Welcome to The Covenant Circle
“We have received from those who have gone before us. On their shoulders we now stand. Let us help those in the future through our giving.” Anonymous
The Covenant Circle was formed in 1992 to recognize and thank members and friends of First United Methodist Church who ensure our church’s exciting future of praise and service through gifts to the Church or The First United Methodist Foundation of San Diego.
“The church is part of our family. We encourage other people to join the Covenant Circle and include the church in their estate planning, as well.” Ed Flom, past Covenant Circle Co-Chairman
Thank you Covenant Circle members!
Through planned giving, Covenant Circle members leave a tremendous legacy to the church. Over the years, planned gifts that matured, not only supported the Foundation with trust gifts providing interest only to be used for missions from now until forever, but also provided monies for pew renovation, campus signage, lighting and sound upgrades, and the video ministry, to name just a few of the legacy gifts provided by those who have gone before us. We extend our grateful thanks to all Covenant Circle members who have provided for the future of our Church, remembering “A planned gift today is a tithe for tomorrow!”
Covenant Circle Luncheon
Each year, we invite our members and prospective members of The Covenant Circle to a very special luncheon and program. We like to thank and recognize your generosity and to let you know how endowment funds are being used and to enjoy a relaxed social occasion together. During the luncheon we welcome new members and honor the members who passed in the previous year.

Each year, members and prospective members of The Covenant Circle are invited to attend this very special luncheon and celebration. Another special portion of the program was a time to honor members who passed in 2012 and recognize the new members who have chosen to include the Covenant Circle in their planned giving efforts.
