First of all, we pray that you are all keeping well while adapting to the unforeseen current situation – respecting your social distances and maintaining social contacts is very important for us all at this time.
We are all in this together. We are not alone!
As you probably already know, in support of controlling the spread of COVID-19, Port Wallis United Church (PWUC) is not holding on-site Church worship services. As a charitable organization PWUC relies on our congregation and community for ongoing support, especially now when our church is not operating in its normal manner.
We appreciate that many members may be in a position of their own personal needs, however if you are not – please consider helping PWUC to meet it’s financial commitments and the needs of others within the community.
While the church doors remain closed (until it is safe for everyone to return), we are establishing a method for members to make their Sunday offerings remotely, on-line.
There are 3 options for continuing to make donations and support the work of Port Wallis:
INTERAC EMAIL TRANSFER
PWUC will accept donations via Interac e-transfer through your bank. Please use this email address – firstname.lastname@example.org and if you wish your offering to go to a specific purpose or FUND, please mention this in the note which accompanies your e-transfer.
PAR – Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program
PAR is an automatic donation to our church from your bank account. (more details on PAR here) If you wish to setup PAR, you can download the form from the United church website and mail it to the church OR email it to our envelope secretary, Shelley G at email@example.com. You will need to indicate on this where you wish your donation should go.
This method may also be used by members currently using the Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) program, should they wish to make a donation(s) outside their current pledge. You will need to indicate on this where you wish your donation should go.
It is important to note that all monies forwarded to PWUC will be credited to your envelope number as a charitable donation.
You can mail in cheques via postal mail as well to 263 Waverley Road, Dartmouth NS B2X 2C8.
If you do not currently have a church envelope number and would like a tax receipt and/or envelope number, please indicate this in a note with your donation and include your home address.
Thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support.
