What is Online Giving?
Online Giving is an easy and convenient way to support the ministry of Greer First Baptist. The benefits of using Online Giving include the convenience of being able to give from anywhere at a time that is convenient for you, not having to write checks, and the ability to set up recurring donations so you don’t miss an opportunity to give when you are away from the church.

Is there any other way I can set up a recurring donation to the church?
Yes. If your bank has an online bill payment service then you can set up your bank to automatically send a check to Greer First Baptist at 202 W. Poinsett Street, Greer, SC 29650. By using your own bank’s online bill payment, you do not need to set up a PayPal account, you can easily manage the recurring donation through your bank’s website, and the church is not charged any fees from PayPal for the donation. Otherwise, you can use the PayPal system.
How does the church process online donations or online payments?
Greer FBC uses PayPal to process credit card and direct withdrawal donations and payments. PayPal handles all of the security necessary for processing the transaction and then transfers the money into the church bank account. The church receives an instant notification about the donation/payment. Our financial secretary is able to enter donations into the normal giving record just like donations given on Sunday mornings.
How secure is online giving/payments?
PayPal is a secure way to make a payment with your credit card or bank account information because this information is only processed on PayPal’s secure system. The church never sees or has access to your credit card or bank account information. You can see more information about PayPal security here.
Will the information I provide be kept private?
How can I keep track of my online giving / payments?
You will receive a regular giving statement from the church which lists all donations you have given (online and in person). If you have a PayPal account then you can also see a record of donations or payments by looking at your account history. All donations and payments using your credit card will show up on your credit card statement clearly marked from Greer FBC.
