During this time when we are “welcomed home” each Sunday by Pastor Brent, not in our familiar FBCR surroundings but actually in our homes, we find ourselves adapting to a new normal. Our worship service has changed and we adapt to these new changes using Zoom for our services to bring audio and visual worship into our homes. We are able to adapt to our needs as a result of today’s technology.
Many are wondering, “how can I make my financial support of FBCR where I used to make my commitment in the offering plate.”
First, and perhaps the most obvious, is to use the US Mail to direct your check. While this is an easy and familiar mechanism.
Technology can also bring other aspects of service to our members. Here are a few tips for making your financial support to FBCR. As our church adapts to our new circumstances, we would like to update you on our efforts to provide more convenient options for giving.
Bank and Credit Union Bill Pay
Most banks and credit unions offer a bill pay service. This allows you to direct the financial institution to mail a check to the church. This service is often provided at no cost to you. This is an option available to you right now. You only need to make such a directive with your financial institution.
We have set up an online service to allow you to make your financial contribution from your credit or debit card or bank checking or savings account which will go directly into the church bank account through a secure portal. This option is attractive as it can be done at home from your computer or smart phone conveniently and confidentially. You may direct your contribution to FBCR for any purposes such as pledge, special offerings, or the Once And For All Fund or any other designated purpose. We are excited about this new method of giving being made available to you. Please go to our website and locate the contribute link on the home page. There are instructional video and a giving form to complete. If you have any issues, you may contract the church office staff at (585) 244-2468. We are please to be able to share with you this new and exciting offering.
