Four Ways to Donate – Online Giving, Bill Payer, Mobile Giving and Snail Mail
Even though we have begun meeting again in person, we won’t be passing the offering plate on Sundays for a while but will use an offering basket when you come up for communion. For those participating online we have several options for online and electronic giving:
1. The church website Donation page is a convenient place to make a one-time or recurring donation online using your checking or savings account, or a debit or credit card. We also have a one-page document that shows all the details.
2. You can set up your personal checking account bill-paying feature to make one-time or recurring electronic payments to the church in the same way that you make electronic payments for your utilities (water, gas, sewer, electricity) and mortgage. We have written a short article explaining how to do this with an example. Most banks have a smartphone app, so you can even do this on your mobile device. We also have a short, 4-minute video that shows all the details about how to use the online bill payer feature of your checking account.
3. Speaking of mobile devices, if you prefer to make online donations with your smartphone, we have a Vanco Mobile app for that! The app is available for free in the Apple Store and Google Play. Here is a 24-second video that explains how to get and use the Vanco Mobile app.
4. You can also use the good old reliable US mail to send a check to Cedar Park First UMC, 600 West Park St, Cedar Park, TX 78613. Here is a short (1:46) video about how to mail it in or drop it off at our secure mailbox at the church.
If you have any questions, please let us know by email or call the church office at 512-335-9540 and leave a message.
