Online Giving: Fast, easy and secure
   Halstad Lutheran Church is pleased to announce the introduction of an electronic option for making regular offerings. Contributions can now be debited automatically from your checking or savings account or processed using your credit or debit card. Our new electronic giving program offers convenience for you and much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

   When you travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your weekly offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q:  How do automatic contributions work?
A: No matter which donation method you use, you will be asked to select a payment method, start date, frequency and contribution amount.  On the date(s) scheduled, donations will be processed and deposited into the church's bank account.

Q: When will my contribution be processed?
A: Your contribution will be processed each month on the date(s) you authorize.

Q: What can I use to show I made a donation?
A: The itemized list of electronic transaction that appears on your bank or credit card statement can be used as proof of your donations. When you sign up online, you will also receive a contribution email when your contribution goes through on the date you specify.

Q: How safe is Electronic Giving?
A: It is safer than writing checks or carrying cash to church. Secure donation services are provided by Vanco Services, LLC. Vanco processes electronic donations for more than 15,000 churches and nonprofit organizations.

Q: How can I still participate in the offering during services?
A: You can still display a symbolic act of giving by either writing “I give electronically” on the outside of an envelope or by using one of the “I give electronically” cards in the pew hymnal holder and drop into the offering plate.

Q: What if I need to cancel or temporarily place my donation on hold?

A: You can cancel or suspend donations by notifying the church. Or if you signed up online, you can go online to cancel or suspend your own donations.
