When you donate to First Church you help:
- UMCOR Hurricane/Flood Relief (Mission & Outreach Fund) Recent hurricanes (August 2021) have caused major flooding and destruction. If you would like to help, please write a check and put hurricane relief in the memo line. You may also donate online on our church website. 100% of your donation will go directly to relief efforts.
- Feed the hungry. (Mission & Outreach Fund) Every month we prepare and serve over 300 meals for those in need in our community.
- Spread the news of God’s love (Mission & Outreach) as we help support Patrick Booth, a UMC missionary serving in Cambodia.
- Those who are experiencing disasters. (UMCOR) Through the United Methodist Committee on Relief, long-term recovery aid is made available.
- Those who are homeless. (Mission & Outreach) We not only provide a monthly meal at the Central Iowa Shelter and Services but we donate to the women and children’s shelter through Hawthorn Hill.
- Support the various programs (Discipleship) at First Church such as learning opportunities, children’s Christian education, worship, fellowship etc.
- Provide space (Building & Grounds) for the Mabaan South Sudanese United Methodist Church that meets here at First Church.
Why Give to First Church?
Here at First Church one of our Pathways to Discipleship is giving. We believe that when we give we are able to participate in the work to which God has called us.
Thank you for giving!
All we have is a gift from God…
We’re called to give our financial resources. God uses our financial gifts to redeem and transform this world.
