Our hope is to remove as many barriers to giving generously as we can by offering several ways to give to Fishers UMC:
Traditional giving through cash and checks
Placing Cash and Checks in the offering plate during Sunday morning worship will continue to be at the forefront of our ministry support as has always been the case.
Electronic funds transfer
We currently have in place ways for people who choose to give electronically through electronic fund transfers from their bank accounts. This can be done by:
---Downloading a withdrawal authorization form, filling it out and returning it to the Church Office. These forms are also available in the Church Office or Connection Central.
Fishers UMC has an account with the Givelify, a company devoted to helping non profits collect donations. You can either access givelify by:
---Downloading the Givelify app for your smart phone
---Signing up for an account on Givelify.com
On either platform, after you have created an account, search for Fishers UMC and donate the amount you choose with either a debit or a credit card.
This is a brand new option to give during the offering portion of worship for anyone that prefers using a bank or credit card. We realize that the way congregations prefer to give has evolved over the years. 80% of people now prefer to use a card over any other method, so we also want to offer this new option that many of you might find the most convenient.
When the offering basket is passed, those who choose to use the Pod can simply swipe a bank or credit card through a slot on one of its sides. –Each side will transact a different gift amount: $10; $25; $50; or $100. You can slide more than once to give other totals if you prefer. After you have swiped your card, a blue light will blink indicating that your donation is complete.
