Online Giving to St. Paul's Lutheran Church

We give freely back to God, in thanksgiving, a portion of all He has freely given to us, His children. We hear in 2 Corinthians 9:7, that this is pleasing to God: Each one must do as he has made up his mind, not relunctantly or under complulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

If you wish to make a single online gift or set up recurring donations, you may do so through our third-party provider - Vanco Payment Solutions. Vanco is a PCI (Payment Card Industry) Level 1 service provider. St. Paul's has safely and securely worked with Vanco for over two decades.

Online giving may be done as a credit card payment or ACH bank transfer. Please note, the church will incur a processing fee on each online transaction. Credit card transactions incur a 3.5% fee when using American Express or a 2.65% fee when using Visa, MasterCard, Diners Club, or Discover. For ACH bank transfers, there is a small $0.20 fee per transaction. This may affect how you wish to direct your online donations. You may also elect to increase your gift to cover the cost of transaction fees.
