Welcome to Houston Memorial United Methodist Church,

celebrating our 133rd year of service and worship in this community.

Help support the ministries of the church!

​​Electronic Giving is now available!

Last summer several visitors at Worship On the Water inquired about electronic giving since they rarely carried a checkbook. After study, we have partnered with Vanco Payment Solutions, a preferred partner of the United Methodist Church to offer a full range of electronic giving options. These options offer you the ability to make one-time or recurring payments and designate your donation as you prefer.


Giving is easy. Just have your bank or credit card information handy and choose the method that suits you best:

Give online by computer, laptop or tablet:

  • Follow the “Click here to give online” link above. This will redirect you to a personalized webpage managed by Vanco. Follow the instructions on the page. You choose the amount by fund or a fund you write in, the donation frequency


Give on your iPhone or Android device:

  • Search for the Give+ app from the app store.

  • Download the app and follow the instructions.


Give by text message:

  • Text your amount to 205-774-6423.

  • Just enter the amount in the message line. The default fund is the General Fund. If you want to designate your donation, add a space after your amount and enter the appropriate code below:

    • WOW for Worship On the Water

    • MSM for Main Street Ministries

    • UMW for United Methodist Women


Give by swiping your credit card:

  • See Marlene, Ernie or Dusty before or after the service. They will happy to swipe your card with the card reader. Please note that your credit card receipt will show as Vanco Payment Solutions as the clearing house but the funds are transferred to our bank account the following day.


Detailed instructions for each of these options will be provided in the narthex and on the Information Table in the Parish Hall.
