Ways to Give at FPCE

Online giving—one-time or recurring via credit/debit card or direct withdrawal from your bank account—is made easy through our website. Once set up, it’s quick to make a one-time gift or set up recurring gifts to support the general ministry or specific needs of the church. See the button above on this page, or contact the church office for more information.

Automatic monthly withdrawal set up through the church office – is a convenient and faith-filled way to support ministry at First Pres. You designate the amount, and your gift is made hassle free straight from your checking account on the 18th of the month. Best of all, when automatic withdrawal is set up through the church office, there are no bank transfer fees, which makes it more cost effective than other online options.

Traditional offering envelopes are available for cash and check contributions only upon request.
