P.A.R.

Many in the congregation of Mount Olivet make monthly donations to the church using Pre-Authorised Remittance (PAR). The service is hosted by the United Church of Canada. If you are interested, please complete and sign a 2020_PAR_Authorization and mail it to the church, or scan then e-mail your form to the church office.  Please remember to include a VOID cheque (or e-mail a picture of one). You may authorize withdrawals from either your bank account or your credit card and the funds will come out of your account monthly, on or about the 15th of each month.

MAIL

As long as Canada Post keeps operating, you can mail your cheques directly to the church office (members, feel free to use your offering envelope). Kindly make all cheques payable to “Mount Olivet Lutheran Church” and mail them to this address:

Mount Olivet Lutheran Church
205 Fir Street
Sherwood Park, AB
T8A 2G6

CanadaHelps

CanadaHelps is a non-profit organization whose mission is to increase charitable giving. They forward donations made via their website to registered churches, and Mount Olivet is one of those churches. Please click here to use this option (a new window will open).

Please note that CanadaHelps issues tax receipts for all donations made via their website, therefore Mount Olivet will NOT issue tax receipts for these donations.

TAX RECEIPTS

Tax receipts are issued and mailed out before the end of the month of February each year, for any and all donations made in the previous calendar year. The only exception to this are donations made via CanadaHelps (please see above).

Thank you for your kindness and generosity. God bless you.

EXTRA:

The August 4th blasts in Beirut have created a dire emergency in Lebanon, leaving 300,000 homeless and destroying food reserves in a country already experiencing food insecurity.

CLWR is responding. Your gift will allow our partners to provide emergency shelter, food, and supplies, as well as trauma care. Thank you for responding in love to this emergency! Click here to give.
