Happy Birthday to those born in February!


What is PayPal?

PayPal is the world’s most popular “middleman” service for online purchasing and/or transferring of monies (donati0ns.) Where money grams and wire transfers were the standard in the 20th century, today over 170 million internet users turn to PayPal to send money to each other via email. Since its start in 1998, PayPal has become such a convenient and trusted way to transfer money online. Over 45% of eBay’s purchases go through PayPal. An estimated $7000 gets transacted every second of every day via PayPal. 

Why is PayPal Popular?

 It is widely used, so there is a familiarity and trust with the service.                                    It is very convenient; all you need is an email address.                                                              It conceals banking and credit card info from other party.

How does PayPal work?

PayPal allows people to send money to each other’s email addresses while simultaneously  concealing each party’s credit card and banking information. This is ideal for purchasing goods from strangers, and for transferring money to other private individuals or churches. Similar to an escrow service, PayPal acts as the middleman holder of money. Through its policies, practices, and business integrity, PayPal has earned the trust of both parties. PayPal implements guarantees so that both buyers and sellers have assurances that their money or goods can be recovered should the transaction turn sour. Most of all: both parties can avoid the paperwork of dealing directly with bank and credit card providers.

What do I need to sign-up?

1. A valid email address                                                                                                                           2. A valid credit card or bank account

How safe is PayPal?

Although no system is 100% foolproof, PayPal has designed many checks and balances into its system to keep errors and fraud to a bare minimum. You won’t find another online financial institution that’s better at protecting its customers than PayPal. In fact, PayPal is arguably over-sensitive when it comes to fraud fears, as the will not hesitate to freeze an account that they suspect is practicing fraud.

PayPal is guaranteed against fraud a identity theft. PayPal guarantees 100% against unauthorized payments from your account. Every transaction is confirmed by email to the PayPal account holder. Any transaction you wish to dispute will give you access to a 24/7 support team of analyst who will sort out your problem for you. 

PayPal’s Anti-Fraud Team works 24/7 using sophisticated risk models and advanced technology. The team is able to detect, and often predict, suspicious activity to help eliminate identity theft. The Anti-Fraud Team’s sole job is to make every PayPal transaction as safe and seamless as possible.

“Discover Your Unique D.E.S.I.G.N. for Ministry!” You are needed in ministry ( I Corinthians 12:20, 27). A church grows when it follows the command of Christ to WIN the LOST to CHRIST and then make those believers into disciples of Christ (Matthew 28:18-20). If we are to grow spiritually, the long time disciple and the new believer, must engage continually in winning the Lost and making them into disciples. Believers build the Church! A church with growth and balance do the following – Enlist, Engage, Edify and Evangelize. The Bible reveals that the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:4, 8; 2:1-4) is continuing the work of building the Church the Christ began (Matthew 16:18) AND we are laborer together with God in this building task (I Corinthians 3:9). Where are you in the process? Are you able to share the Gospel with others with confidence? Members have “right and privileges,” but MEMBERS also RESPONSIBILITIES. Join us in BTU, at 5:50-7:30PM every Sunday evening. You are NEEDED in Ministry (I Corinthians 12:20, 27-31) If transportation is needed, please call the Church Office 216.231.0408 before 4:00PM on Friday
