  • Having an easy way to ensure your giving is directed to your church
  • You can set up a recurring amount
  • If you miss a week in church, you can still give

Frequently Asked Questions

Why PayPal?

We decided to use PayPal because it is a trusted and widely recognized service. You can be confident your contributions are safe and private. Using PayPal is also a cost-effective way for us to accept online giving.

Do I need a PayPal account?

No. You can, however, set up an account or simply select the option to contribute with your debit/credit card or through your bank account.  PayPal will send you an email receipt of your contribution.

Can I designate my giving?

Your contributions will be added to the fund you choose (General Fund, etc).  If there are special instructions, or you wish to identify your tithing, there is an option to do so.

Are there fees to use PayPal?

You do not incur a service fee to use PayPal.  The church is charged 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction.

Do I have to be a member of the church to contribute?

No.  Anyone can use this service to donate.  Many people from our community look to contribute to, for example, our weekly Food Bank.
