Luther Village is on PAR! This means we have set up a program where you can donate money on a regular monthly basis to Luther Village! Many people use the PAR (Pre-Authorized Remittance) program for their church offering, often finding it a convenient way to take care of their regular commitments to the church month by month. Luther Village felt the same principle would benefit the camp. Being seasonal, some months of the year we have no income but still have expenses. The PAR program and its’ monthly income can help get us through the off season. You can participate in this program that will help Luther Village! If you want to contribute to Luther Village monthly throughout the year then you understand the PAR principle. It is similar to having automatic debits going from your bank account to pay for insurance, cable TV, taxes, fuel, or mortgage.
Once you begin to donate, you could be saying this: “Whether or not I am at camp, it still has on-going commitments every week that need my donations. Luther Village is important to me, and so is my financial commitment to its work. That is why I use the PAR program to fulfill my commitment.” Your account will be debited on or about the 20th of the month and Luther Village’s account credited with the amount payable from everyone who participates. If you choose to change your mind, this can be cancelled by you the donor at any time. The United Church of Canada administers this program that some Lutheran churches are already on PAR with.
