2. The Simply Giving Program, sponsored by the Thrivent Federal Credit Union, helps people live generously.  It is a convenient, safe and simple way for individuals to make automatic payments to nonprofit organizations through electronic fund transfer (EFT) directly from checking or savings accounts.  Thrivent Federal Credit Union has contracted with industry leader Vanco Services, LLC to provide electronic payment processing services.

Simply print out the Automated Giving form and return it to the church office of Gethsemane Lutheran Church.  The church financial secretary, Wendy Krause, will then process the request with Thrivent Federal Credit Union.  Use this same form to begin automated giving, or to change the amount or frequency of current automated giving.
