Frequently Asked Questions:

How secure is online giving/payments? PayPal is a secure way to make a payment with your credit/debit card or bank account information because this information is only processed on PayPal’s secure system.  The church never sees or has access to your credit/debit card or bank account information.

Why does Paypal show an item price on the checkout page?  Because we have offered you the opportunity to choose between several offerings, Paypal’s checkout screen appears as if you were making a purchase.  Therefore you will need to enter the amount of your gift in the “item price” box, and then click on “Update”.  The total of your gift will show as the “item total”.    The offering that you have chosen shows as the “Option” chosen.

Is this service only for members of the church? No – anyone may use this service to give to the church.

Is there any charge or fee for me to use this service? No. You select the dollar amount for your gift.  That is the amount that will be charged and your entire donation is tax deductible.  Transaction fees are absorbed by the church so it costs you nothing to use this secure service.

I don’t know much about PayPal – do I have to have an account to use it?

There is no need to sign up for an account for the one-time donation option or a single payment on your credit or debit card.  Once you enter your amount in the box provided above and click “Give Now” you will be transferred to PayPal.  Click on “Don’t have a PayPal account” located at the bottom of the right-hand column.  Simply enter your credit/debit card information in the column on the right and follow the instructions.
