"Honor the LORD with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine."
                                                                   Proverbs 3:9-10


How does the automatic withdrawal program work?
By completing the Enrollment Form and returning it to Hope Center, we will enroll you in the automatic withdrawal program that our bank will use to withdraw the amount you designate directly from your bank account. The withdrawal will appear on your monthly bank statements. You will continue to receive an annual statement of giving from the church for tax purposes.

After I turn in the form, when will my first withdrawal occur?
Your first withdrawal will occur on the 10th of the next month after you turn in your form.  Please continue your regular giving until that time.

What if I want to change the amount that I'm having withdrawn?
Simply phone the church office (925-685-4673) and inform us of the change you would like to make. We will send you a confirming email once we have processed your change.

What if I want to stop my withdrawals?
Noitify the church office in writing by the first of the month that you would like to stop your participation in the program. We will send you a confirming email once we have processed your cancellation.

What if I change banks?
Please send us a new voided check from your new account.

Can I use my credit union checking account?
Unfortunately, some credit unions are not set up for automatic withdrawals. We may not be able to enroll you if you are using a credit union checking account.  But we are willing to try!

Can I designate my giving for a special fund or project?
At this time, all automatic withdrawals will be deposited in the general fund as unrestricted giving.
