Monetary Giving... To the Glory of God
- Online Giving - Online giving is the process where you authorize your bank to deduct a specified amount from your checking account without having to write a check. Our system makes this process simple and secure. You create your online profile, and then you can login and make changes at any time. Please see our frequently asked questions below or click the link to the right to start giving online.
- Cash or Checks - We will provide with envelopes that have an unique number so that you will receive credit for your donations. You can put the envelope in the offering plate or send it directly to the church office
- UMC Market - UMC market is The United Methodist Church’s program to donations through online shopping. UMC Market has been vetted and proven by The United Methodist Church’s General Council of Finance and Administration, GCFA, as a new way to create income-streams to our local churches and ministries. All donations acquired through the member’s shopping goes directly to our churches or UMC organizations. If you shop online, we encourage you to click the link to the right and explore the UMC Market. You can register and choose your church to have a portion of your sales be donated back to your church. It is an easy way to help the church, while you shop.
Online Giving Frequently Asked Questions:
What are my giving options when I give online?
Currently you can just donate to the General Operating Budget. If you wish to donate to the Endowment Fund, the Pastor's Discretionary Fund, the Youth Mission Fund, or any other project or fund you will need to use cash or check.
Can I schedule recurring donations?
Yes! This system takes the hassle of having to remember to write out checks out of the way. You set it up once and then it just happens for you each month on the date you decide.
What if I change banks or want to adjust the amount of my contribution?
When you sign up online for this service, you create a username and password. So if you change banks or want to adjust your contribution amount, you would login and change what needs changed.
Can I try this just once?
Yes you can try it just once.
When is my donation charged to my account?
You will choose the date that you want it charged to your account. You need to know that it takes 6 business days to be credited to the church, so if you want credit in a certain month for a donation, please do not wait until the end of the month to make a donation. It would appear on your church giving statement on the next month.
Do I pay additional fees to give online?
No! We would never charge our members for this service. We would like you to know that we get charged if you use your debit or credit card, so please use your checking account. If you must use your debit or credit card, please consider increasing your donation to cover the 2.75% that we will be charged on your donation.

Do I have to sign up to online giving myself? Or do you have a form I can fill out?
We do have forms in the office if you do not want to sign up online. You just come into the office with a voided check and we can get you signed up.
Is this process secure?
Yes! We partnered up with Vanco. Vanco has been in this business for many years and has many safeguards in place to ensure that all of your account information will be secure.
