Your Generosity Changes Lives
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
Indeed, God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” -John 3:16-17
Giving is a spiritual discipline.
We give to God in response to the good gifts God has blessed us with.
We are instructed in scripture to give a tenth, or a tithe, of our income to God.
At Fairview we offer three ways to give to back to God:
Cash or Check
When we have in-person worship we collect cash and checks during our worship service. It is not a mistake that we do this during worship. Giving to God is an act of worship. It is an acknowledgement that all we have comes from God. It is a way to demonstrate with our actions that we trust God.
You can mail in your check to:
Fairview United Methodist Church
3200 Chapel Hill Road
Columbia, MO 65203
Electronic Fund Transfer
We offer Electronic Fund Transfer. This option automates your giving. After filling out the form your tithe automatically be given. You choose the frequency of giving, the amount to give, and which ministry will benefit from your gift.
“Money is an excellent gift of God, answering the noblest ends. In the hands of God’s children, it is food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, raiment for the naked. It gives to the traveler and the stranger where to lay his head. By it we may be a defense for the oppressed, a means of health to the sick, of ease to them that are in pain. It may be as eyes to the blind, as feet to the lame; yea, a lifter up from the gates of death.”
