Giving in the ELCG
Giving is something we are made to do. We become more whole by offering ourselves, our time, and our resources for God’s mission. Our members give in a wide and wonderful variety of ways. Click here for a handout on stewardship in our community.
Making Financial Gifts to the English-Speaking Congregation
In addition to placing money in the offering basket during worship, there are three ways you can make a financial gift to the English-Speaking Congregation: –
1. You can give by bank transfer. This is a simple, safe, and secure way to give. Consider setting up an automatic transfer (for example, each month), so that you never miss making a gift while you’re away. Our bank details are below. You can also request a ‘bulletin de versement‘ from the church.
