ONLINE GIVING

YOUR GENEROUS GIFTS ALLOW RIVER FALLS UMC TO CONTINUE TO FULFILL OUR MISSION

God is extremely generous, the source of love, light and every good gift. We are called to serve a giving God with the same mercy, justice and compassion Jesus taught. 

 

Extravagant Generosity is not only about offering tithes or pledges. It is also about offering our time and talents to nurture our faith and world community, just as God nurtures us. 

 

The contributions necessary and the opportunities available to keep our church vital are many. Gratitude for giving and receiving is an integral part of a strong faith community.

 

Our Church is a non-profit 501 (C) (3) tax-exempt organization, meaning gifts to our Church are tax deductible. 

OTHER WAYS TO GIVE

 

STEWARDSHIP

Offering stewardship is not about church budgets. Rather, stewardship is about God’s mission; stewardship is a way of life. Giving is not an issue of how much money the church needs, but rather what we share to create and sustain lives of faith. 

 

Giving is about God’s abundance and how we respond with thanksgiving. 

LEGACY GIVING

With a Legacy Gift, you can help to build River Falls UMC’s future. Legacy gift arrangements enable you to blend your financial and estate planning goals with your charitable objectives. A planned gift of any size may have important financial benefits for you, your heirs and River Falls UMC.

NOISY CAN

In addition to our usual Sunday tithes and  offerings, noisy can collections allow our faith community to bring in their loose change or dollars to support a variety of programs needing financial assistance.

GIFT AND TALENT INVENTORY

 

Each year we invite all who attend our Faith Community to fill out a gift and talent inventory. This inventory is how the Ministry Team and other groups find folks whose passion and or gifts are in a particular area to do the work of our church. We encourage folks to reach beyond their comfort zone to do something they have never done before but have had a desire to try. This is another form of extravagant generosity, the sharing of our time and talents.
