Living as Jesus Teaches

Giving

Thank you for your support!

Giving is more than just a shared responsibility to support the ministries of the church; it is also a spiritual act of service to God. In giving, we grow to understand God as our provider and our role as stewards of what God provides for us. Together our gifts are multiplied to share the life changing power of Christ everywhere and every day.

Ways to give

Online

Online donations can be made to Christ Church via PayPal. Click the Give Online button below to be transferred to PayPal. While on the PayPal site you can indicate where you would like your donation to be directed by typing in the memo field. If the memo field is left blank, the donation will be allocated to the general church fund.

In Person or by Mail

During Sunday Service, offering plates are available in the sanctuary at each entrance. If you cannot make it to church, you can mail your giving to the church at 54 Bay Street, Glens Falls, NY 12801.

Bank Draft

A recurring bank draft is the easiest and most effective way to automate your giving. Once it has been setup, you may update or change your giving at any time simply by contacting the finance office. Plus, 100% of your gift goes to the ministries of Christ Church UMC because there are no processing fees.

To have your giving automatically deducted from your checking account, complete a Bank Draft Authorization form, attach a voided check, and mail them together to the church or just drop it in the offering plate on Sunday morning.
