Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:15)


At First Methodist, we believe that we all have gifts to share. We share those gifts in two ways. The first way is a spiritual discipline of tithing, which is giving a percentage of your income to the Church. This monetary gift, along with offerings, supports the mission and ministry of our church in the world.

You can securely give online here. We thank you for your support. You can also click here to learn more about the spiritual discipline of tithing and find out what parts of the Church’s work are in need of special offerings.
Service is the other area where your gifts can bless the world. First Methodist supports many missions in McKinney, across Texas, and all around the globe. You can help us both by giving financially to our missions and by volunteering to work in our community. Although our current in-person volunteer opportunities are limited during the COVID-19 pandemic, please visit our volunteer page to learn what you can do right now and fill out a volunteer interest form to be contacted when new opportunities arise.

In whatever ways you choose to give and serve, you can share your light. Together, we will share the heart of Christ from the heart of McKinney.
