A new opportunity for giving is now available at Avondale Bible Church! It is called “Online” Giving. It is a new and simple way to prioritize and expedite your personal plan for giving. We use PayPal to process credit card, debit card, and direct withdrawal donations and payments. PayPal handles all of the security necessary for processing the transaction and then transfers the money into our church bank account.
Simply visit www.paypal.com to create a paypal account if you do not already have one. Send your tithe using our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Frequently Asked Questions
Why has Avondale Bible Church started accepting online gifts?
This system is intended to make it more convenient for anyone to send their tithes and offerings to the church. Online giving provides a way to strengthen your faithfulness and is a way to help you become disciplined about regular giving.
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.
Will I see my online gifts on my year end statement?
Yes – any gifts sent through the PayPal system will be recorded in the same way your weekly in-service tithes are recorded.
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?
Yes, you will need to create a free account.
I still have questions, what should I do?
