Gifts, Tithes, Offerings
For where your heart is, there your treasure will be also. - Matthew 6:21
Giving in Memory or Honor
Donations are a special way to celebrate a life, birthday, anniversary, special occasion or to just say thanks, and they serve as genuine testimonies to others!
Memorials will support the specific ministry the family has designated unless you request something different. Honorariums will support the ministry area of your choice as indicated on the donation form. Gifts without a specific designation will go toward the FUMCR General Operating Budget to support all ministries of the Church.
A note will be sent to the person you have honored or to the family of the deceased notifying them of the gift. This note will not give amounts of gifts, but will let them know a gift has been made in their honor/memory. In addition, gifts from church members will be listed in the First Connections magazine. Due to editing and printing deadlines, your gift may not be included in the next published magazine, but will be in the following one.
