Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9: 7-8
How Can I Give?
Whether it’s in the Sunday morning offering plate or through an online contribution, you may choose from multiple giving options.
If you wish to set up an electronic funds transfer from your checking account for a convenient method of recurring contributions, please contact Donald Rhodes.
You may also use a debit or credit card to give online below. The debit or credit card information is processed through an electronic gateway service using encryption and other security methods to protect your financial information.
Quarterly and year-end contribution statements will be provided to you as a record of your giving.
How Much Do I Give?
That’s between you and God. While we never tell anyone how much to give, we lift up the Biblical pattern of tithing, giving the first 10 percent of our income to God, as a practical discipline for spiritual growth. (Malachi 3:6-10)
Some people begin with a smaller percentage and grow into the 10 percent tithe. Others feel God calling them to give beyond the 10 percent tithe as their faith and discipleship continue to grow. Everyone is challenged to “take the next step” in their giving.
Where Does My Money Go?
Your gifts to First United Methodist help the church equip, prepare, and send disciples to share the love of Christ with others, within our community and beyond. Contributions help pay for our gathering place for all of us to worship, learn, and grow together.
