Offerings are made weekly using offering envelopes by some members and attendees at the church service. Others use a Pre-authorized remittance where scheduled payments are made directly out of their chequing account to the church account. Regardless, of the method, each offering helps to meet the commitments in the work of the ministry at All Saints.
PAR (Pre-authorized Remittance)
If you have automatic debits to your bank account for such things as mortgage and utility bill payments, then you are using the concept of PAR, Pre-Authorized Remittance. More and more churches and mission agencies are using PAR as a system of convenient monthly giving for their members and supporters. It is a simple and easy way for you to take care of your financial commitment to the ministry of All Saints Lutheran Church, wherever you are. Your account will be debited on or about the 22nd of each month and the bank account of All Saints Lutheran will be credited with the amount payable from all the members who participate in this plan. A receipt will be issued by All Saints at tax time each year. Since one of the basic purposes of the program is to ensure consistent support of the ministry, the more people on the program, the more valuable it is to our work. All amounts will be applied to our annually approved operating budget and you may choose to designate portions of your offering which will be applied over and above our designated budget.

How To Get Involved After you have decided on the amount of your monthly offering through PAR, print out and fill in the Authorization Form and attach a sample cheque from your account marked ‘sample’ or ‘void’. Some simply choose PAR as their preferred method of contributing while others offer a consistent monthly amount and supplement through other times of the month through offering time.
