Your giving is changing the world


Each year, United Methodist Church - La Crescent impacts the lives of families and individuals in our community and across the globe by giving our time, talents, and treasures. Your support makes our mission to love God, grow together and reach the world a reality! There are a number of different ways you can financially support the ministries of our church. As we continue to gather in different ways, the ability to give in different ways is important.

Top 5 Ways to Donate to LUMC

1. Offering Plate - Cash & Checks

Cash and checks are the most common way people give to the church. Make checks payable to "La Crescent UMC." If you would like your cash gifts to be reflected on your giving statement, be sure to write your name and address clearly. Unless you designate a specific fund or ministry, all gifts are directed to the General Fund, which supports our ministries.  

2. Automatic Payment via ACH

To sign up for our EFT program, please download and complete the ACH Donation Form. Online giving will just be another option for sharing your gifts as we embrace a different way of congregating during these different times.

3. Wills and Endowments  

A charitable gift can be given to the church through your will or other estate plans. The gift can be used to honor the Lord from the financial increase He has given you during your lifetime (Proverbs 3:9-10) and to benefit La Crescent UMC in wonderful ways. This type of gift can also be helpful to appropriately avoid estate taxes. 

4. Online Banking Pay
This is a secure electronic service that allows customers to pay bills without having to write checks and mail them. Online bill payment usually is tied to a checking account from which funds are withdrawn electronically for payment of one-time or recurring bills. See your local bank or credit union for how to get this setup!
