Have you ever thought of contributing to First Baptist Church Ashland “electronically”? Giving electronically can help both you and the church.
You benefit because your tithe or offering will be automatically delivered on time, even if you’re out of town or can’t attend services because of illness or family issues. No catching up to do!
First Baptist Ashland benefits because incoming tithes and offerings do not fluctuate as much from week to week, making it easier to meet church expenses.
Currently, there are two ways to give electronically, both of which are easy and safe:
Should you have any questions, contact Lisa Reckley, Church Assistant Financial Secretary, at (804) 798-9014.
- Electronic transfer of funds. The first method is an "electronic transfer of funds" from your bank or credit union account to the church's bank. To accomplish this:
- Complete the First Baptist Ashland "Electronic Transfer of Funds Authorization Agreement." To view and print a copy of the agreement:
- You can specify to electronically transfer funds to First Baptist Ashland monthly or bi-monthly. Transfers are made on the fifth and/or twentieth day of each month.
- Attach a voided check from your account to the Authorization Agreement and turn both in to the church business office.
- Once activated, the Authorization Agreement may be increased, decreased, or terminated at any time by written notification or email to the church business office.
- Please allow two to three weeks, from receipt of your request, for transfers to begin.
- Electronic bill pay.
- The second method of giving electronically is to set up a recurring payment, for a given amount, using the "electronic bill pay" feature of your bank’s online service.
- You can set up the recurring payment to be delivered to First Baptist Church Ashland weekly, bi-monthly or monthly.
- The church will receive a paper check by mail on a regular basis from your bank.
- Of course, you will need to designate First Baptist Church Ashland as a "payee" in the "Bill Pay" section, noting the Church Envelope Number as cross-reference for accounting purposes.
