Everything we possess is a gift from God. And in gratitude, we are called to offer back ourselves, our talents, and our gifts for the work of the Church. In doing this we fulfill Christ’s call to feed the hungry, care for the sick, clothe those who are cold and welcome in the stranger. Jesus’ simple reminder for us is this: For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also!
Making a Contribution by Text
Simply send a text message to [877-769-1961] with the amount you would like to contribute (example: 25). Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register. Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and debit or card information. Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt of your donation via email. For future giving, send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically! You can even text “repeat” to make it a recurring donation.
At the Walnut Creek United Methodist Church there are many opportunities for designated giving. Some examples of designated giving include support of our music program, sending our youth to Sierra Service Project, and our Extended Family Program. If you would like to make a designated gift, you can do so online.
Stock Options and Mutual Funds
There is a way to give to the Church that maximizes the amount you give and minimizes taxes associated with the gift. You can make gift transfers of stocks and mutual funds to the church once a year or multiple times throughout the year. The gift transfers can be applied toward your annual pledge to the church, or to help fund a special project, ministry, or event. Find out more about on our donating stock options/mutual funds page.
