Online Giving

For our best life, God calls us to tithe (give 10%). Most of us are not there yet. But we are growing one step each year toward that goal. Try giving 1% more of your income to God each year until you're giving 10% (tithing). Live abundantly! (John 10:10)

Online giving provides the flexibility for our members to give how they want to, regardless of day or time. You’ll be able to give your tithe and offerings in several different ways. We have links where you can give:

  • Click on General Fund to make a gift to the General Giving Fund. Recurring giving is available for this option.
  • Click on Building Fund to make a gift to Duluth First UMC’s Building Fund. Recurring giving is available for this option.
  • Click on Long-Term Facilities Maintenance to make a gift to the Long-Term Facilities Maintenance Fund. Recurring giving is available for this option.
  • Click on Memorial Gift to make a gift to Duluth First UMC in memory of a loved one.
  • Click on Miscellaneous Gift to make a gift to a specific ministry in the church.
  • Click on Christmas Gift to make a gift to this year's Christmas Gift Fund, where you can make your gift to the Stair Chair, Long-Term Facilities Maintenance, or both.

You can also give using the ShelbyNext Giving mobile giving app (see below). Part of the flexibility we are giving you is the payment method you use to give. You can also give with a credit or debit card with any of the giving mediums mentioned above.

Online giving helps all of us better develop a habit of giving regularly, and to be better stewards by affording you the opportunity to give on a regular basis. You will be able to set up recurring giving to both the General Giving Fund and the Building Fund. How many of you pay bills online? This is much the same, but it’s not just paying a bill.


Pray about how God is calling you to give and be a faithful and obedient steward in our mission of making disciples. Giving is truly a worship experience, and online giving can enrich that experience. Without it, we may miss out on an significant way of becoming more like Christ, both as individuals and as members of His Church.

We love the opportunity to be faithful in our tithe and offerings to God, who loves a cheerful giver.

For more information about the use of credit cards, debit cards, or to get more information about ACH withdrawal, please contact Jan Jones, Financial Assistant, by e-mail at or call 770-476-3776, ext. 113.
