Giving options


  1. Online giving: Church leaders have been working  for months to set up online giving through VANCO.   To give on your computer, got to the the VANCO site and follow the instructions.   
  2. To  give using your Smartphone: download the GivePlus+  app (From Google Play or the App store), search for Mercer UMC by the  zip code 16137 or in Mercer, PA, and create an account or give as a  guest.    
  3. See  if your bank offers a “BillPay” option. You can set up the church as a  regular payment they make, and the bank generates an electronic check  and sends it via USPS (United States Postal Service).  Some banks don’t  charge for this, and may even cover the postage! 
  4. Send your check in the mail.  It might not feel as  spiritual, but God looks at the heart (1 Samuel 16:7) 
  5. If  you would rather remain anonymous in your giving  (Matthew 6:3-4), cash is not the best route.  Other options include EFT  (electronic Fund Transfers), money orders, etc., but do incur a cost in  preparing.
