As we deepen our discipleship, we become profoundly aware of how richly blessed we have been by God and we strive to bless others by supporting the various ministries and mission programs of the church through the giving of our time, talent, and treasure. Aldersgate UMC invites all members and friends to grow in the grace of giving.
REGULAR ONLINE GIFTS
You may wish to simplify your giving by authorizing a regular, automated transfer from your account directly to the church. This is called "Electronic Funds Transfer" (EFT). Many people have found this to be the most convenient way to support the general fun. To get started, you can sign up on the Give Now website or download an authorization form, which you can fill out and return to the church office.
ONE TIME ONLY GIFTS
You can also use Give Now to make one time or periodic gifts. The process is fast, convenient and secure. To make an electronic payment, you will need to provide the bank routing number and account number as they appear at the bottom of the check.
Gifts may be designated to any of our most popular funds or for any unique purposes such as special days like Easter, Thanksgiving, Christmas, youth programs, tuition, UMCOR designations, etc. If this is your first time using our Give Now system, we recommend that you create a profile. A profile is not required, but it stores your information so that it is unnecessary to reenter it with each gift and allows you to track your gifts easily.
LONG TERM GIVING
Do you want to help ensure that Aldersgate remains a "Spiritual Home for All" in Orange County in the years to come? Have you considered how you might contribute to that future with a bequest through your will or estate plan?
Through the California-Pacific United Methodist Foundation, you have available many of the same planned giving opportunities normally associated with hospitals, universities and national charities. The Foundation will work with your legal and financial advisors to assist you in making a gift to Aldersgate United Methodist Church, or to any United Methodist board, agency or organization.
Contact the Foundation today for more information.
Donation reports will be electronically transferred from your bank account to the Church Financial Secretary. Contributions will appear on Aldersgate monthly statements as well as on your regular bank statements.
