Stewardship is an important part of our spiritual journey as we live out the Biblical concepts of giving through the church to fulfill God’s mission. In addition to offerings given during worship services, there are four ways to give:
You are able to make one-time donations or set up recurring contributions. Use Online Giving. Want to know more? Frequently Asked Questions about Electronic Giving. (NOTE: If you are using a VPN service ((virtual private network)) you must disable it while using the online giving in order to open the form.)
- Direct Debit Giving (EFT) –
Automatically transfer funds from your checking or savings account as a one-time or recurring payment to First United Methodist Church of Pittsburgh. When you use the Online Giving form, you can enter the routing number and account number for your checking or savings account. If you are not comfortable using the site or entering the information on the secure page, you can also use a paper EFT form that is available at the church.
- Credit or debit card via website –
Give via debit or credit card for recurring or one-time payments. Click Online Giving, then enter your gift and information (use “other” and enter a description if your item is not listed). After clicking “continue” the following page will let you enter your credit or debit card information.

NEW: Credit Card via Mobile App
Install the GivePlus app for iOS (Apple App Store) or Android (Google Play). The publisher is “Vanco Payment Solutions.” The fastest way to find FUMC is to enter the zip code, 15232. While giving as a “guest” without registering is possible, it is highly recommended that you create a login and sign in before donating. This is the only way to get an email receipt for your donation immediately. Of course, the church office can send you a receipt, but only during church office hours.
Please refer to the mobile app user guide for more detailed instructions.

NEW: Giving via Text
Send a text message to 833-597-0143. The message only needs to be the dollar amount (e.g. $10) that you want to give. The first time you text an amount, you will receive a URL to register and enter your credit card information, along with your email address and personal information. You will receive a confirmation for your gift via text as well as via email. We currently only process gifts toward current expenses via text. Other designated funds coming soon. Please refer to the Text Message user guide for more detailed information.
