Corona Virus -- we need your support!

COVID-19 has many churches closed throughout the US and the world. While our buildings may be closed, and our services canceled, our ministries and the related expenses continue. We need to keep paying for heat, electricity and employee salaries, among many other expenses. We are now accepting online payments and are encouraging our members and friends to contribute online regularly throughout this crisis. 


After clicking the yellow donate button below, on the next page notice that there are two options: to pay with a PayPal account (if you have one); or to use a debit/credit card (that option is toward the bottom).


Click the yellow "Donate" button to get started:



With God's help, we will get through this time and once again gather together to sing the Lord's praises. For now, please continue to sing the Lord's praises on your own.


Many people think that local churches "get money" from a large church organization, like the United Methodist Church.  The truth is, that local churches like Christ UMC contribute money to the United Methodist Church, to be a part of their global, connectional ministry.  We are honored and grateful to be participating in the wonderful ministries of the UMC at large from right here on Staten Island.  For more information on what the United Methodist Church is doing in the world, please visit


In addition to the aforementioned, we maintain our almost 100 year old church building, pay pastor and employees salaries and offer the community a place to come together to worship God.


The best way, of course, is to worship with us on Sundays at 10:30 a.m., and drop something in the weekly offering.
