As Christians, we affirm the belief that people are stewards or managers of God's gifts. We believe that God has gifted us with our time and our resources, and that we are to share a portion of those things which God has entrusted us.
Ways to Give
It is through the general fund that the church supports ministry to its members and guests. Administrative costs such as clergy and staff salaries, monthly utilities and age-level ministries are supported through the general fund. Also through the general fund, our apportionments are paid into our connectional system that allows us to support the United Methodist Church as a whole.
The God Box offering is given over-and-above our regular giving to support FUMC Pearland's many Missions Ministries. God Box funds can be dropped into the "God Box" located near the altar during worship services or given to the church office with the designation "God Box". To learn more about the ministries that this fund supports, be sure to visit our Missions page.
FUMC Employee Appreciation Fund
This fund will facilitate the Christmas bonuses and will be divided among pastors, program, administrative and support staff – in short, by all employees who, in their own way, make FUMC Pearland a better place for you. You can give all year long to this fund as it will also be utilized throughout the year for smaller recognition events. Give here.
Permanent Endowment Fund
Founded in December 2005, First United Methodist Church's Permanent Endowment Fund was established to expand the ministry outreach of the church and safeguard its future through charitable gifts that provide financial support and a living memorial. The decision to give to the foundation is a spiritual commitment of loyalty and love. It is a way to continue giving and supporting First United Methodist Church, Pearland, now and into the future.
