Online Giving – one time or recurring

You may have heard our messages sharing our Online Giving tools with you. New things can often seem overwhelming. We get it. When something is working, we don’t like to change. But everything we bring into this building is here to help us collectively serve Him better, and this is no exception.

Benefits of Online Giving to you:

• The ease of being able to sign up for, and to donate or pay for an event all in one place.

• Even when you’re traveling or visiting family away from our four walls, our giving is with you through our website, the mobile giving app, or through text messaging to continue to faithfully give.

• We now even have the ability to set up recurring giving, meaning, you set the amount to want to donate to a certain fund, and it’s automatic each month.

• You can login to you giving account and track your donations for the year. Use this for your taxes and set pledge goals for yourself.

We welcome you to try our Online Giving resources and any questions you might have. We have several support documents to help you set up your documents and start using any or all of the features we have access to. Please contact the office or send us an email if you have any questions.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)

The Simply Giving Program endorsed by Thrivent Financial Bank enables every household or individual to give church offerings through electronic funds transfer (EFT).

There is no cost to you.  Just think–you won’t have to write checks, wonder where you put your offering envelopes or try to catch up after an absence from church!

How to Get Started

To set up electronic donations, simply complete the authorization form. Return your completed form to the church office or place it in the donation plate any Sunday.  Donations can be debited automatically from either a checking or savings account.  If you wish to participate through a checking account, please include a voided check.  To participate through a savings account, include a savings deposit slip.

Please indicate General Operating Fund as our church does not have an on-going Building Fund at the present time.  If that changes in the future, revisions can easily be made at your request.  We suggest that you use an effective date of three weeks from now to allow time for processing.

It’s that simple!

Thank you for your prayerful consideration of this giving opportunity.

Service Information

October 26th, 2011

Welcome guests! We are honored that you have chosen to worship here today.  Following worship please join us outside for refreshments on the patio. We invite you to sign our guest book in the gathering space and fill out the insert in the bulletin and place it in the offering plate.

Prayer requests for joys or concerns may be written on the bulletin insert.  If you would like your prayers offered during the service, fill out a prayer request card in the pew racks and hand it to an usher.  All requests will be added to our prayer list.

Holy Communion is celebrated each Sunday. All baptized Christians who believe that Christ is truly present in this meal are invited to the Lord’s Supper. Please come forward by the center aisle to receive the bread, then dip it into either the red wine or white grape juice in the chalices before eating. You are welcome to kneel or stand at the altar railing for prayer after communing, or go back to your seat by the side aisles. Those not yet instructed in this sacrament are welcome to come forward for a blessing.

Nursery Care is available for infants and toddlers in the building across the patio from the worship space. A Family Room is also available through the rest room door on the west side of the sanctuary, where families may bring their active children while still participating in worship.

Activity Bags for children to use during Worship are located on the coat rack in the gathering space.

Large Print Bulletins are available on the table in the gathering space or from an usher.

Prayer List

October 26th, 2011

Prayer is an important part of our life in community. As we share one another’s burdens and joys we lift them up to God, trusting in God’s mercy. Prayer also motivates us to find tangible ways to support those for whom we pray. Each Sunday in worship we pray for the church, the world and all those in need. In addition our prayer group gathers every Friday to pray for those on our prayer list. We encourage our members to remain connected throughout the week by lifting each other up in prayer. You are invited to add your prayers of concern and/or prayers of thanksgiving by emailing the church office.

Music Ministry

We are committed to self expression through the joy of music, performing varying styles as well as giving people opportunities to express their talents through many mediums. No matter what your faith, you are welcome to join us sing, play instruments and explore your gifts with us Sunday mornings. We rehearse starting at 9:00am for the 10:00am worship service, and following worship too. We offer weekly selections of music including choral, jazz, pop, and classical music, incorporating various instruments for making a joyful noise. Come and sing, come and play, come and congregate in community with us!

Feel free to contact our Youth and Family Director, Emily at youth@alcburbank.org

Sunday School

Children Pre-K through 6th grade are invited up for the Children’s Time during our 10am worship each Sunday. They are then dismissed for Sunday School to learn more about a Bible story and do a craft or activity led by one of our rotating team of adult teachers. The children come back to the service for Holy Communion with their families.

 

 

Baptisms and First Communion

Baptisms may be arranged by calling the church office and speaking to Pastor Ryan. Baptisms are usually celebrated within the Sunday 10am worship service. First Communion instruction is offered when parents in consultation with the Pastor believe their child is ready to participate in this Sacrament.
