This week at Old South Haven Church

This Week at Old South Haven            March 27, 2020
Even when the congregation of a church is unable to meet, there are still bills to pay (utilities, insurance, telephone service, alarm monitoring, etc.).
As a regular giver, you may have wondered what options are available for making your contributions to Old South Haven other than by placing your donation in the collection plate during a Sunday worship service.
Here are two:
1. If you use your bank's "Bill Pay" feature, you may also use it to make your contribution to the church. When you use your financial institution's "Bill Pay" feature, your financial institution will mail a check to Old South Haven. To use this method, enter the payee as "Old South Haven Presbyterian Church." For the address, enter:
Assistant Financial Secretary
Old South Haven Presbyterian Church
P.O. Box 203
Brookhaven, NY 11719-0203
Your check will be delivered by USPS to the church's post office box, then retrieved and given to the Assistant Financial Secretary for recording and deposit.
2. If you don't use "Bill Pay," or don't want to, you may simply mail your check to the address shown in Method 1. To make it easier for you, an addressed envelope, with a stamp, is being mailed to all our regular donors.
Thank you!
Richard Thomas, Treasurer John Deitz, Financial Secretary
