GIVING

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

 

 

 

 

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.

Second Mile Giving

September & October: Family Promise

Due to the coronavirus, Helping Hands is not currently operational. However, Williamsport still has people in need, perhaps even more so as the effects of this pandemic are drawn out. Our second mile giving will bless many people in need through the local ministry of Family Promise. Many families who have been hit particularly hard in this season have been helped and protected from homelessness through the work of Family Promise, which is why First Church is dedicating our second mile giving to their support of our community. Thank you for how you’re caring for others in our community in this time.
