How Do I Give?

On Sundays at First Church

You may place a check or cash in the offering plate when it is passed in the pews during worship services. You can use the envelopes found in the pew pockets, or request your own personalized giving envelopes from Paul Anacki, Financial Administrator.

Mail or drop off your check to the church office

First Church , 104 S. Pineapple Ave, Sarasota 34236. Some members find it most convenient to write a monthly check to the church as they write checks for other monthly bills and household expenses. Payments using an online bill paying service should also be sent to church office.  Please indicate your envelope number.

Non-Cash Contributions

When making a charitable gift contribution, you may want to consider other assets as well as cash. Some assets are used for gifts because of their associated tax benefit. Notable examples are assets of long-term appreciated holdings such as Publicly Traded Securities, Closely-Held Stock, Personal Property, Charitable Lead Trusts, Appreciated Real Estate, Gifts-in-Kind, and Deferred Gifts. Please review these opportunities for gift giving to First Church with your tax advisor.

Give Online

To make giving more convenient, the church has established online giving enabling anyone to contribute to the missions and ministries of the Church with a credit or debit card.
We do not encourage anyone to enter into debt in order to make a contribution.
