  1. The text giving process is easy!  Just text the amount you would like to give to 919-230-2663, which is Genesis UMC’s text giving phone number!
  2. For example, just text the number ’10’ to give $10.  You can also text the word ‘help’ to receive additional helpful information from the service.
  3. Tip: You may want to add this number to your Contacts, and name it ‘Genesis Text Giving’ for convenient access, but if you do this, make sure you indicate that it is a mobile number (so texting is enabled).
  4. If you have done this before, then you’ve already setup a text-giving account. That’s it!  You’re done!  You will receive a text message indicating that your giving was successful, or if not, the reason why.  This may be, for example, because you need to update your payment card information on the EasyTithe service.
  5. If this is the first time you’ve done this, you will see the screen to the right.  To continue, Click the ‘Text Giving Registration Help section below …

Text Giving Registration Help

  1. After clicking on the registration link provided in the text message, your device will use it’s preferred Internet web browser to display the screen you see to the right.
  2. Fill out the form with the information requested, and add your credit card information.  Don’t worry – this is safe – the form that is displayed from the EasyTithe service, and is encrypted and protected.  EasyTithe is a PCI Level-1 compliant payment card processor.
  3. Tip:  If you already have an EasyTithe web giving account, make sure you use the same email address that you used when registering for that account.  That will ensure that your text giving and web giving accounting is combined within the same account.
  4. Click the ‘GIVE’ button shown on the screen.  That’s it!  You’re done!  You will see a success message displayed on your screen.

Note: Future Text Giving will not require this one-time registration process.  Our Text Giving number will be able to recognize you based upon your phone number, and the entire process will be accomplished with a single text message!
