First United Methodist Church
Ways to Give
We, as United Methodists, pledge to uphold the Church
with our prayers, our presence,
our gifts and our service.
Christ calls us to share our financial
blessings through tithes and
offerings to further
God’s work here on earth.
Each year our finance committee oversees our
stewardship campaign. During this time our members
and friends of Salem First pledge their monetary support
for the coming year. It is only through the generosity
of our church family that our
church is able to support its missions,
its staff and its overall operation.
Online giving enables you to give a specific dollar
amount electronically. The amount is securely and
automatically deducted from your checking or savings account,
or charged to your VISA or Master Card.
You can choose for these deductions to be made
as wanted, weekly, monthly or annually.
