PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance)
Joining the PAR program is a great way to support St. Paul ‘s since your contribution arrives regularly and can be relied upon by the church treasurer, even if you personally miss a few Sundays! Your PAR contributions are from your chequing account.
Since many of St. Paul ‘s members use their bank cards and credit cards to make purchases and do their banking on-line, PAR is also the most convenient for us. Many of us no longer use cheques or have much cash available to put into the offering envelope during worship. The United Church of Canada administers the PAR giving plan.
Fill Out PAR Form
To take advantage of this convenient method of giving, PAR Registration Form 2016, contact 905.878.8895 ext. 21 or firstname.lastname@example.org and the PAR form will be sent to you. Please fill it out, then bring it on Sunday and place it on the offering plate, or mail it to St. Paul’s United Church, 123 Main Street East, Milton, ON L9T 1N4. Forms received after the tenth of the month will be processed in the following month.
Once your authorization has been received, your contributions to St. Paul ‘s will become automatic, however, you will reserve the right to change or cancel your authorization at any time.
