give securely on your phone via text message!

Your gift will be credited to your giving statement, and will be tax-deductible. Now, instead of furtively hunting for a check and a pen during the offering prayer (like us), you can relax and simply send a text during the offering. Whew.

Text gifts are automatically directed to our General Budget/Operating Fund. The texting system does not accept any memos or comments.

Try it out: 407-449-1077

Here's how it works:

The first time you give by text:

  1. Text the amount you'd like to give to this designated number: 407-449-1077. 
  2. The first time you give by text, you'll be prompted to visit a secure webpage. 
  3. Click the registration link, and enter your payment details - like credit or debit card information.
  4. You'll get a confirmation text of your donation and your registration. You're in!

Next time you give by text:

  1. Text an amount to the same number: 407-449-1077.
  2. That's it. You did it. Easy, right? Now, in the future, you can simply text an amount to that number. (Hint: we've saved it in our contacts.)

Give to ARISE AND BUILD by text

Follow steps 1-3 above. 

  1. Text FUNDS to the # and get a reply with the list of funds available for First Pres:
    • General Budget
    • Arise and Build
  2. ENTER: amount+fund name (dollar sign not needed/not case sensitive)


  • 50 arise and build
  • 25 general budget
  • 100 (this would go to General Budget with no fund name)
