If you currently use automatic withdrawal for your tithing, thank you! Might you be able to increase your monthly amount? 


If you don’t use automatic withdrawal from your bank for tithing, please consider it.  This method is a simple and practical way to consistently tithe. You designate a specific amount of money to be automatically withdrawn from your bank account on a monthly basis on a pre-determined date. Questions? Contact Candy Zidon, parish bookkeeper by email .
