Giving - Frequently Asked Questions

Why does Mt. Pleasant have an online (electronic) giving option?

There are many advantages in using an electronic giving option.  It provides accuracy, flexibility in donating to your church, any time and/or anywhere and its provides receipts.  You do not have to be concerned about missing out on your commitment to the church if you cannot attend services.

For processing electronic donations, the church uses Pay Check Trust, an established company that moves funds from member financial resources directly to the church’s bank account.

 Is there a cost associated with using this service and how can I make a contribution?

Electronic giving is offered at no cost to you. The church has a contractual agreement with the Pay Check Trust and pays all costs associated for providing this service to donors. Contributions can be made using your credit card, debit card or a one-time electronic check.

How do I sign-up for electronic giving?

You do not have to sign-up for online giving.  Go to the Mount Pleasant website at www.mtpleasantbc.org and click the “Give” button.  This button will prompt a form to be completed to provide information regarding your contribution.  There are two buttons: one for Guest and one for Members.

How will I receive credit for my contributions?

Your bank or credit card statements should show an itemized list of your electronic transactions and that can be used as proof of your contributions.
