            GIVING
       "Give and it will be given to you." -- Jesus, in Luke 6:38a
  
Christian stewardship involves sharing our prayers, presence, service, witness, and gifts. The Giving page is dedicated to sharing yourself with God, the church and more by monetarily supporting the church and its ministries and missions.
 
Besides giving an offering at a worship service or directly in the church office, here are some more ways to support the church and its ministries and missions with your monetary gifts:
 
 
Automated donation by bank withdrawal: For more information, or to set up an automated electronic withdrawal from your bank account, please call Sharon Zobel at 402-564-8463, or click on the following link to notify her of your interest, and she will contact you.   
                       
   

Automated donation by paycheck contribution: For more information, or to set up an automated electronic contribution from your paycheck, please call Sharon Zobel at 402-564-8463, or click on the following link to notify her of your interest, and she will contact you.
 
.
For any giving, you can direct it to general (budget) ministries, special ministries or missions, building fund, endowment fund, etc.
 
 
Endowment Foundation
 
It is with pleasure that I recommend the Columbus First United Methodist Endowment Foundation to you. This church has been a blessing in the lives of my family, as I am sure it has been to yours. The church has been there to teach our young ones the stories of Jesus. It was where we have shared in the Bread and the Cup and have been baptized. The church is where our married lives began and where our loved ones were laid to rest and remembered. The church has served this community and the world through mission work.
 
You and I have the opportunity to help ensure the work of the church goes on even after we are gone. Our gifts to the Endowment of this church will provide the dollars needed for many of the wonderful programs currently happening and new programs that may emerge in the future. Our gifts can be directed for something very specific, such as care and upkeep of the church facilities or as broad as you desire within the ministry of the church. The goal of the Endowment is to establish a permanent fund and only the interest from that fund would be used for projects, thus providing perpetual gifts to the church. You will be able to give to the church and help provide ministry to generations yet to come.
 
Thank you for taking time to consider this very special way of giving to the church. Please review the Endowment Fund brochure for more information and email or call me at the church office, or contact a member of the Endowment Committee.
 
Grace and Peace,
Rev Cindi Stewart                                           Come Grow With Us!

Scrip
 
When planning your next shopping trip, consider making purchases with FUMC Scrip Cards. When you buy locally using Scrip Cards, businesses contribute donations back to the church. Scrip Cards are available at worship or from the church office.  
 
 
 
  
   
Team National Shopping Site 
 
The Team National Shopping Website works just like using Scrip except, there are over 400 national businesses to choose from. Each of the national websites give varying amounts of rebates directly to Columbus First United Methodist Church, depending on what each person purchases. Just like Scrip, there is no additional cost to the purchaser. 
 
 
                                                                                                                                                                                                     
                                                                                              
 
Remember, we need to give because Christ has given his all for us.  And we are thankful!
