The Offering Plate

12 Dec

Online Giving

Did you know that Pender offers online giving?

Giving is one of the central themes in the Bible.  Jesus talked more about this subject than heaven, hell or prayer.   Pender now offers online giving as an option to our congregation.

The Web has radically changed the way we shop, conduct our finances, get our news, participate in politics and it’s EVEN changing the way we give. These days, most people appreciate the ability to make a financial contribution even when they’re not able to give in person. Many people also appreciate the ability to plan their giving and set it up so that they don’t have to think about it every Sunday as they are running out the door to attend worship service.

If you are one of these people, Online Giving is here to simplify your life!

Giving online is safe and secure. Whether you want to submit a single donation, would like to set up scheduled giving or view giving history, you are able to do it all online. Online Giving processes donations directly from your bank account using the ACH (Automated Clearing House) payment method.  Pender’s program is like the method many of you are now using to pay bills online and manage your bank accounts.  You are completely in control of your giving.  The process is easy to follow and the office staff will be available to give hands on assistance if you need it.

Online Giving also helps Pender by helping to ensure consistent donations throughout the year, particularly when winter storms, vacations or illness lowers attendance.  Everyone benefits and the ministries we have in serving God are not impaired by periods of shortfall giving.

The following is the link to begin using Pender’s Online Giving function.  If this is your first time, you will have to set up an account.  It’s a very easy process and should only take a few minutes.

Also, as you go through the process and need help, there is a HELP button at the top right side of each page.
