Love God, Love People, Change the World


At Wayne Street UMC, we view giving as an act of worship. We return to God a portion of the financial resources He has blessed us with to further His work in St. Marys and around the world.

On Sunday
You may use an offering envelope for your gift. If you do not have a pre-assigned envelope, please include your name and address on the envelope used to assure it is recorded to your account. Please indicate how your gift is to be distributed, such as General Fund, Missions, Building Fund or other specific area. Undesignated gifts will be applied to the General Fund.

Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
E-giving is an easy way to assure your gifts are made as you have planned. To sign up, you can download the EFT form from our web site. Complete it, attach a voided check from the account drafted and drop it by the office or  mail it to the church. If you have any questions concerning EFT, please contact our church accountant at 419.300.8677.

By Mail
You may send your gift directly to the church:

Wayne Street United Methodist Church
130 N Wayne Street
St. Marys, OH 45885

Please make sure you let us know how you want your gift distributed (General Fund, Missions, Building Fund or other specific area). Undesignated gifts will be applied to the General Fund.

Donations of Stock
Save money on your taxes AND help your church grow. The donation of appreciated stock provides benefits to both you and the church. Contact the church office with any questions.  We can help you with the process.

Employer Matching Gift Program
Many companies will match charitable gifts, meaning your gift will count even more. Ask your employer if you think this option applies to you.

The Endowment Fund
Did you know that you can help your church in perpetuity? Your church trustees have established an endowment fund to help the church in four specific areas: building needs, education, missions and unrestricted. The income from your gift to our endowment fund will help our church in years to come. Please contact the church office for more information.

Wills and Bequests
Legacies and bequests to Wayne Street United Methodist Church help us fulfill the vision that God has for us. Please remember the church in your estate planning.
