Grace United Church was founded in 1956 to serve the north-end of Sarnia. We have remained faithful to that call, and continue to be an inclusive, intergenerational, community partner. We thank you for considering a financial gift to Grace United Church.


Pre-Authorized Remittance (PAR) Direct Debit: The most cost-effective way to contribute is through regular, automatic bank transfer, known as Pre Authorized Remittance (PAR) in banking jargon. Through PAR, 100 percent of your gift goes directly to your church without third-party processing fees. You receive an annual tax receipt from Grace United Church. 

  • PAR allows you to consider your gift annually and determine a monthly gift that fits your budget.
  • PAR helps you keep your church strong even on those Sundays you aren’t able to attend.
  • PAR gives your church the ability to plan ahead for the programs and people that will grow our living values in the world.

 To sign up for Pre Authorized Giving fill out the PAR form, and submit it to the office. Contact Office Administrator, Lori Armstrong for more information.
