Central Presbyterian Church has an annual budget of over $600,000 that supports all of our programs and ministries. The budget is funded by a variety of different sources, but the vast majority comes from contributions from members and friends. Every gift truly matters, however large or small.

Electronic Giving

To make an online financial gift use the link below (There is a new look in our Giving Portal, please let us know how you like the giving experience.):


Note: for either one-time gifts or recurring, a credit card charge will appear on your card statement with a description: “SST*CENTRALPRESBY212564 MOUNT VERNON OH”. Rest assured the funds find their way directly to the coffers of Central Presbyterian Church in Des Moines, not a church in Mount Vernon, Ohio.

COVID-19 Relief Donations

Your contribution helps Central support the face mask making team and other emergency needs of non-profits and area agencies. By using the giving portal, you may pay any amount you choose to support these groups.

2021 Stewardship Campaign

Each year in the fall, members of the congregation are invited to make a pledge for the coming year, indicating their level of financial commitment. This allows the church’s Session to prepare the annual budget, based on a reasonable expectation of income for the next year. Pledge amounts are kept confidential. If you would like to make a pledge, please contact our Finance Director.

Everything we do at Central has purpose and meaning. Your pledge helps us to plan and make the most effective use of the resources that God has granted us and that support the ministries we share. But, most importantly, pledging is vital to each of us as givers and allowing the work of the church to be an ongoing part of our walk in faith.
