Giving at FPC
This month we focus on our church's hunger ministries, celebrating their successes and exploring ways we can do more to build more food security in our city and the surrounding areas.
We want to raise $40,000 this month to help pay for these ministries, which include Hot Dish & Hope which provides a free meal and a measure of hope to anyone who needs it twice a week in Mullin Life Center.
You can give online here (use the FPCHunger blank) or use the special offering envelopes in the pews on Sundays (10:30 am, Sanctuary).
Each Sunday we will hear about one of our hunger ministries. On July 14, Leslie Isakoff, executive director of A Simple Gesture, will tell us how her agency helps children who are hungry throughout the year. On July 21, we'll learn more about the work of Hot Dish & Hope, and on July 28 we'll learn about our Giving Back Garden.

1. Create a text message and address it to 74483.
In your message, type the code from choices below, then a space, then the amount you wish to give, without the dollar sign. The message must use this format.
- fpcgive 50 means you are giving $50 to the general fund
- fpchunger 75 means you are giving $75 to our hunger ministries
- fpcpledge 100 means you are giving $100 toward your annual pledge.
The amount, of course, is up to you.
2. You will receive a text back. The first time you give via text, you will receive a link to setup your login and card information. In future the system will recognize you automatically, and send a confirmation text asking you to respond with a Y (meaning yes). You will receive a receipt via email, and your church giving statement will include these gifts.
The 1824 Fund (named after the year we were founded) is for people who find it easier to set up regular contributions via checking, PayPal, credit card or other accounts via computer, tablet, phone, etc. Set up your giving here.

Charitable tax provision
People who are 70½ years of age and older can donate up to $100,000 to FPC (or another charity) directly from their Individual Retirement Accounts. These distributions will not be treated as taxable income. Depending on your circumstances, this could be an excellent way to fulfill campaign pledges, annual pledges, or to make a special year end gift to the ministries of First Presbyterian Church. Please consult with your tax advisor before making a final decision, but we wanted you to know that this provision is now permanent.
