Ways to Give
We encourage all of those who are part of our Church family to give – not out of obligation but out of worship. We believe that God has given us everything that we have. As we give, we reflect His character and His generosity toward us. At Christ United, we believe that giving is an act of WORSHIP! Your giving helps our ministries accomplish our mission to restore lives, families, and community by connecting to Jesus Christ.
Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. 2 Corinthians 9:7
Simple and secure. Give a single gift or schedule recurring giving using your bank account, debit card, or credit card.
Give in person
Place your cash or check gift into the offering plate or basket during any worship service or mail to: Christ United Methodist Church, 6000 Old Canton Rd, Jackson, MS 39211.
Give by text
To donate by text, simply text the amount you would like to give to our number 601-202-4122. The first time you donate by text, you will be asked to supply your payment method (credit card, debit card, or bank account).
give by stock & Mutual funds
Some members of our congregation prefer to make their annual gift in one payment and utilize a stock transfer to accomplish the annual gift. To make a gift of stock to the church, contact our Finance office ( or 601-914-7103) for transfer information.
give by ira distributions
In 2015 Congress made permanent the ability for eligible persons to donate directly from their IRA instead of taking a required minimum distribution. This benefits you because you do not have to claim the distributed funds as income as long as the distribution is made directly to the Church. Contact your financial advisor to arrange an IRA distribution.
give by year-end gifts
We are seeking to be the hands and feet of Jesus through your generosity, especially as we end 2020. We humbly ask that you consider making a year-end financial contribution to Christ United. We are grateful for these gifts and count on them to end the year strong. Please be aware that IRS regulations require that all gifts be received no later than December 31 for you to receive contribution credit for 2020. If you are mailing a contribution, it must be postmarked no later than December 31. If you are giving online, the confirmation date must be no later than December 31. If you have specific questions, please contact our Finance Department at .
Stock & Mutual Funds: Some members of our congregation prefer to make their annual gift in one payment and utilize stock transfer to accomplish the annual gift.

Qualified Charitable Distribution: Eligible persons can now donate directly from their IRA instead of taking a required minimum distribution.
