Giving at the Water's Edge Faith Community

As a congregation of First United Methodist Church in San Diego, we encourage all of those who are part of our church family to give not of obligation but out of gratitude to God. Your gifts allow God's love to be poured out in the community.


There are many ways to financially support the ministries of First Church, including one-time gifts, recurring online giving, and text-to-give.

  • Pledge... Annual commitment of giving
  • Online Giving… Donate to the church operating fund or make a Special Gift to the designation of your choosing.
  • Text-To-Give... Text MYCHURCHGIFT to 73256 and follow the link in the reply.

Give Conveniently Online – Even When You Can’t Attend Service
