Plan Your Gifts for the Greatest Impact

II Corinthians 9:10: “Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”


For over 125 years, First United Methodist Church has lovingly opened its doors to the Midland, Texas community. Celebrating a shared faith in Jesus Christ and doctrine solely rooted in scripture, we bear faithful witness to the Lord and the wonderful things he has done for us.

In 1973, a group of church leaders established the First United Methodist Church of Midland Foundation with an initial gift of $3,000. Since that initial faithful gift, the First United Methodist Church of Midland Foundation has been instrumental in expanding First United Methodist Church and allowing us to continue to welcome people for Christ, grow people in Christ and serve people with Christ.

By supporting the Foundation, you will make it possible for First United Methodist Church to continue to spread the love of Jesus Christ to the community and to the world through our mission work.

There are a number of ways to give outlined on the following pages. You may choose to make a gift in your will. Using life insurance proceeds or making a gift from a retirement plan is also possible. There are even ways to make a gift now that can provide you or those you care about with an income for life or another period of time. All offer tax advantages for you and/or your loved ones. Read on for more information.

As Paul instructed the Corinthians in his letter, we hope you will consider supplying seed for First United Methodist to sow in the community. Your donation will not only increase the “harvest” here at First United Methodist Church, but it will increase yours as well.


First United Methodist Church accepts gifts of most types of assets; however, acceptance may be subject to approval by Charge/Church Conference, the Board of Trustees or the Board of Directors of the First United Methodist Church of Midland Foundation, Inc.
