There are two easy ways for you to make your contributions electronically. First United Methodist Church uses a safe, secure online provider for our online giving through our Shelby Arena software. You can click here to set up your online gifts. You can also set up a direct draft from your bank to the church. That option saves the church in transaction fees. Just like the rest of us, the church relies on a steady income to pay bills throughout the year. Questions? Call Carla Barnett or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why Give Online?
Here are some benefits to giving online:
*Intentionality—By having your tithe taken out of your account on a recurring basis, you are giving your “first fruits” to God. Online giving is a tool that will help you make giving a priority by scheduling your donations.
*Simplicity—You won’t have to worry about whether or not you remembered to turn in your tithe check. When you go out of town or miss a service for any reason, your tithe will continue automatically.
*Security—Giving online is even more secure than using checks, because electronic gifts cannot be lost or stolen.
*No Distractions—On Sunday mornings you can come ready to worship without the distraction of writing a check because you know your tithe is taken care of already.
*Easily Track Giving—Online giving is easier to track for our administrative staff and requires less processing since the information is automatically logged and deposited. This also allows you to easily access your up-to-date giving records online.
