We Aren't Meeting Face-to-Face Now on Sundays. How Do I Contribute to My Church?
Well, first of all, you can always mail your check to the church, or do it through online banking (see the article below this one).
But did you know you also can give directly online?
Bishop Scholl and the Greater NJ Annual Conference has made it possible through an online portal.
Online giving for your congregation. We have an online giving resource that will receive contributions directed for your congregation. When we receive contributions for your church, we will send you an accounting that includes the person’s name and address and amount. Gifts received through our online portal will be sent weekly to congregations. If this is a resource that will be helpful to your congregation during this challenging season, you may forward and share this with your congregation. The link for online giving is https://www.gnjumc.org/onlinegiving/.
Here's how it works. When you arrive at the link, fill in the information as you would for any other online purchase. At the bottom, you also will be asked to provide the following info:
Church #: 7057 Church Name: First UMC (Somerville) City: Somerville District: Raritan Valley Pastor: David C. Lehmkuhl
You then will be prompted to retain a copy of the receipt, as the Greater NJ Conference is required by law to request this. You might want to copy and past the online info into a Word file, but you also will receive a receipt through email. The emailed receipt most likely will be sufficient.
