GIVING

We encourage giving as an act of worship.


WHY GIVING?

TAKING THE STEP OF FAITH

When you participate in online giving, you decide in advance to faithfully give!

SIMPLIFYING YOUR LIFE

Online giving is simple, easy, and also reduces weekly/monthly check-writing chores.

HELPING THE CHURCH TO SERVE OTHERS

When you participate in online giving, you’re also helping to streamline  administrative overhead costs – thus, putting more of your dollars to work in the ministries.


Give in order to be blessed. It is, in our vision, a part of our worship to God. He wants us to understand the blessings that come to those who give with a cheerful heart.

WAYS TO GIVE

WORSHIP SERVICES

During the weekend services we have a time of dedicating our tithes and offerings to God in prayer. This is an opportunity to give to God during the service.

MAIL

You can also mail your tithes and offerings. Please take time to pray, then simply place your check within an envelope, include the church address (Ministries Center & Church Office:  612 N. Newsom, Mineola, Texas  75773) , add a postage stamp and drop in the mailbox.

GIFTS IN KIND

If you have real property, assets, or something you want to bequeath as a gift, please contact the church to discuss ahead of time either by e-mail: paulfumc@suddenlinkmail.com or by phone: 903.569.5426

ONLINE

It is now possible and convenient to give online. Once again, consider gathering together as a family to dedicate what you give in prayer, asking God to accomplish spiritual results – especially that many would come to faith in Jesus Christ.


Church with Generosity

We at First UMC – Mineola have a legacy of generosity, the evidence of which is found in the number of ministries that allow us to minister to the people of our community.  What’s our motivation?  We are Believers, commanded by Jesus to make all of our resources available for God’s use.  Your gifts are always appreciated!  There is a misconception that only “substantial” gifts are useful to God but I want to assure you that every gift, large or small is “substantial”. Our giving, in fact, is a sacrifice of praise, an offering to God, an opportunity for us to express our thanks to God for the countless blessings He has given to us.  In an effort to create more opportunities for people to administer their tithes and offerings, we have initiated online giving through a secure website known as Realm.

You now have the ability to give by debit or credit card online and at your convenience.
