One payment for several invoices

Fellow Gnucash users,
I am planning to switch from QuickBooks to Gnucash for my Church's
finances (I have been using Gnucash for my personal finances for
years). Now I was wondering whether it is possible to make one payment
for several invoices. Let me explain our scenario:
Every Sunday we collect checks from several people as part of the
offering. Since we need to issue giving statements at the end of the
year, we need to keep track of who gives how much. Thus I would create
a Customer for each member of our church who donates. When I enter the
offering into Gnucash, I would create an invoice for each check
connected to the Customer (this seems to be the proper way to link
offerings to individuals). Once the checks clear, I would then process
a payment for the invoice so that the money shows up in the bank account.
The way that the bank deposit works, however, is that there is one
deposit for all checks. I.e. on the bank statement there will be one
item for the sum of all deposited checks collected on one Sunday.
So what I would like to have is one transaction in the checking
account that has a split for separate invoices (each invoice belonging
to a different customer).
Is this possible to do? If so, how? And even if the current GUI does
not support such an action, would such a transaction (different splits
being the payment for different invoices) be logically consistent with
Gnucash's data model?
Thanks for the help,
