Pre-authorized Remittance (PAR) is a way to support First Lutheran directly from your bank account or credit card every month. The First ELC PAR form can be downloaded below. Indicate the monthly contribution under “Local Church”, fill in the blanks and mail it with a void cheque to:
First Lutheran Church
116 Bond Street
Toronto, Ontario, M5B 1X8
The United Church of Canada is referenced on the form because it administers the PAR Program on behalf of many church denominations. Your donations will go to First Lutheran, less a very small transaction fee. Tax receipts will be issued by First Lutheran. Thanks you for considering this.
You can download a copy of the PAR form here.
You can also download a fillable PDF of the PAR form here.
First Lutheran is registered with Benevity, an employer matching gift program. If you’d like to see whether your employer is registered just go to Benevity.com or inquire with your Human Resources department. Your contribution to First Lutheran would then be matched by your employer.
