We have had several inquiries about receiving automatic
contributions for offerings. Some of our members have
decided to use this method to schedule their weekly,
semi-weekly, monthly, etc., offerings. One member is
using automatic withdrawal so that she isn’t bothered
writing a check every week. Another couple uses this
method when they are out of the area. They realize the
importance of regular giving. 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. It is 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.

Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, “children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.” Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain. — Philippians 2:14-16 (NIV)
