We understand this pandemic will have financial costs to many of our people. If you need to adjust your normal giving, we understand that. If it gets to the point you are having trouble making ends meet, please let us know using form linked above for needs.
But if you normally give to Heritage Park and plan to continue during this time, we are asking that all gifts, as far as it is possible, be moved online for the next few weeks. In the short-term, we are trying to reduce person-to-person contact as much as possible. Depositing physical checks requires two people to make a trip to the church to prepare the deposit and then a trip to the bank to drop it off. While this is, using proper precautions, fairly low risk, we would prefer to move it to no risk for a time.
Please note that on the church’s end, it is much better for the gift to be sent from your bank account versus via credit or debit card. The reason for this is a gift from your bank account has a $0.30 processing fee while credit and debit cards have a 2.2% processing fee. So if you give $100 from your bank account, $99.70 gets to the church, but with a $100 gift from your card only $97.80 goes through.
We understand that there are good reasons that you might want to continue to mail a check directly to the church or to utilize your bank’s bill pay service to contribute tithes and offerings to Heritage Park. That is completely fine. But if the avenue of giving does not matter, please consider moving your giving online for the time being.
Thank you for all you do to support what God is doing through Heritage Park!
