The giving of your tithes and offerings to Valpo FUMC is an act of worship and supports our missionaries, provides biblical teaching for our children, keeps the lights and heat on in our church building, helps feed the hungry and so much more. We offer six easy ways in which you can offer financial support.

1. You can give in person by depositing your donation into the offering boxes located in the Fellowship Hall. You can also bring your offering into the church office during regular office hours or place in the secure drop box located on the wall by the Franklin Street entrance.

2. You can give by mail. Simply send your offering to First United Methodist Church of Valparaiso, 103 Franklin St., Valparaiso, IN.  46383, "Attn: Kate" or request offering envelopes.

3.  App it.  You can give through our church app.
