On-line Donation Instructions below.
This method of online giving is currently being freely provided during our COVID-19 shutdown comes from our PCA Foundation .
As you can see below you have a couple of options; Frequency – One-time or Recurring; Payment Account Type – Checking, Saving, or Credit Card.; and a Note
Frequency – You have several automatic recurring options
Payment Account Type – If you choose to have the amount automatically deducted from your Checking or Saving account (the recommended payment type because there is minimal .(25 to .75 cent) processing fee). You simply need to provide your Automated Clearing House (ACH) number information found on the bottom of your checks. The first field is your banks Routing Number, and the second one is your Account Number. If you choose to use a credit card, a credit card fee is deducted from your donation. The fee is usually in the neighborhood of 2-3% depending on the card, and it is not tax deductible. In essence, a $100 contribution made by credit card gives the church $96.
Note – If this field is left blank (empty) your donation will be going in to the General Fund, and NOT the Deacon’s Fund. You can if you’d like designate gifts to separate funds, like to Missions, Building Fund, etc. But you MUST designate it in the Note Field.

Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.2 Corinthians 9:6-7 (ESV)
