WHEN ASKING YOUR BANK TO FORWARD YOUR DONATION

Usually you would take these steps:

  • Establish Pasadena United Methodist Church as the Payee.

  • If you have offering envelopes, provide your bank with your offering envelope number, either as an "account number" or in a "memo" option within the payment statement.

  • Verify that the bank has the correct church address and phone number [61 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, MD 21122; (410) 647-3090, pumc2@verizon.net].

  • You can often choose a “recurring” option.

  • Relax and enjoy the service!

Please note: some banks do not charge for this service and others do.

For most banks you can create this transfer action directly online at the bank's website or by phone. No coordination, notification, or action by PUMC is required. Our Financial Secretary will receive notification of your funds transfer to ensure proper annotation to your giving records for the annual statement of giving for income tax filings. Your church envelopes can be used to supplement your offerings if you would like.

I wondered: How can I keep up with my offering when I’m not in the pew?

E-giving is the answer. I used to forget my checkbook or even my envelopes, now I don’t worry at all. My check arrives at the church twice a month whether I’m in church that Sunday or not. Working with my bank, I was able to use their FREE bill pay service to establish a bi-weekly payment to the church. Transfers can be created on a recurring basis: weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. It is completely within my control and quicker for me to cancel or change if my circumstances require.
