Alternative Christmas Giving

Christmas gifts for family members, friends or co-workers can be hard to find! An alternative that will be meaningful throughout the year is a donation to one of several Mission ministries of First United Methodist Plano. 

Donations of all amounts are accepted. When making an online gift, select "FUMC Plano Missions" in the drop-down menu then denote the specific mission (see below) in the "optional memo" space. If giving to more than one mission, simply click on the "add more +" link.
