News: Giving Online at AUMC

In an effort to streamline our giving process, we are switching online giving platforms from Vanco to Church Center.

If you have used Vanco in the past (especially for automated recurring donations), please follow the steps below to set up recurring donations through Church Center. There are a couple of ways to do this. 

First, you can visit the Church Center giving platform for AUMC by visiting this link: You will be prompted to choose the donation amount (at which point you can set it up to be a recurring donation) and the account to which you’d like your donation deposited. The “General Giving” option from the dropdown menu is typically where regular church donations and tithes are deposited. In the same dropdown menu, you’ll find some other options if you’d like to give directly to a particular ministry. You can then enter your contact and payment information.

Alternatively, you can download the Church Center app by searching “church center” in your Google Play or Apple App Store. Once you’ve downloaded the app, you can enter your contact information and choose AUMC as your home church. After that, clicking on the “give” button on the bottom row next to the “home” button will enable you to set up your recurring donation or donate whenever you choose. 

Finally, visiting the AUMC website at and clicking on the “Give” button in the upper right of the screen will take you to the Church Center giving page.

If you have previously set up recurring donations through Vanco, the church office will cancel those donations so you are not giving on two different platforms. 

Should you require any assistance with accessing the Church Center giving link, or with setting up the app on your phone, please call (714) 776-5710 or visit the church office M-TH from 9AM-3PM.
