Automatic Bank Withdrawal

To setup making recurring gifts from your bank account, please download and complete the authorization form. Forms are also available in the church office. Please return the completed form to the church office in a sealed envelope.


Text to Give

Simply send a text to (218) 216-8560 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 return 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. For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically.

Give by Phone

Vanco, our payment processor for electronic giving, is offering a new option at this time. Givers can now call Vanco to initiate an over-the-phone donation to our church from debit/credit cards or bank accounts. We are not allowed to take this confidential information over the phone here in our own church's office. To make a donation this way, call Vanco at 1-800-675-7430, option 1 for Client Services during their business hours of 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. When prompted, tell the representative that the donation is for the Evangelical Free Church of Bemidji with the zip code of 56601, and they will be able to direct it to our church correctly.

Cash or Check

Giving envelopes are available in the church office. Use a giving envelope to give by cash or check. Use the various lines to designate toward the General Ministry Fund, Benevolence, or Debt Reduction Fund.

Please feel free to mail in your check if that if more convenient for you. Send to: Evangelical Free Church of Bemidji, Attn: Financial Secretary, 115 Carr Lake Rd. SW, Bemidji, MN 56601
