This service is normally provided free of charge both to you (the bank’s customer), and to the church. And when you give online using a Recurring Payment, you never have to worry about forgetting your checkbook or being out of town. Instead, your gift can be deducted automatically from your account without you ever having to manually write a check.
Each bank’s website will be slightly different, but here is how the basic process works:
1. Log on to your bank’s website and click on the link for the “Bill Pay” feature.
2. Add the church as a Payee.
Church On The Rock
321 E Merrick St
Plant City, FL 33563
3. Set up a Recurring Payment to be sent to the church on a scheduled basis (weekly, monthly, etc.). You can also send a one-time gift (e.g., for a special annual offering).
4. Each time you make a gift (either one-time or recurring), the bank will mail a check to the church. This check will be deposited into the church’s bank account just like a regular, handwritten check.
