Thank You for Your Gift

"Give and it will be given to you." -- Jesus, in Luke 6:38a

Christian stewardship in our United Methodist tradition involves sharing our prayers, 

our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness. This Giving page is dedicated

to sharing yourself with God and supporting the church and its ministries and missions.

Besides giving an offering at a worship service or sending directly to the Church Office, 

you may sign-up for automatic withdrawal (ACH) and/or click the link below to support First UMC

and its ministries and missions with your monetary gifts.

Your Giving at Work


First UMC believes in serving our local community in all of the ways that we are able.  We support opportunities that address food insecurity by collecting items for the Platte County Food Pantry, Columbus Rescue Mission and our Outreach Center's Blessing Box (east side of building).  In November & December, we collect items for Holiday Spirit, Inc. providing gifts and food items for local families.  


Why Give?

As people of God we give because God has given so much to us. God doesn't need our money, but God does want what it represents: our purposes, passions, and priorities. 

As God's people we can trust God with "all that we are and all that we have."  As Christians, we are invited to grow into sharing a Biblical tithe (10%) for church and charity. 

AND EVEN Globally

We give to make a Kingdom impact locally in the Columbus area as well as in the Great Plains Annual Conference and in our nation.  We support six special offerings in the UMC, including one for the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR).

As we are a global denomination, we celebrate the Great Plains partnerships with Nigeria, Haiti and Zimbabwe.  

What SCRIP Can Do For You!

The SCRIP program allows

First UMC the opportunity to fundraise all the time, without doing anything more than encouraging our members to use Scrip gift cards to pay for their everyday shopping. They don't have to spend money on things they don't need, make room for events in their busy schedules, or sell to friends

and relatives.
