Your generous financial contributions help us to live our mission: “Called to Proclaim God’s Love in Christ for Every Person.” Just as you rely on receiving income on a regular basis, QALC relies on and appreciates your efforts to make regular contributions to support its mission and ministry, which continues whether you are present or not. We invite you to prayerfully consider making a regular contribution to the life of the community. This page can help you explore ways to simplify your giving. There are many ways to give, even from afar:
Queen Anne Lutheran has the ability to receive gifts electronically. The “Donate” button, below, will take you to a secure server using PAYPAL where you can make a donation through an electronic fund transfer, debit card or credit card.
Simply Giving, a program sponsored by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and administered by Vanco Services, allows you to securely transfer money to Queen Anne Lutheran Church from your checking or savings account on a recurring basis. It’s very convenient. You will no longer need to write out checks and prepare envelopes every week. Even when travel, illness, or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, your electronic contributions will continue to be received on an uninterrupted basis. To enroll, please print this Enrollment and Authorization Form. Complete this form, attach a voided check and return it to the church office in a sealed envelope marked “Financial Secretary.”
You can now make a contribution to Queen Anne Lutheran Church
with a quick text message. Simply send a text to 206-866-6402 with the amount you would like to contribute. Make sure to include the dollar sign before the amount. Example: $25. Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and credit or debit card information. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt via email.
Weekly offering envelopes are a great way to combine your giving with attendance at worship services. Simply drop your gifts in the offering plate, and your personalized envelope number will assure that your contributions are properly credited. Of course, offering envelopes can be mailed to the church office if you can’t attend a service. Special envelopes for special services and causes are included in your offering envelope packet.
2017 Offering Envelopes
2017 offering envelopes have been distributed to members; if you have not received your 2017 envelopes and would like to use them for giving, please contact the church office and we will send you a packet. The Finance Committee encourages each of you to make faithful use of them. Please use the regular offering envelopes to make gifts to Queen Anne Lutheran Church. Special offerings envelopes are also provided in the packet for contributions to special programs—local and church wide—such as L.Y.O.N.S. and Lutheran World Relief.
Also, with regard to envelopes and in consideration for the dedicated Counters who process all of our receipts, we invite your help to save them time and effort. To ensure accurate accounting of your gifts, it is important that the dollar amount of your gift is written on the offering envelope. When using the special offering envelopes, please write the name of the fund or organization (i.e., altar flowers or Queen Anne Helpline) and the total dollar amount enclosed .
We realize, of course, that there will be times when you will use alternate means for your gift(s) such as pew envelopes. In those cases, please include the following information on the envelope: (1) your name, (2) your assigned envelope number, (3) amount being designated to each fund or organization, and (4) total dollar amount enclosed.
The Counters will appreciate your help.
Gifts of appreciated stocks and securities can be an excellent way to share God’s gifts. Donating stock to your church is a simple process. Queen Anne Lutheran Church maintains a brokerage account at Edward Jones for the purpose of accepting your gifts of stock.
