We have an exciting program to announce! Pushpay is available to allow you to now make online donations to the Holden United Methodist Church. As we work to bring you this new technology, we will soon have an app available to download on your phone and will eventually include live streaming of our worship services. We thank you in advance for your patience as we move forward in our efforts to make accessing our church easier for even more people!

Our Response to God's Generosity
God, you are the Giver of All Good Gifts and Graces. Grow in us the wisdom to know that all we have to give is in our hands only because You have given to us. May the gifts we have been given and the gifts we share reflect the depth of our gratitude for your many blessings. We pray this in the holy name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen

Here are a couple of options in which you may give:

  • By texting holdenumc give to 833-748-4001, following the instructions that follow
  • By mailing to Holden UMC; 605 E 10th St, Holden MO 64040

We are grateful for your faithfulness and generosity.
