The Pre-Authorized Transfer (PAT) program allows you to make regular monthly contributions to Scarborough Congregation, your favourite campground, the Canadian Mission and/or CEM, or to World Church through an automatic withdrawal directly from your bank account on the 15th of each month.

You can change the amount and/or allocation of your contribution, or stop the transfers, at any time. Before tax filing time you will receive charitable tax receipts from your local congregation and/or the Mission Centre, depending on how you allocated your contributions.
