Are you on PAR?

“My church is important to me and my financial commitment to it is important.  Whether or not I’m there my church has financial obligations every week.  That is why I use PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance) to fulfill my commitment’

 

Many people use the PAR system for their church offering finding it a convenient way to take care of their regular commitments to the church.  You can participate in this program. 

 

Your account will be debited around the middle of each month and your congregation’s account credited with the amount payable from all members who participate.There is a small administrative charge which your church will pay to have this service ($6.00/yr) for each participant in the program.  A small increase in your offering if you wish, will offset this annual amount.

Your Bank statement will indicate a debit to the United Church of Canada who administer this program.  Your donation will however be to the Anglican Church of the Resurrection.
