Banks and Credit Unions generally offer a service where you can ask your financial institution to pay a monthly fixed amount to a given recipient, which can be Church of the Nativity. The service is often known as a “Bill Pay” or “Scheduled Payment” service.

The financial institution will write and mail a check with the amount requested at the interval requested and mail the check to the church. They will charge a fee for doing so. Credit Unions are mostly cheaper than banks – as an example, Coastal Federal Credit Union charges a fixed fee of $1.50 per month for this service.

You need four pieces of input in order to set up a regular bill pay request:

  1. From which account the money is to come
  2. How often do you want the payment to occur  – typically once a month at the beginning of the month
  3. The amount to be paid each month
  4. The recipient

The recipient is:

Church of the Nativity
8849 Ray Rd.,
Raleigh, NC 27613
Phone: (919) 846-8338

Bank or Credit Union bill pay is generally an inexpensive way of setting up a regular payment schedule. You are most often able to set such a schedule up, using the financial institutions web interface. The bill will be paid every month until you request it to be cancelled. You can at any point in time change the amount to be paid.

Each bank and Credit Union has their own web interface for setting up a bill payment request. Go to your financial institution’s web interface or contact your local branch office for help when setting up a payment request.

Here is an example of the information needed to set up a regular bill payment request.
