Giving Back to God

Giving our tithes and offerings reflects a grateful heart that wants to give back to God a portion of what He has given us. First United Methodist Church of Northville (FUMC) offers our church family and visitors a variety of giving methods. Your generosity is appreciated as it enables FUMC to continue its ministries locally and around the world.

Please contact us with any questions or for church app training and online giving account set up support.

You can create an authentic legacy that expresses your values, honors loved ones and supports the areas of the church that genuinely are most important to you and your family by giving to our Endowment Fund. Gifts and bequests remain intact and are invested to produce income that benefits the programs of the church yearly. In this way, the original gift will never be spent.
