Many families are now using debit cards and bank web sites for purchases in lieu of check writing. For your convenience we are now pleased to offer two methods for “Online Giving” to those who are interested.

  1. Via our website: Your offering can be made from anywhere you have access to our website, or…
  2. Via your smart device: Now you can use your smart device to give your offering. Just download and install the PayPal app from the Apple Store or Google Play Store, create or log into your PayPal account, transfer money to iOffering@murrietacoc.org.

With either method you will need a PayPal account. During set up, you will have the option to choose a method of payment to link to your PayPal account.

  • If you link your PayPal account directly to a checking account, you will not pay any fees.
  • If you link it to a debit card, the giver will be required to pay a small fee.
  • If the giver links their PayPal to a credit card, the giver will be required to pay a $20.00 fee in the form of a credit charge back.

Either method is designed to give to the Murrieta Church of Christ General Fund, however, you can also specify alternative funds (i.e. Building Fund) in the comments section of your donation. Please use the method that is best for you.

This PayPal tutorial is a brief video that walks you through the steps to give online after your PayPal account is set up.


Security is a must. We use PayPal, which utilizes 128-bit SSL security during the transmission of all sensitive information, so you can feel confident that your information will be secure. For online giving via the website, your offerings can be made via check, debit card or PayPal if you already have an account there, but a PayPal account is not required to give online for this method. On the contrary, to use the PayPal app on your smart device, you will need to set up a PayPal account first. It’s fast, easy, and efficient.


Your online offerings will be included on your annual Statement of Contributions. All contributors will receive an email confirmation, which is also acceptable as a valid receipt for tax purposes. Please forward any bookkeeping questions to Nancy Smith at bookkeeper@murrietacoc.org or any questions regarding the Online Giving webpage / app to Howard Williams at webmaster@murrietacoc.org
