Text Giving is an instant link tool used by the secure giving site of First United Methodist Church, Sweetwater TN. Use this tool for special one time giving. A secure online giving profile must be established to use this convenient tool. To establish a secure profile, follow the steps on the ONLINE GIVING page.

Text Giving allows you to make a one time gift, at the time of the text, for on-the-spot giving opportunities that will arise during worship or special events, such as: mission projects, Holston Homes for Children, special programs, etc.

Text Giving is safe, secure, and easy.  It is protected through the same security system used for all electronic giving here at 1st UMC.
