give

Here at First Church, you can support the work of the church by giving in a variety of ways. Many find that online giving meets their needs. Setting up a recurring gift or automatic draft is today's way of giving the first fruits which we read about so often in the scriptures. No matter how you give, please remember that you do not give to the church. Instead, you give to God through the church to help accomplish God's purposes in our world today.


Ways to give now, on a regular basis, and in the future:

  • To make a one-time offering, please click GIVE NOW to be redirected to our online giving form.
  • To schedule weekly, monthly, quarterly, or annual contributions (or any scheduled contribution), please set this up through your online financial institution and use our mailing address:  First United Methodist Church, PO Box 926, Newton, NC 28658. Or, you can set up recurring payments through our online giving page by clicking GIVE NOW and choosing your donation frequency.
  • Sharing assets such as stocks, bonds, and mutual funds. Please contact our financial director for more information about how to transfer these types of assets to First UMC.
  • Giving in the future is also a wonderful way to ensure the ministries of the church have the resources it needs by giving through wills, estates, and trusts. Please contact your estate planner for more information on how you can provide for future ministry needs through this type of gift.
