Electronic Giving

Gowrie UMC is excited to roll out an electronic giving option for the congregation. In this day and age of growing technology getting on board and making this option available was, simply, the smart thing to do. Electronic giving allows individuals to make donations on a scheduled, automatic basis—contributions can now be debited automatically from your checking or savings account. Our new electronic giving program offers convenience (and no extra costs) for you and much-needed donation consistency for our congregation. 

Why consider going electronic? 
  • If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes! 
  • Meaning...It’s easier and more convenient for you: Contributions can now be debited automatically from your checking or savings account - no more scrambling around for the checkbook and offering envelopes on Sunday mornings!
  • When travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your monthly offering to continue on an uninterrupted basis. 
  • So...It benefits the church: Seasonal donation slump is reduced, financial forecasting is improved, and planning can proceed with greater confidence. 
  • It has a positive impact on the environment! 

Electronic contributions will appear both on your bank statements and on your quarterly and annual giving statements from the church, the same as your non-electronic contributions. 

Please contact the church office at (515) 352-3715 or via email with any questions or to request an Authorization Form.
