How can I give to the First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth?
We want to make it as easy as possible for you to give in the way that is most convenient for your situation. We offer a number of giving options:
FPCP has updated our online payment interface! Online giving is a fast, easy and secure way to make one-time or reoccurring payments. Online giving allows for a specific dollar amount of your choosing to be automatically deducted from a bank or a debit or credit card account. This method may be used for pledge and non-pledge giving, as well as paying for per capita, program fees (ex. retreats or VBS registrations), mission or memorial donations, etc.
**NEW** Give by App
Go to the App Store or Google Play and search for GivePlus Church to download the free app. Enter the church’s full name (First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth) OR the zip code (48170) and click <Search>. Select our church. You have the option to make a one time gift or you will be able to create a Give+ user account, including scanning or entering your credit/debit card or bank account information. Then select from the available Fund options, and enter the frequency of giving and your donation amount. You will be given the opportunity to review your donation, then click <Complete Donation>. That’s all there is to it!

**NEW** Give by Text

Give in Person On Sunday or By Mail
On Sundays, place cash or checks payable to FPCP (First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth) in the offering plate during any of our Sunday services. Writing your pledge box number on a pew envelope or using the numbered envelopes from your pledge box will ensure that your giving is recorded, and a statement of giving will be sent to you quarterly for tax purposes. Specific designations (special donations such as Colina de Luz, One Great Hour of Sharing, Christmas Joy, etc.) may be noted by a comment on the memo line. If you would like to commit to giving a regular amount and would like to receive a pledge box, please contact Stu Dodge (email or 734-453-6464 ext. 116).
You can also mail your check to the church office (please do not send cash through the mail). Address your envelope to:
First Presbyterian Church of Plymouth
Attn: Stu Dodge, Financial Administrator
701 Church Street
Plymouth, MI 48170
Give by Bill Pay
Most banks now offer online bill pay services to their customers, either free of charge or for a nominal fee. Please use the same address as for gifts by mail, and don’t forget to indicate in the memo of your payment the purpose for which your payment is intended.
Give Non-Cash Gifts
There can be tax benefits associated with contributions of stocks or other non-cash gifts. If you wish to give a gift of stock, mutual fund shares or some other type of non-cash gift, please contact Stu Dodge at (734) 453-6464 ext. 116 or at studodge[at]fpcp.net.
