Giving Through Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
St. Luke's is now offering you the opportunity to make your offering or fulfill your pledge via Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT). This means that the amount of your pledge/offering that you designate would automatically be withdrawn from your bank account and deposited in the churches account. This process relieves the hassle of you having to remember to fulfill your commitment.

How is my electronic contribution automatically deducted from my account?
Once you authorize the transfer, your specified contribution is electronically transferred directly from your checking or savings account into St. Luke’s account.
When will my contribution be deducted from my account?
On its due date. You never have to worry about forgetting a contribution.
If I do not write checks, how do I keep my checkbook balance straight?
Since your contribution is made at a pre-established time, you simply record it in your check register on the appropriate date.
Without a canceled check, how can I prove I made my contribution?
Your bank statement gives you an itemized list of electronic transfers. It is your proof of contribution.
