Online Giving

First Presbyterian Church Fort Worth is excited to offer online giving. ShelbyNext is a feature offered by Shelby Systems Church Management Software, which First Pres has used for years to manage our membership database and financial records. You are invited to use ShelbyNext as an easy, convenient, and secure way to donate your pledge and contributions through the website or mobile app. Using this method, you can set up ACH payments through your bank account on your preferred schedule. Make changes at any time.
