Electronic giving

At present, approximately 30% of the gifts received at Palm are from members who have chosen to use electronic giving.

We are respectfully asking those members who are not currently enrolled to consider shifting your giving to Palm from the envelopes to electronic giving.

Palm’s website (www.palmlutheran.org) includes guidance and direction to assist you with this shift.


Further, beginning on Sunday, October 2 and continuing for each of the 5 Sundays in October, there will be a table in the narthex both 30 minutes prior to worship and for 30 minutes after worship.

The table will be staffed by a member of the Finance Committee who will gladly answer any questions that you may have and assist you in completing the enrollment form if needed.

Electronic giving ensures that your offering arrives in the amount and on the dates that you desire even in those instances when you can’t attend worship due to illness, bad weather, or travel plans.


You may have the funds withdrawn from either a checking or savings account and you may elect your preference to give on a weekly, semi-monthly (twice per month), or monthly basis.

You will need to provide your Bank Routing number as well as your Account Number to complete the form.

The form must be delivered to Ruth in the church office, and she will set up your electronic giving based on the instructions that you provide.

The Finance Committee team can assist you with this step as well.

With reasonable notice, you can start, change, or end your participation in electronic giving at any time.


Electronic giving is safe and effective. Further, it reduces the amount of volunteer time that is needed to count, process, and deposit gifts that are received through the envelopes.

Thank You for your consideration of this opportunity.  Please reach out to Mike Bratton, Harry Fox, or Vanessa Galvan with any questions or concerns.


  1. Have a brief Temple Talk on Sunday, September 25 announcing the October program and another on Sunday, October 16 to reinforce the message.
  2. The Finance Committee will align on coverage for each of the 5 Sundays. Church Council members are welcome to participate as well if they desire.
