St Michael is now offering the capability to have your offering automatically sent to the church from your checking or savings account. You may also schedule payments for Preschool At St Michael and the SMLC Academy of the Arts. We have partnered with Thrivent Financial for Lutherans through their Simply Giving Program to offer this service to our members. The program is completely voluntary and is free to both the church and members for checking and savings accounts. The debit card feature has a minimal cost to the church, but you can chose to pay this cost when giving if you want, but not necessary. Thrivent has contracted with Vanco Services, a leading name in the payment processing industry, to process the bank and debit card transactions.
Three types of offerings can be made: One Time, Weekly or Monthly. You may select the fund that you want your offering to go to, with the General Fund being the most common.
Please be sure when you are scheduling your offerings that you select the proper day associated with the frequency of your offering from the list above.
Changes are easy also. Go to the same page and log in.
You may also begin the electronic offering process with pen and paper by contacting the church office and requesting a form.
Please address any questions regarding this service to:
