Give and it shall be given unto you. (Luke 6:38)


Enjoy the Convenience of Electronic Giving

Church of the Holy Comforter wants to remind you that we offer electronic giving as a way to automate your regular weekly offering. Electronic giving offers convenience for individual congregation members and provides much-needed donation consistency for our congregation.

Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church’s bank account.

Credit and Debit Card Giving lets you make offerings automatically on a pre-determined schedule using a credit or debit card.

Online Giving lets you set up an automatic donation plan, change your donation plan, make a one-time donation or view your online donation history.

Endowment Fund

The Endowment Fund is intended to enable the Parish to fund ministries beyond those covered by the annual operating budget. The vision for Holy Comforter anticipates continued growth of the Parish and the need for expanded facilities and services. It is important that each of us consider how we can start TODAY to provide for Holy Comforter TOMORROW. Designating the Endowment Fund as a beneficiary of your estate or donating to the Fund during your lifetime helps to insure that capital will be available in the years ahead.

The Endowment fund was established in June 2001 to enable the Parish to provide a means to fund ministries beyond those covered by the annual operating budget. Distributions from the Fund are to be used for capital needs, outreach ministries and grants, seed money for new ministries and special one-time projects as well as for purposes designated by donors to the Fund.

The principal may not be invaded; only earnings can be withdrawn from the Fund on the request of the Vestry and with the approval of the Endowment Fund Board.
