Steps for PCO Giving Instructions

***Important Note:  We would like to make you aware that while you can certainly use your credit card to make payments, we strongly encourage you to use an automatic withdrawal from your bank instead, and the reasons is simply the cost of the transaction. We are charged 25₵ per transaction for a bank transfer, but we pay 2.15% plus 30₵ per credit card transaction. The credit card companies make those additional fees. And so, for a simple number, if you were to give $1000, we would get $999.75 for a bank payment, but only $978.20 for a credit card transaction. There is also an option that allows you to cover these fees, for either transaction, so that the church will receive 100% of your giving.

If you wish you can text your giving by “Text any dollar amount to 84321 to give.” If you need further assistance you can watch this short video to help.
