MEETING NEEDS, CHANGING LIVES
Your gift to First United Methodist Church will help us to continue to change lives for the better, in our church, in our community, and in our world. As we work to share the love of our Lord with others, your pledges and your gifts make a difference in the lives we touch.
Your pledge helps us to prepare our budget for the coming year. It allows us to know realistically how much ministry we can plan for the coming year. Your gifts provide for all of our ministries… ministries that change lives.
How do I pledge?
Gratitude Pledge Cards are available at the church office or online. The Pledge Card will be the statement of your pledge for the coming year. You may give weekly, monthly, quarterly or even yearly.
What is the right amount to give?
It is important to remember that we are only stewards of everything that we have. As you prayerfully consider your pledge amount, God will direct your decision.

IMAGINE NO MALARIA
Unlike many other diseases that are awaiting a cure, malaria was eliminated in the U.S. in the 1950s. However, in Sub-Saharan Africa, malaria continues to kill a person every 60 seconds. But there is hope! Imagine No Malaria is part of a global partnership and together with our partners, our generation can beat malaria once and for all.
Heifer International’s mission is to work with communities to end world hunger and poverty and to care for the Earth.
