Church Center is a mobile app and web experience through Planning Center where you can explore, engage, and get involved throughout the week.

Church Center uses Plaid to verify your bank account. More than 4,500 companies trust Plaid because of its commitment to the security of your financial data. Bayside, nor the Church Center app have access to anything you enter into Plaid.
Alternatively, you can choose to manually verify your bank account by choosing the manual option. Here, you will add your account information the same way you would to set up online payments with other companies.
When you use your credit card or pay electronically, the organization receiving the payment pays a processing fee based on the total amount. That includes all of your past gifts to Bayside.
Our new giving system allows you to maximize your gift by covering the fees. This is optional. Simply uncheck the box and Bayside will pay the fees just as it has in the past. Giving by e-check (ACH) is the best way to avoid fees as it only comes with a 25-cent cost regardless of the amount.
