A Special Note About Donations 
We want you to know how you can make donations to Hosanna during this time. Our operations and expenses still continue even though we are meeting in a variety of ways.
 
PAR: If you are on PAR, everything will proceed like normal – thank you. If you would like to join PAR, let us know and we will send you the form (or you can pick one up at the office).
 
E-TRANSFER: You may email transfer us: donations@hosannalutheran.ab.ca. Please include at least your email address in the notes section, along with any designation for your donation. If your banking software does not allow you to enter personal information, and you are not on our mailing list, please call the church office at 780-484-3932 and provide your address so we can mail you a receipt.
 
MAIL/MAILBOX: You can mail in your donations (some of you already do this – thank you), or you can drop them off at the office or in the locked mailbox by the front door.
 
ONLINE: You can also donate online via credit card. Here is the link to the Hosanna website page with the donation link: 
 
If you give online, please note a couple of things, 1) you will receive a receipt from CanadaHelps - not Hosanna. 2) This option costs the church the most, as we pay a fee for the credit card and a fee to CanadaHelps. It is not huge, so this remains a viable option, but if you can do one of the other choices, your money goes a bit further.
