Generosity and Stewardship
Knowing that God is the source of all things and all that we have, one of our greatest acts of worship is giving. Whether we are generous in our availability to others, in using our talents and abilities in serving the community, or in giving our financial resources, all are intended for extending the presence of His kingdom in Dallas and to the world.
How to give
In addition to checks and cash given in the offering plate during worship services or mailed in during the week, you now have two ways to give online:
- PCPC’s Website: Simply click on the Give Now button below and follow the prompts. You will be asked to log in or create a login account if you have not done so previously. If you have previously registered online for a PCPC event, you will use those login credentials.
- The PCPC App: If you haven’t already, you can download the PCPC app for your smart phone. From the app, choose More, then choose Give which will route you to the PCPC website giving page.
Please read the Session’s statement concerning online giving at PCPC.
Credit card fees
Please note that the convenience of credit and debit card giving costs the church 2.2% of the amount per transaction. Please consider increasing your contribution to include the additional charge incurred by the church.
Electronic funds transfer
You can also give through electronic funds transfer through the PCPC website. By logging in and providing your bank routing number and account number information, your funds can be sent to PCPC directly. This means of giving incurs the lowest fees other than cash gifts.
Gifts of stock
You may also give by donating stock gifts. When stock gifts are given directly to the church, there are tax advantages associated with giving appreciated stock. To make a stock gift, contact Jean Hagin, Accounts Receivable Specialist, (email@example.com, 214-224-2504) or Ardie Aldrich, Director of Finance, (firstname.lastname@example.org, 214-224-2503) for further information.
Giving statements available online
You can now access your personal giving records online. To view your giving history, click here. Once you are logged in, you will see Download My Statement on the left side navigator. Click the link to choose a year, and a PDF version of the giving statement that is mailed to you will be displayed on the screen. At that point you can save it to your computer or send it to your printer. If you would like to opt out of mailed statements, click Go Paperless and set your preference.
If you currently receive weekly offering envelopes but no longer wish to do so, you may opt out. You can choose this preference under Go Paperless as described above.
Whether through offerings of animals and the first fruits of the land in Old Testament times, through currencies of all kinds throughout history, more recently by using checking accounts, or now by electronic means, our giving is a very tangible way of offering ourselves and our resources to the One who owns all things, is our provider in ways beyond what we often realize, and is worthy of our most sincere expression of worship. May the giving of our tithes and offerings regardless of its form be a continual overflow of our gratitude and worship.
