Is it recommended that I pay our church's bills by writing a check ONLY, or is it ok to pay bills online directly to the creditor?
It is fine to pay bills online, just make sure you print out a receipt and file it.

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 =)
