Olivet Baptist Church invites you to join with us in doing good and sharing out of what you have so that together we may make God's glory and grace known here in New Westminster and across the world!
If you are unable to make it on a Sunday morning to share your gifts in person, or would like to establish a regular pattern of giving, below are some great options to help make that happen.
1. Pre-Authorized Debit
Pre-Authorized Debit is a great way to keep your giving regular with only a little bit of set-up from you. With pre-authorized debit, your pre-set gift is automatically deducted from your account on the 1st and/or 15th of the month. Simply click on the file titled "PAD authorization" under the "Available Files to Download" section at the bottom of this page. Then print and complete the form and return it to us along with a VOID cheque, either in the Sunday offering plate or by mail, or through the mail slot outside the office door. If you would like a portion of your giving to go to the IJM or Journey Home Matching Funds, please ensure you complete this information on the form.
2. Online through Charitable Impact Foundation
Please note that 2.8% of all credit card giving goes to credit card companies. For example, if you give $100 on-line, Olivet will get $97.20. Also, all tax receipts for giving by credit card to Olivet Baptist Church will be sent to you by Charitable Impact.
International Justice Mission (IJM) Matching Fund (what's this?)
From time to time the church receives bequests from the estates of members and adherents who have passed away. For those of you wishing to leave such a bequest, there is a downloadable form below entitled, "Form of Bequest" which, in consultation with a legal advisor, could be inserted into a Will. It should be noted that in drawing up a Will a person who has tithed to their church during their lifetime may wish to consider tithing their estate rather than giving a specific amount.
We are also pleased when family members consider suggesting that donations might be made to one of our funds in memory of a member or adherent of our congregation. Any of the pastors are pleased to assist in the choice of such a designated fund to suit the particular ministry interest of the deceased. Olivet maintains a Memorial Fund that is used for special capital projects at the direction of Council.
