Online Donations are Here!

Most of us appreciate the ability to meet our obliga-tions to pay off credit card balances on the Internet or to take advantage of online, banking bill pay options. The same kind of benefit is available to members of First Church.

An online donation is a convenient, consistent way tohelp our church grow. The Reno First United Method-ist Church website now offers an easy way to manage your giving online! This type of giving is convenient and allows you to set up one-time and automatic re-curring contributions. These methods of donation ena-ble you to help the church meet its missions with either a credit card payment or with a transfer from a bank account. Donations can only be earmarked for the church's general fund or for activities related to the 150th anniversary celebrations; the Sesquicentennial.

Simply follow these easy steps:
1. Visit the church website at,
2. Click on the Donate Online button,
3. Click on the Create Profile button, then
4. Follow the onscreen instructions to create an online profile and to schedule your contributions.

Consider scheduling a recurring electronic contribu-tion today. It's easy! You will no longer need to write out checks and prepare envelopes every week. Even when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, your electronic contributions will continue to be received on an un-interrupted basis. Although the company handling these transactions, applies a small handling charge of less than 3%, donors are credited with the full amount of their contribution. Donors may opt to pay the service charge as well. If, rather than setting up an account profile for yourself, ask for and fill out a paper form. Then, we'll set one up for you.

Naturally, cash and checks are always acceptable and welcome.
