I have access to Fund Accounting and use it to support the work of our Treasurer. I am working to assist our Financial Secretary (Contri...

Importing from Vanco for the First Time

Like many churches, we have seen a significant increase in online giving since the beginning of the pandemic. We use Vanco and I know we could be importing those transactions into PowerChurch. Currently our Financial Secretary is entering those transactions manually. I am gathering information in an...

Re: Contribution Import from .csv file

Here is what I would do. If your vendor allows you to edit the donor information, edit the donor name to include the pound sign (#) followed by the donor's envelope number. Rinse and repeat. Once you've updated your donor records, Download the CSV file. Open the CSV file in Excel. Insert a blank col...

Prepare Contribution Statement for One Member as a PDF

Is there a way to prepare one member's giving statement as a PDF? One of our members must have misplaced her statement as is requesting it now. I don't have access to the contributions module, but our Financial Secretary does and would be happy to do this if there is a way. Otherwise, he has a worka...

Re: Wrong Check Numbers Posted - How to Fix?

Thank you, Neil! These were payroll checks - both April and May. I should have mentioned that. Any difference in the procedure? I'm not too familiar with the payroll module.

Thanks again!

Wrong Check Numbers Posted - How to Fix?

Our treasurer entered the wrong check number for several checks. The entries have been posted. The same check numbers that were correctly used for April were also used for May. What is the best way to correct this? Is there a way to correct this?

Thank you for your help and advice!

Re: ACH and other Electronic Payments to Vendors

Many thanks!!! That is what I was thinking but I wanted to be sure. I didn't want to poison anybody's thoughts with faulty ideas if I was on the wrong track.

ACH and other Electronic Payments to Vendors

We have some payments that are automatically withdrawn from out checking account to pay contracts with service providers and some vendors we've paid via direct withdrawal from our bank account to theirs. What is the best way to record these transactions? If through the Accounts Payable module, there...

Re: How to Force Review Before Transaction Posted?

Well, our treasurer is the one who posted the transactions without viewing them. So I guess I'm out of luck. I was hoping to avoid adjusting entries.

Thank you for your reply, Neil. I appreciate your sharing your knowledge!

How to Force Review Before Transaction Posted?

I am wondering if there is a way to force a transaction to be reviewed before items are posted. As the Parish Administrator, I prepare and sign most checks, (some are signed by our treasurer). Sometimes, I have a question about the accounting on a check and would like our treasurer to review the acc...

Closed Month in Error

One of our finance volunteers closed a month before we were finished with entries. Is there any way to re-open this month? I realize this would not normally be something that should be done or allowed for a variety of reasons, but the month was closed in error. Our treasurer asked me if I could look...

Social Ministry / Case Management

Many pastors work with people outside of their congregation, engaged in social ministry, providing pastoral counseling, and sometimes financial assistance. I think a Social Ministry / Pastoral Care section in PowerChurch would be very helpful for keeping track of all of the "case management" details...
