A Note from the Business Office

2 Corinthians 9:6-8

Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.

 Recurring Gift Giving

Now that we are starting the summer months, many of us are taking some time to go somewhere for vacation.  At the church, we continue with our ministries but know that our attendance and gift giving will typically dip down some. But you know what? That doesn’t have to be the case. Recurring Gift Giving is an easy way that people can give year-round without the worry that you have forgotten to write that check to the church. When people give consistently it supplies the church with a steady, reliable flow of gifts that help us to confidently run our ministries and allow us to be God’s hands & feet in our community and world. There are several ways that you can sign up for recurring giving through our ACH program or our on-line giving; either way is safe and convenient, and you can pick how often you would like to give. If you have questions about recurring giving, please contact Michael in the Business Office.

The following are ways you can give your monetary gifts to First UMC:

  • On-line giving on our website,
  • E-Offering (ACH) is a safe way to have your giving directly

  deducted from your checking or savings account –   contact the Business Office for an authorization form.

  • Direct bill payment through your own bank
  • Mail in gifts to 163 E. Wheeling St., Lancaster, OH 43130 or give during our worship service.

We are here to help! If you have any questions on any of the ways to give to our church, please call Sarah or Michael in the

Business Office at 740-653-3330.

Thrivent Choice Program: If you are a Thrivent Benefit member you have the opportunity to give to our church through their Thrivent Choice program. The Thrivent Choice program encourages their members to recommend where Thrivent Financial distributes an amount of it’s charitable grant funds. Members make this recommendation by directing Choice dollars to enrolled nonprofit organization such as First United Methodist Church. To find out if you are able to give to the church in this way, talk to your Thrivent Financial advisor.
