We Grow as We Give

The death and resurrection of Jesus represent the most generous gift ever given – when the King of Glory gave up everything in order to reconcile us to God. Giving cheerfully, sacrificially, and consistently is a part of our worship. When we are generous with others, we remind one another of the great generosity of our God. If you would like to make a one-time gift or set up recurring automatic giving online, please follow the link below. Thank you for your generosity.

many ways to Give!

Several safe and secure methods of giving provide convenient ways to offer our tithes and gifts to God and financially contribute to First Church.

Sunday Services: Simply place cash or checks in the offering plate during the collection at any service. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes. Church giving envelopes are available for regular givers through the church office.

Direct Giving Plans: Direct giving may be set up to allow for a specific dollar amount to be automatically deducted each month from a checking or savings account. Or you may prefer online giving where a specific dollar amount can be deducted automatically from a major credit or debit card each month. These options help individuals and families remain faithful in their giving even when they are out of town or unable to attend a weekend service. 


To set up giving from your checking or savings account, a Direct Deposit Authorization Form is available here. Download, print, and submit to the church office with a voided check to set up your automatic giving.

For a one-time gift or to set up regular online giving with a major credit/debit card, you may use the donation button in the above section.

By Mail: Mail your donation to First Church at 68 N. Church St., Ephrata, PA, 17522. Be sure to include your name and address on the check or envelope so that donation credit may be provided for tax purposes.
