There are three ways to give financial contributions to the Mission and Ministry of Pasadena UMC:
1. Place gifts in the offering plate on Sunday
OR mail your check to the church.
2. Schedule a direct payment with your bank.
3. Electronic giving or e-giving using one

General Fund: Used to care for the mission and ministry of Pasadena from feeding the hungry to keeping the lights on.
Care Corner: Used to purchase supplies for the food pantry and to care for ministry with person experiencing hardship.
Memorial Fund: Given in memory of loved ones with a specific purpose. When finalizing your gift, you will be prompted to indicate to whom the gift is being given in memory of. Please complete this step to ensure the gift your loved one is honored appropriately.
Please note: If you are giving to the Memorial Fund, please let us know to whom the donation should be dedicated.
WHEN ASKING YOUR BANK TO FORWARD YOUR DONATION
Usually you would take these steps:
Establish Pasadena United Methodist Church as the Payee.
If you have offering envelopes, provide your bank with your offering envelope number, either as an "account number" or in a "memo" option within the payment statement.
Verify that the bank has the correct church address and phone number [61 Ritchie Highway, Pasadena, MD 21122; (410) 647-3090, firstname.lastname@example.org].
You can often choose a “recurring” option.
Relax and enjoy the service!
Some banks charge for this service. Please verify with your bank directly about any associated costs.
Most banks allow you can create a transfer through the bank's website or by phone. No coordination, notification, or action by PUMC is required. Our Financial Secretary will receive notification of your fund transfer to ensure proper annotation to your giving records for the giving statements.
Why give electronically?
I wondered: How can I keep up with my offering when I’m not in the pew?
E-giving is the answer. I used to forget my checkbook or envelopes, now I don’t worry. My check arrives at the church twice a month whether I’m in church that Sunday or not. Working with my bank, I was able to use their FREE bill pay service to establish a bi-weekly payment to the church. Transfers can be created on a recurring basis: weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly. It is completely within my control and quicker for me to cancel or change if my circumstances require.
