Summer BBQ's, pool parties, road trips, and fireworks...this is all coming to a close as back to school season arrives!  For some of us, summer has gone by entirely too quickly. For others, back to school time could not get here sooner!  

UMCmarket is here to help with all of your back to school needs!  Save time and money, avoid the crowds, and give back to your local church all at the same time! In addition, this is a great time to take advantage of your state's Tax Free Shopping weekend at the end of July or beginning of August.  And, many online retailers offer additional savings and free shipping during tax-free weekends. Curious when your state will operate tax-free weekend - click here!

If you haven't already, take a moment to download the free UMCmarket app in Android or iOS versions.  Do all of your back to school shopping directly from your smartphone while you still enjoy the last days of summer with your families.

UMCmarket’s efforts for 2016 will continue to focus on mission and ministry, exploring opportunities to help supporters find alternative means to fund the missions of our United Methodist affiliated ministries and local churches. If you know of a United Methodist ministry not currently enabled on the platform, please contact GCFA’s Shared Services to be added to the platform. As always, there is no cost to the local church or ministry. The site is designed to specifically benefit ministries with little effort on their part. Help us spread the word about this free ministry for local churches.
