Online Giving Options
Virtual Check Debit
Automated Bank Debit or Virtual Check is the easiest and most effective way to give, whether you are giving one time or setting up recurring giving. Plus, 100% of your gift goes to the ministries of AAUBC because there are no processing fees.
While we allow the use of credit cards for tithes and offerings, we still strongly encourage the use of electronic funds transfer rather than credit card for two primary reasons:
Although many pay off their credit cards each month, many also do not. We do not want to encourage someone to go into debt and pay interest on gifts given to the church.
With electronic transfer, your entire gift goes to the church. When using a credit card, as much as 3% of your gift can go to the credit card company.
The ministry of Atlantic Avenue United Brethren Church is funded by God’s provision through the tithes and offerings of faithful AAUBC members and attendees. At AAUBC we honor God’s provision by exercising wise and faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and full accountability so that the financial integrity of the church remains beyond reproach.
