Online Giving

Your gift to Woodlawn UMC shapes people to be the Heart, Hands and Feet of Christ in the world!


One-time gifts are simple to set up from your bank account or you can use a debit or credit card.

Recurring gifts can be set up on a schedule and provide flexibility to track and manage your giving. Setting up a bank transfer will save the church significant credit card fees. We discourage the use of credit cards if you will incur debt in the process.

The church is charged fees for each online gift as follows:

Bank Account: 0.1% of donation amount

Debit or Credit Card: 2.75% of donation amount

Example: A $400 gift from your bank account would incur a 40 cent fee.  The same $400 gift from your debit or credit card would incur an $11 fee.

For assistance, please email Woodlawn’s Finance Department or call (316) 788-1507.

Why We Give:

If you think about it, everything that we have, is a gift.  It’s true that we work to earn our income, but without the gifts of health, time, and opportunity, how would it be possible to earn money? 

When we begin to see everything as a gift from God who is the Creator of all that is, we start to feel gratitude for what God has provided.  And with gratitude comes the desire to give.  To return a small portion as a way of saying “thank you.”

When we give our tithes (10% of income) and offerings, we demonstrate in a real way our love for God and our neighbors.  Each fall Woodlawn asks members to make a promise to support our church's ministry and mission in the coming year. We do this because:

  • All we have is a gift from God, and giving is an act of worship.
  • At Woodlawn, giving is also an expectation of membership. The church never specifies how much an individual should give, but hopes that each person will prayerfully determine what percentage of their income they are willing to give as a faithful act of discipleship.
  • Finally, Woodlawn is able to plan accordingly for worship, educational programs and groups, pastoral care, missions and facilities after determining the giving level for the coming year.
