How Can I Donate to First United?

There are three very convenient ways you can donate to First United. The first is in person ~ Drop into our Church Office (Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 12; and 1-3:30).  We accept, Cash, Cheque and Credit Cards.  There is a convenient mail slot on the Queen Street entrance door.

Second is e-transfer – right from your bank account –

The third is PAR. PAR stands for Pre-Authorized Remittance. If you have automatic debits from your bank account to pay for insurance, cable TV, taxes, fuel, or a mortgage – then you understand the PAR principle. It means regular contributions throughout the year that make it easy to donate to First United.

Today many people use the PAR system for their church offering, finding it an easy way to take care of their regular commitments to the church month by month. You can participate in this program.

Your account will be automatically debited and your congregation’s account credited with the amount payable from all members who participate.
