Text Giving

You can now make a contribution to Prince of Peace with a quick text message!

Text giving is a quick and easy way to give an offering for those of us who don’t carry cash or checkbooks – and you can include the kiddos, too! It’s also a great way for students to begin practicing personal stewardship.


How to give by text:

Simply send a text to 952-260-6167 with the amount you would like to give. Make sure to include the dollar sign before the amount. (Example: $25)

You’ll receive a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and credit or debit card information. If you are already signed up to give electronically at POP, please use the same email address. Registration takes less than 5 minutes! Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt via email.

For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically!
