 Looking for a convenient way to support our parish offertory?
 


Faith Direct is the innovative solution that allows you to support our parish using electronic funds transfer from either a credit/debit card or bank account.  It is a hassle-free, simple solution for today’s busy families.

Through Faith Direct you can make all of your contributions to St. Bartholomew the Apostle via automatic payment from your checking account or credit card – just as you may do now with your mortgage, household bills, and other monthly payments. This is a great way to simplify your giving – and it’s the most cost-effective, environmentally-friendly way for us to receive your gifts.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

How does Faith Direct work?

This secure program works directly with your bank, credit, or debit card in the same way as other electronic funds transfer payments you may already conduct (such as utility bills or your mortgage payment). All transactions are processed electronically, debiting your bank account or charging your credit\debit card automatically for the amounts you designate.

Can any additional funds be taken from my account other than what I have authorized?

No! We process only the amount you designate for your church, and only you can change the amount of money that may be processed on a monthly basis. We send an email each month with the details of your upcoming donations so there will be no surprises!

When will my account(s) be debited?

When you enroll in the Faith Direct program you can choose to have your monthly donations processed on the 4th, 15th, or both 4th and 15th. Your donations will be processed in one transaction for the total offertory, campaign and/or second collection donation amounts you have designated. Your church will receive your donations within five business days.

Can I stop, increase or decrease my payment at any time?

Yes, you can make changes to your account anytime by accessing your account online, by contacting our customer service team at 866.507.8757, by sending us an email or even by chatting with a customer service representative online. There is no minimum donation amount, or financial penalty if you cancel.

I would feel uncomfortable not being able to participate in the collection using an envelope or check. What should I do?

Faith Direct provides offertory cards to be used during the collection as a visible sign of your electronic donations. These cards are personalized with your name, church id number and church. These cards indicate your name and the name of your church. You will receive a packet of cards approximately two weeks after we receive your enrollment, and again each year on the anniversary of your enrollment. If you run out of offertory cards, you can request more at any time or print them here.
