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.


Annual Giving/Pledges

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

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.


Above and Beyond…

Our church has several other donation categories that are not supported by our general budget.  These include:

  • The Memorial Fund 
  • Summer Programs 
  • Third Service Fund 
  • Trustee Fund 
  • Other:  Specify a category

Legacy Giving/Contingency Fund

Legacy giving is supporting the future Church through your assets or estate.  These gifts ensure that our church and its programs will be here for the next generation.  These gifts could be a bequest, stock, a gift of real estate or personal property, and annuity or a life insurance policy.  Legacy giving can bring a sense of blessing for the future of our church as well as providing other benefits to the donor, such as income tax benefits or reduced capital gains and estate taxes.  Gifts can be designated toward specific ministries according to the donor’s wishes.
