This year’s Lenten Offering will support two important ministries:

  • Loaves & Fishes food pantry helps feed thousands of families year-round. See for more info.
  • Downtown Ministries is a ministry administered by our pastors providing clothing, sleeping bags, tents, food, and other assistance for people in the Charlottesville community.

To contribute to the offering, please visit our online giving page, or use the Lenten Offering envelopes that are in various public areas of the church. Or write a check to First UMC for “Lenten Offering” and put it in the offering plates on Sunday.
