We are pleased to announce that you are now able to set City Life Church as a Payee in your online banking. You can then give your tithes, missions, building or other offerings the same way you pay your utility or other bills through online banking using Electronic Funds Transfers.

Making donations to City Life Church using Electronic Funds Transfer from your bank:

STEP 1:

Set up City Life Church as a payee in your online banking:

  • You can do this the same way you would set up any other payee
  • In most financial institution’s online banking, City Life Church will be under the payee category ‘other’ or ‘miscellaneous’ or it can be accessed by searching for City Life Church

Note: Please contact the church office if you are unable to find City Life Church in your bank’s payee list.

STEP 2:

Create your personal City Life Church account number(s) so that your donation can be properly credited to you and designated correctly.

There are two ways to determine your City Life Church account number(s):

1. You can contact the Church office and get your account numbers

OR

2. You can create your own following these validation rules:

Note: You will have one account number for each City Life Church designation you donate to (such as Tithes, Missions, Building Fund – similar to the designations that appear on our donation envelopes). Most regular donors will end up with several numbers set up on your online banking payee list.

Account numbers and validation rules:

1. Account numbers will be a fixed length of ten digits

2. First four digits will be numeric consisting of your envelope (tithing) number. This identifies you.

a. If your tithing number is less than four digits, then add an appropriate number of zeros at the beginning

– E.g. if your number is 429, then it would be 0429

3. The last six digits of the customer account number will be letters indicating the designation of your donation. This will be the first six letters of your designation as follows:

a. Tithes will be – TITHES

b. Missions will be – MISSIO

c. Building Fund will be – BUILDI

d. Alms will be – ALMS00 (Note – where the letters run out ‘zeros’ fill the space)

4. Here is an example of how you would build your account numbers:

Suppose your tithe number is 429

Tithe number  +Designation=Account number
0429TITHES=0429TITHES
0429MISSIO=0429MISSIO
0429ALMS00=0429ALMS00
0429BUILDI=0429BUILDI

5. If your designation is more specific such as a specific Mission’s Project or field, please contact the church office for assistance in creating correct account numbers. Contact the Church office at 604.792.0694 or office@citylifechurch.ca.

Remember: The important thing about the account numbers is that we need to know who you are and the designation for your donation.

STEP 3:

Grab a coffee, relax and give your tithes and offerings from the comfort of your home.
