Online Giving at Epworth UMC
What it is
Online Giving is a simple and consistent way to donate to the ministries of Epworth. It eliminates the need to write checks. And, when travel, illness or other circumstances prevent you from attending services, this program will allow your offerings to continue on an uninterrupted basis. This is convenient for the donor and very useful to the Church when income is received consistently.
Donors can sign up on the church website or use the form available in the church office. A profile will be created that will allow you to have complete access to your account. Touch or click the “DONATE” button and complete the form. This method may be used for Checking or Savings (Electronic Fund Transfer), Credit or Debit cards (MasterCard, Discover, and VISA).
Full control over giving
Donors may choose to make their donations weekly, semi-monthly, monthly, or one-time. You can access your account and review your giving, update information and make changes to your giving at any time.
