For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. – Jesus, Matthew 6:21
Jesus taught that how we handle our money is an indicator of our hearts, and Paul taught that we should give cheerfully and sacrificially in response to the love of God. God gives us all the great privilege of partnering with Him in what He wants to do in the world.
Your giving is an act of worship and makes possible the mission and ministries of Covington First United Methodist Church. Giving is a central theme of the Bible. At Covington First, we invite our members and regular attendees to give during our worship services or by mailing in their contributions. We are now pleased to add the option of giving electronically online.
Online Giving is a quick, easy, and secure option for those who desire to give to Covington First without using their checkbook, carrying cash, or preparing an envelope. In our digital age with secure online bill pay and online banking transactions, Covington First has chosen to make online tithing, giving and event payments available to those who are interested.
How can I take part in the offering during worship services?You can participate in the offering during the service by reflecting on the message that is being presented. You can also participate symbolically if you wish - there will be a simple “I Gave Online” card found in your pew which you can place into the offering plate during worship.
Initially, we will only be processing electronic payments from your bank account (you can use checking or savings).
