Electronic Funds Transfer
With electronic fund transfer (EFT) you authorize the electronic transfer of funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s checking account.
This is a secure, no-fee option!
You can choose to have the withdrawal made weekly, monthly, or twice per month. To get started, click on the link below, fill out the electronic fund transfer form and turn it in to the Generosity Table in November or the church office.
To increase, modify, pause, or end a recurring EFT, email Cindy Hinson at firstname.lastname@example.org.

To ensure the church’s financial responsibility and transparency a Finance Committee is elected annually by the Charge Conference. The committee compiles an annual budget which is submitted to the Church Council for approval. With the help of a group of counters, the Financial Secretary is responsible for counting and promptly depositing donations, and maintaining accurate donor records. The Treasurer disburses payments for expenses as named in the church budget, and prepares monthly financial statements which are submitted to the Church Council. All benevolent donations are submitted on a monthly basis to the conference treasurer or the respective designated charity.
