Donations and Pledges

The Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program is a convenient way to support our congregation's mission through monthly automatic debits. Here's how to participate:
  1. Download the Pre-Authorized Remittance Form.
  2. Decide on a monthly donation amount as well as how you would like your donation to be allocated between Current, Benevolence, and Other. Some examples of Other initiatives are the Mortgage (Parking Lot) and Canadian Lutheran World Relief (CLWR).
  3. Return the signed form along with a void cheque to any member of council.
You can find out more about the PAR program here.
