Church website developer Ascend has announced its merge with Tithe.ly. This partnership is good news for those of us on the Ascend platform and parishes who are looking into developing a new website. Tithe.ly will be able to offer a lower monthly webhosting fee which includes features such as e-newsletters and sermon podcasting. There is no cost to sign up for a Tithe.ly online giving account, and the Diocese of Edmonton receives the discounted processing rate of 2.75%+30c per transaction for debit/credit card donations. If you would like to register for a Tithe.ly online giving account, please call Margaret at the Synod Office (780-439-7344) for the registration link.
