THE PAR PROGRAM: PAR stands for Pre-Authorized Remittance. Even though you may not be able to attend services, your church has your on-going commitment every week. PAR allows you to make your contributions through a monthly electronic withdrawal from your bank account. Or, if you would rather donate monthly using your Visa or Mastercard, we now have the ability to assist you in that manner. This will allow the church to have a more even cash flow to meet expenses, even in your absence, or during the slow summer months. If these methods of contribution appeal to you, or you would just like some further information please contact the church office for more details.
 
 
INTERAC E-TRANSFER Donating is now easier than ever, especially during this uncertain time. Just a few clicks through your online banking, and your donation will go straight to Highlands United Church. We are set up with auto-deposit, so there is no need for a security question or password. All we ask is that you include your name and mailing address in the “Message” area, so we will be able to credit you with an income tax receipt.  When setting up your e-transfer, please use our email address highlandsunited@shaw.ca.

 
OFFERING ENVELOPES: Visitor Envelopes are available for your use in the pews, and please indicate anyway we can be of service to you. Be sure to include your name and address to obtain an income tax receipt at the end of the year. If you would like to donate regularly, we can set you up with numbered offering envelopes, which also include Special Occasion envelopes.

 
CHEQUE: Cheques can be made out to “Highlands United Church” and mailed to:

Highlands United Church
11305 64 Street NW
Edmonton AB T5W 4H6

 
 
BEQUEST: Did you know that you can leave a “Planned Gift” to Highlands United Church through a bequest in your will, or by making the Church the beneficiary (or one of the beneficiaries) of a life insurance policy? And that the Charitable Donation receipt your estate receives will help offset the taxes payable by it? Any bequests made to Highlands United Church will be gratefully received, cherished and acknowledged; and will make your surviving loved ones even more proud of you and your forethought.

    I would like to express my Thanks for the very special service this morning. It was most meaningful and inspiring – It is really neat to see how technology can be used. I found myself spiritually involved with your message as well with communion and as always the words have special meaning for me. Community would be nice but since I thank you for your creativity. Loved the Bunny and its story,
