GIVING

Giving is not something we have to do, it’s something we get to do. Your generosity makes an impact for God’s kingdom in our city, country, and around the world.

 

 

 

 

Ways to Give

1. Give Online through our secure online portal. Here on our website, you can set up a one-time gift or a recurring gift, using your bank account or via a debit card.

 2. Text-2-Give: Send a text to 570-260-3535 with the amount you would like to contribute. Make sure to include the dollar sign before the amount. (Example: $25) Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and debit card information. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt via email. For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically.

3. Traditional Offering: You can fill out a check or give cash into the baskets at any Sunday service. There is also a monthly envelope mail service you can sign up for by contacting the church office at 570 – 322 – 3572.

4. Amazon Smile: is a website operated by Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organizations selected by customers. How does AmazonSmile work? When first visiting AmazonSmile, customers are prompted to select a charitable organization (First United Methodist Church) from almost one million eligible organizations.
