Online Giving Instructions

Thank you for considering making a commitment to and supporting the ongoing ministries of First Congregational Church, UCC. Your generous gift is instrumental in ensuring that our shared work and ministry meet the needs of our community and beyond. 

In addition to offering our gratitude for your contribution, we share with you the instructions on how to share your contribution using our online giving platform. 

To contribute electronically, CLICK HERE and you will be directed to the giving page of our website. 

There you will find the online giving form which looks like the image to the right.

If your contribution is for your pledge, you need not move from the “Please put this toward my PLEDGE” option already visible. However, if you are wanting to use the online giving platform for other contributions, you may choose one from the dropdown menu accessed by clicking on the arrow to the right.

The next section gives you the option of making a one time contribution or setting it up as recurring. For your pledge to be made on a regular basis, click the arrow to the right and choose a frequency option.

Once you have chosen your frequency option, it is time to determine the source of your payments. You may give either using a Credit/Debit Card or by having an ACH withdrawal come from your banking account. Please note that First Congregational Church, UCC pays a higher percentage of the amount for processing when you use a credit card as compared to an ACH withdrawal. 

Now that you have filled out these fields, it’s time to determine the dollar amount you wish to have contributed at the frequency you have chosen. Return to the top section of the giving box to enter this amount. 

The next screen will ask you for your payment information.

Please note, when you complete your payment information you will be given an

option to cover the processing fee. Simply click the box to the left if you wish to choose this option and cover the fees on behalf of the church. 

After deciding whether to cover the processing fees or not, simply click the GIVE bar and the transaction will be processed. 

If you have any questions along the way, please do not hesitate to reach out. We will be happy to assist.

Know that the amount you set, as well as the frequency, are able to be changed at any time. We fully understand that “life happens” and the contributions we pledge to the ministries of the church may need to be adjusted from time to time. Simply let us know if that is ever the case and we will work to make the adjustment with you.

Again, thank you so much for your continued dedication and commitment to our shared ministries. Because of your generosity, and the generosity of others, we are able to live more fully the love and justice of Jesus in our community and the world. 

Because of you… we are changing lives!
