God provides for the ministry of our church through your tithes and offerings and your gifts are honored with faithful stewardship, ethical business practices, and accountability to our lead team and denomination. It’s more than keeping the lights on and the gears turning; it’s about personal worship to God and handing Him back what He already owns…and it’s about lives changing through the transformative power of the Gospel in our region and beyond.

But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this?

Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”

~1 Chronicles 29:14

Online Giving is a safe and flexible option and is one of the easiest ways to give to First Church in Oberlin! This method allows you to give a one-time contribution, make special offerings or order flowers for the altar online conveniently from home using your checking or savings account, debit or credit card, or you can set up a recurring draft that will withdraw your contribution from your checking account automatically, weekly or monthly. You can specify the dollar amount and the time period you desire. This is the automated giving program of the United Church of Christ designed to make it easy for givers to give. Once you set it up, it automatically deducts your gifts from your checking, savings, debit or credit card account on one or more dates each month.
