‘Blessed are you, O Lord, our God, forever and ever. Yours, O Lord, are the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory and the majesty; for all that is in the heavens and on the earth is yours; yours is the kingdom, O Lord, and you are exalted as head above all. For all things come from you, and of your own have we given you."
- 1Chronicles 29:10ff

What Is Pre-Authorized Giving?
It's automatic giving: secure, convenient and paperless.
Bank cards, credit cards and such are now the way we pay for most things. Christ Church is fully equipped to handle such payments. What if you could set up your gift to Christ Church to come automatically from your account on a monthly basis? Well, you can... it's called P.A.G., or Pre-Authorized Giving.

Benefits to You
- It is a secure and easy way to support Christ Church since your gift is automatically debited from your bank account or credit card... no more cash or cheques to worry about.
- It makes it easier for you to plan and budget your annual offering through regular paymenst made on the same day of each month.
- It gives peace of mind knowing your offering is made even when you are away, or unable to attend worship.
- You avoid "catch-up" periods, but can still make extra or special offerings using your existing envelope number.

Benefits to Christ Church
- It ensures a steady and reliable stream of funding to ensure the long-term stability of the parish, and the short term obligations we have are paid on time and in full.
- It saves Christ Church money by not having to pay interest charges on un-neccessary overdrafts or bridge financing especially during the summer.
- It's cost effective for Christ Church because we can reduce the volume of paper, envelopes and administrative costs, as well as volunteer hours in collecting and counting.
- this is a service free provided through The Diocese of Calgary, part of the benefit of belonging to a larger family.

Help Is Available
If you have any questions or would like help setting this up, just contact us. We can also help you make arrangements should you wish to make your gift quarterly, semi-annually, or annually.

Christ Church's Guarantee
Should your circumstances change for any reason, you can increase, decrease, alter, suspend, or cancel your recurring gift at any time. An annual income tax receipt will be provided to you covering the total contributions you made to Christ Church over the tax year.
