for a specific circumstance, such as while they are on vacation, and then go back to their usual offering practice. If you overlook making out your check or if you’re not here, the bills still come and those businesses expect, and rightly so, to be paid on time. Your offering ensures that funds are available when needed. Automatic contributions are processed the same way as any other automatic withdrawal from your account, such as car payments, insurance premiums, or mortgage payments. You set up with your bank when and how much is forwarded to the church. A check arrives in our mail and is counted with the offering on Sunday mornings. It’s that simple.
