Giving to the Church

While we never expect anyone to give to First UCC, we do appreciate your generosity and support for the church. If you are interested in giving, the options are listed below. If you have any questions, contact our Finance Manager, Derek Melby, at [email protected]


There are a number of giving options available:

Cash in the Offering Plate

This is a good solution if you wish to give anonymously. Any cash given this way would not be attributed to you towards your pledge or for tax purposes.

Check in the Offering Plate

This way you can be sure that the church receives your gift and it will be attributed to you. Please make sure that you write in the memo line what the gift is for (e.g. local pledge/OCWM pledge/other).

Check in the Mail

You may also choose to post a handwritten check to the church. The mail can be a bit slow sometimes. As with all checks, please make sure that the relevant fund is mentioned on the memo line.
The address of the church is:
300 Union Street,
Northfield, MN, 55057

Check Sent from Bank

You can ask your bank to send an electronically printed, but still physical, check to the church. Your bank may charge a fee for this service. Please ask the bank to include a fund name on a memo line. The address is listed above under “Check in the Mail.”

Breeze Online

You may choose to donate a one time gift or a recurring gift through Breeze. Please follow the link to Breeze giving. If you wish to give a recurring gift, you’ll have to set up or log into your Breeze account so that you can manage the recurring gift. Breeze does charge a fee for its service, which you can choose to cover or not.

Stock Gifts

You may gift the church stocks. Please contact the finance manager at [email protected] if you are interested in this option.
