Welcome! You can now make contributions online. Saint John AME Church now offers the convenience and security of giving through PayPal.

Giving online thru PayPal

The church is using PayPal to process online gifts. PayPal is one of the most trusted sources for online transactions. When using this system, you can be confident that your information will remain secure. Once you send your money, you will receive a confirmation email. We then deposit the funds into our local bank account. Feel free to use this link for regular tithes, giving and special offerings.

NOTE: YOU DO NOT NEED A PAYPAL ACCOUNT TO DONATE.
Sending single donations to the church do not require a PayPal account. However, to set up a recurring donation via PayPal, a PayPal account will be needed.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
Is this system safe and secure? Yes – we have decided to use PayPal which is one of the most trusted online transition processing services available.

Will the church see information about my bank account or credit card? No – the transaction is processed by PayPal. The only information the church sees is your name and the amount.

Will I see my online gifts on my year end statement? Yes – any gifts sent through the PayPal system will be recorded the same way your weekly envelopes are recorded.

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

I don’t know much about PayPal – does it cost me anything to use it? PayPal is very easy to use. You do not need to sign up for an account. The cost to use this service is absorbed by the church in the form of a small per-transaction fee.

God bless you for your faithfulness and generosity in giving!
SUPPORTING THE MINISTRY:

“Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase:” – Proverbs 3:9

Believers provide the financial assistance needed to sustain the operations of the church.  We must give financially as God has prospered us. By properly giving to the church we give to others and ourselves.  How?  When believers give to God He blesses them in return.
