Ways You May Give
1. On Line
You may give a gift of any amount to any area of our church's work. Please click the Donate Now button above.
2. Pre Authorizied Remittance (PAR)
Monthly deductions from your bank account are convenient and easy to set up. With PAR, you know that your gifts come to Metropolitan even if you cannot. You decide the amount; your gift will be withdrawn on the 20th of each month. The church will supply you with offering cards so that when you attend worship, you may participate in the offering by presenting your card. Please call the church office to arrange.
3. Credit Card
Many use their Visa, Master Card or American Express to make monthly, weekly or occasional gifts. The amount and timing of your gift is yours to decide. For regular gifts by credit card, the church will supply you with offering cards so that when you attend worship, you may actively participate in the offering by presenting your card. Please call the church office to arrange.
You may provide post-dated cheques to the church or give periodically by cheque either in person or through the mail.
5. Offering Envelopes
The church will provide you with a set of weekly offering envelopes in which you may include your cheque or cash gift to place on the offering plate during worship. If you would like to contribute on a regular basis, please ask for a set of envelopes that you may use and that enables the church to credit your gifts for receipting purposes. Visitors are encouraged to use the green envelopes that may be found in the pews.
6. Gifts of Publicly Listed Securities
Gifts of publicly listed stocks, bonds, shares and mutual funds to Metropolitan are easy to arrange and can provide you with significant tax savings. Gifts of securities often enable you to make larger gifts without having an impact on your annual income. Please call the church office to arrange.
