The CSBC Finance Ministry is pleased to offer optional “direct payment” of your tithes and offerings. This method is known formally as “ACH” or Automated Clearing House transfers. It is similar to other direct payments you may already have in place, such as mortgage payments, fuel oil budget plans, and the like. This method of giving is best suited for those who give the same amount weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. If you are interested, here’s how to proceed:
Below please find an ACH authorization form. It is very important to include both your account number and the ABA Routing Number. The ABA number is located on your check and is a nine-digit number. If you are unsure of this number, please enclose a voided check.
Please return this form to our Registrar, care of the church office. Fold and tape the form for your privacy, and write “Registrar” on the outside, and mail or drop off at the office. If you have questions, please contact our Registrar directly.
Your e-mail address is important as you will receive a message from Camden National Bank whenever a transfer is made. This is a “stock” message and does not include any information regarding the amount of the transfer or the identity of the financial institution from which the transfer was received.
This authorization will remain in place until you request a change by contacting Kathleen directly, preferably in writing. Please also note that privacy and anonymity of your giving is strengthened by using ACH services as our collectors are not involved in ACH transfers. Only Kathleen as Registrar records for tax receipt purposes who gives what and when.
If you have any questions, please contact me or any member of the Finance Ministry.
In His service,
Deacon, Finance Ministry
