What is PayPal, and how is Rejoice using it to enable online donations? A: PayPal allows us to collect payments through our website. It is a low cost way to make a one time donation for a specific campaign or to pay for an event.  It’s a convenient for you to pay for an event or make a one time donation without having to send a check to the church.

Q: Do I have to have a PayPal account? A:  No. Look for the button that allows you to choose to use a major credit card (American Express, VISA, etc.) You can use one of them without ever signing up for PayPal.

Q: Do I have to be a member of the church to donate? A:  No. We are using this method to make payments to specific ministries for all who feel motivated to do so. PayPal does ask for your contact information.

Q: How do I make sure my payment is credited to the correct campaign? A: On the second screen is an area entitled “Add special instructions to the seller”.  Simply type in the name of the campaign/event you are paying for.

Q:  What is the difference between Online Giving and PayPal payments?
A:  Rejoice is using Online Giving for our tithes and offerings.  We occasionally have events that require payment to attend; i.e., National Youth Gatherings, fundraisers, Vacation Bible School, etc. or for one time donations such as Starfish Mission, Briarwood, etc.  For these campaigns/events, we have elected to use PayPal.

Q: I cannot figure out how to make PayPal work.
A:  Please call the church office at 972.724.2323 and we will help you.
