Thank you for exploring the giving options at First United Methodist Church of Clarion.  Giving is one of the ways as church members we vow to support the many ministries of our church.  There are many ways you are able to give your financial contributions—including Smart Giving options such as online giving, texting, etc., all of which are explained below.

Each Sunday during our morning worship service, the traditional method of passing the plate is observed. If this is your preferred method of giving, and you would like credit for your gift, please use the envelope provided to members or obtain generic envelopes and fill it out with your name, address, and amount. If you are not receiving envelopes and would like them sent to you, please contact the church office at 814-226-6660.

Electronic Giving is a convenient and secure way to provide consistent financial support to your church.  Electronic donations can be made by checking, savings, credit card or debit card. This option allows you to:

  • Set up and manage your recurring donations

  • Make one-time contributions

  • View your online giving history

Please consider scheduling a recurring electronic contribution today. It’s easy!  You will no longer need to write out checks and prepare envelopes every week.  Even when you travel, or when illness or some other circumstances prevent you from being able to attend services, your electronic contributions will continually be received on an uninterrupted basis.


You can make a contribution to First United Methodist Church even with a quick text message!

Simply send a text to 814-275-6070 with the amount you would like to contribute.  Make sure to include the dollar sign before the amount.  (Example: $25.)  Within a few minutes, you’ll be sent a text with a link to register.  Click on the link and enter your cardholder name and credit or debit card information.  Once your registration is complete, you will receive a text verification and a receipt via e-mail.  For future giving, simply send a text with the amount you wish to give, and it will process automatically!


We have also partnered with AmazonSmile to benefit our church.  A percentage of every purchase you make is donated back to the church!  Go to and search for our church’s name, or simply click HERE to register your current Amazon account.
