You will be asked to set up an account using your email. A login link will be sent to you via email that will enable you to view your giving history and any online payment methods you have stored. You will also be able to set up one time and recurring donations and print your own giving statements. You do not need to set up an account to make one time gifts.

The fees that the church incurs for electronic payments are as follows:

  • Debit Cards: 2.3% + $0.30 per transaction
  • ACH (bank transfer) $0.25 per transfer
  • There is a $1 fee for failed ACH transfers.

When you put your check in the offering basket, the check number and amount of your contribution will be recorded in the PCO system so we can generate your end of year statement for tax purposes. No banking or other financial info will be stored in PCO other than the check number and the amount you gave.
