First United Methodist Church Offers Electronic Giving
1st Church is pleased to provide online giving as a way to automate your tithes and offerings. Electronic giving offers convenience for congregation members or others who attend our church and provides consistency in cash flow for the church's operating funds. Even those who just want to donate for a special cause or give an honorarium or memorial contribution can do so without attending a service, stopping by the office or mailing the donation.
You can make one-time gifts online, or automate your regular offerings. Online giving allows you to use a link on the church website at any time to set up an automatic donation plan, change your donation plan, make a one-time donation, or view your past online giving.
Online giving can be done in either or both of two ways:
(please note - currently you cannot use iPhone to make online/mobile donations - we are working to attempt to correct this issue. You can still use PC or Apple computers to make online donations)
- Direct Debit Giving is used to automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account to the church's bank account. - Credit and Debit card giving lets you make offerings using a credit or debit card or other bank account. (credit and debit cards may not be accepted at this time through our third party processor - you can use a savings account or checking account)
