How It Works
“Pre-Authorized Offering Plan” means that you personally authorize Trinity Bible Chapel to regularly withdraw your offering directly from your bank* account.
All you need to do is select the amount you wish to give and the most convenient monthly date(s) (1st or 15th or both) for the withdrawals.
Trinity Bible Chapel looks after everything else. We arrange for the withdrawal from your account and the bank confirms the transactions on your monthly statement.
* “Bank” refers to any bank, trust company or financial institution.
Convenient and trouble free! You no longer have to remember to write your cheque or bring your offering. If you are away, the church continues to receive your offerings.
Economical – saves envelopes, and most importantly, time.
Dependable – you know the transaction will be made on the date you specify, not whenever the cheque goes through.
Cost effective – greatly assists Trinity Bible Chapel in cash management and reduces administrative time.
How to Begin
Complete the authorization form (see the link below), being sure to note withdrawal date(s) and amount for your own records. (You may wish to make a photocopy for your file.)
Enclose a blank cheque for the account you wish to use. Write “VOID” in obvious type across the cheque. Detach and return the completed authorization form and voided cheque in an envelope to the church office. You may also place the completed form in the offering plate.
How to Change or Cancel
To change either the transaction date or amount or to cancel the plan at any time, simply complete the form below. We have to receive your changes at least 4 business days prior to the transaction date to avoid any returned cheque charges.
Plan cancellation may also be arranged by telephone or email.
Should you require last-minute cancellation, you can place a “stop-payment” order at your bank. (If at all possible, we would prefer you contact us as this would avoid a returned cheque charge)
