  • Through your bank

    Want to make a one time or recurring contribution to FUMC directly from your bank account? Access your on-line banking and a bill pay service. 

    Set up a "bill to pay" to FUMC, 612 Poyntz, Manhattan, KS 66502. The bill pay service will take it from your account, write the check to the church and mail it for you. 

    If you desire your contribution to go to a specific ministry area, have the bill pay service write on the check which ministry area it should be credited to i.e. Operating Budget, Church Improvements, Building Fund, Children's Ministry, Youth Ministry, Change The World, Missions, Pastor's Emergency Discretionary Fund, Congregational Care, etc.

    If nothing is written on the check it will automatically go toward the Operating Budget.

  • End of the year contributions

    As December approaches each year, we are reminded how important our continued financial support is to FUMC and all of the various ministries throughout the church. Early December you will receive a record of your giving January thru November 16. Please look it over and make sure our records match. You will receive a year-end statement mid-January for tax purposes. Please remember anything that is not specifically indicated will be credited to the General Operating Budget.

    Also, due to IRS regulations, all contributions for the year MUST be in the church office by 3:00 pm December 31 (or the last business day of the year) or postmarked by December 31. If you have questions about finances please contact Mary Jane Adams in the church office at 785-776-8821 or

  • Stock transfers

    If you are planning to make a contribution to the church with a stock transfer please make these transfers timely (please do not wait until December 31) so they can be recorded in the year they are made. Contact Mary Jane Adams in the church office

    at 785-776-8821 or with questions.
