How to Set Up Automated Giving

Bethel Lutheran is pleased to announce the introduction of an electronic option for making regular offerings. Contributions can now be debited automatically from your checking or savings account. 


Our new electronic giving program offers convenience for you and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.  If you are currently giving on a weekly basis, you will no longer need to write out 52 checks a year or prepare 52 envelopes.  And, when travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.
