Online giving is a convenient tool for anyone giving to Central United Methodist Church.  All information is secure and encrypted to protect you and your information. Features of our online giving program include:

Gifts executed online are safe. Banking and credit card information is stored on a secure server that meets all federal data encryption guidelines. CUMC currently uses the merchant account Vanco.


CUMC accepts designated gifts, provided the designated fund is already established.


Giving may be set on a recurring schedule, such as weekly, monthly, or quarterly.


CUMC will provide an annual giving statement to contributors prior to January 31 of each year.

Still not sure about giving online?


You can always give during our worship services or mail a check to the church office.  If you should have any questions or concerns we would be happy to address those. Feel free to call the church office at (828) 253-3316 or email Leslie McCreary, Church Financial Accountant.

What if my situation changes and I need to change my commitment?


Sometime unexpected changes occur. Your pledge can be adjusted at any time by calling the church office and asking to speak with the church accountant. Be sure to let our pastoral staff know of your situation so that they can pray for and support you during and difficulty.
