Giving to others is a life-giving practice.
Giving to the church supports all that we do: our ministries with the community, our ministries with children, youth and adults, the worship service, maintaining our beautiful building, and efforts to reach out to our new neighbors. If you wish to support all of that, please give to our General Fund.
If you wish to give specifically to missions, please include a note in for your donation's designation. We support a missionary overseas, as well as a variety of ministries in our community.
Dear Friends and Families of FUMC of Oak Park,
December 1 is #Giving Tuesday! Giving Tuesday is a global fundraising campaign to benefit not-for-profit organizations. This year, I’m asking you to join me in making a donation to First United Methodist Church of Oak Park.
The Covid pandemic has impacted each of us in some way – small or significant – which has caused us to rethink how we live our lives. An impact on our church has certainly been the inability for us to come together for church-related activities but a more significant impact has been a reduction in church contributions.
The Finance Committee has been successful in getting matching grants for donations received on Giving Tuesday and they continue to work to raise that bar. But it all starts with us.
I’m donating because the future of First United Methodist Church of Oak Park is important to me. Please give whatever you can. No amount is too small – every $1.00 you donate adds up to help us reach our $45,000 goal.
To donate, visit our website, https://www.firstumcoakpark.org/donate and click on the GIVE ONLINE button (minimum donation is $3.00). You can also mail a check to the church, FUMC of Oak Park, 324 S. Oak Park Avenue, Oak Park, IL 60302.
Thank you for your support!
Blessings for peace and good health,
