Electronic%20GivingMembers and Friends of Central Church are being given the opportunity to sign up for an Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT) to better facilitate financially supporting the churches ministry.  The Finance Committee is encouraging the Central Church family to consider signing up with VANCO, the leading company in the church EFT business.

Some of the benefits to the church and to individual givers include:

The EFT method insures that even if you are unable to attend church on a given Sunday, your offering will still be received by the church.

The church will benefit because the EFT method will allow for better and more consistent budgeting. Regardless of the weather, or people being on vacation, or out-of-town for the weekend, your offerings will be received.

Individuals will maintain control over their giving, ie: you determine a specific day each month on which your contribution will be deposited in the church account, you have the opportunity to support specific mission projects, your giving remains confidential.

Talk to Mike Giles... he can answer specific questions and help you if you're interested in signing up for this service.
