We depend totally upon your donations to meet our financial obligations. 

If you are already donating online or mailing in your donations, thank you for your generosity! If you are not, please do! It is easy to donate online: Click here to register for Electronic Giving or you can mail or drop off your collections to the Parish Office. We need you! Please donate today. Let it be a reflection of your love for our parish and gratitude for all the blessings God has showered upon you!  

Cash and/or checks are always accepted and most appreciated.

Click here to register for Electronic Giving, or you can find forms in the Narthex of the Church and in the Parish Center. If you are a new parishioner, a form is provided in your Welcome packet.

  • Weekly Envelopes are provided to our registered parishioners. If you wish to register, please either e-mail Brian Smith, Parish Manager, at or call (813) 961-3023.
  • Not a parishioner? Whether you are just visiting or have not yet made the decision to join St. Paul’s, there are Welcome envelopes available to you in the Narthex of the Church and in the pews.
  • Electronic Funds Transfer – For those parishioners who prefer the convenience of electronic funds transfers, we are providing the option to have your stewardship contributions automatically transferred from your bank account to St. Paul. Once you sign up for the service, the amount you designate will be automatically transferred from your account once or twice a month, whichever is more convenient for you. By the way, if you wish to help the environment and save our trees, you can request that we no longer send you weekly envelopes.
  • Major Credit Card – You can authorize your VISA account on a monthly basis to make a contribution on the 15th or end of the month. You need to complete an authorization form at the parish office.
  • Online Banking through your own bank.

Can I use my regular checking or savings account?

Yes, you can sign up with the bank account that you would like to your weekly offering or one time donation to be drafted from.

Can I use my credit card?

The credit card option allows you to take advantage of any benefits such as airline mileage or cash bonuses your credit card offers. Our parishes accept Visa, Master Card and Discover cards.

Can I easily adjust my donation amount?

Yes, just log into your personal account and make the change in your donation anytime.

Can I make a one time donation?

Yes either log into your account and set up a payment or select “Quick Give” to make a donation without setting a personal username and password.

How are my contributions automatically deducted from my account?

When you create your account, you enter your credit card and/or bank account information and then specify the amount you wish to contribute. Your contribution will be transferred from your account to the church bank account.

When will my contribution be deducted from my account?

The Online Giving system provides you the ability to select the date you would like your contribution to occur. You will receive an email notification prior to each contribution date, and your account will be debited on the date you specify.

If I do not write checks, then how do I balance my checkbook?

You will receive an email notification prior to each contribution date and also a confirmation email that your gift has been processed. These reminders will help you to remember to record the gift in your check register on the appropriate date. Electronic contributions are also recorded on your bank statement and in your Online Giving reports.

Can I contribute different amounts to different offerings? Can they be withdrawn at different times? Can I use different accounts for the contributions?

The system provides you the capability to give different amounts to different offerings at different times. For example, assuming your parish has set up these gift offerings, you are able to give your regular weekly offering on the 1st of the month and your flower gift on the 10th of the month. You are able to use any number of bank and/or credit card accounts for your offerings.

What if I change bank accounts?

Simply login and update your bank account information in your profile.

What if I want to stop using Online Giving?

You can cancel your authorization by deleting your credit card and/or bank account information along with your donation dates.
