Why We 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 towards 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
Many in our church family make special year-end gifts to support our ministry. Because all gifts are subject to I.R.S. deadlines, please remember that all year-end gifts must be received in the church office or be postmarked by December 31 to be recorded on your annual contribution statement.
If you have any questions concerning giving to Christ United Methodist Church, please contact our Finance office at 601-914-7103 or email us at .
