Our only employee is the pastor who gets only a housing allowance.
Our church cleaning was being done by members from a signup list. That wasn’t working well so we were going to pay someone to do the cleaning ($225/month ) until a member said she’d do for free if we’d get internet access and put the rest of the money we would have paid towards the Sunday School Program.
How is this treated from a treasurer perspective?
Is she an employee?
Should she get credit for the $225 as a designated donation even though she is never given a check?

If you want to DIY your payroll, I highly recommend you look at using Gusto! It is very user friendly and their support is awesome! Plus they know how to set up and maintain payrolls for churches and nonprofit organizations.
Note: I am a "partner" of Gusto, but as I have told you before ... I never recommend anything that we or our clients have not tried and love =)
