Church Resources Update

On-line Services Extended for 2020

The ARP Foundation Board has extended the March offer for on-line giving services beyond May 31st and will continue the program until year end.
So far, 25 of our smaller churches have accepted the Foundation’s offer to use the service as a help bridge the Covid giving gaps.  Central Service staff have enthusiastically stepped-up to create the individualized church accounts, process gifts, and return cash to the participating churches. The offer is still open for churches in need, but as the number of individual gifts increases, churches may expect a transition later in the year to process gifts once a month.

We will continue to absorb the 1% fee for direct bank withdrawals (ACH); Churches can also encourage donors to set-up automatic bank payments to the church to avoid the cost of  credit card transactions (3%), or by increasing their gifts to offset the cost.
