United Methodist Giving Helps Local Churches Exercise Generosity and Faith Together With New Website Launch

Nashville, Tenn.: United Methodist Communications has launched an all-new, redesigned website at UMCGiving.org.

The new site offers Biblical perspective to help United Methodists across the globe align their giving practices with their personal faith.

With easy navigation, there is a section dedicated specifically for church leaders and pastors that offers tools and downloadable resources to help inspire giving within local churches. It also highlights necessary information to equip leaders to discuss giving with members.

The section for church members focuses on the Biblical reasons for giving and highlights several unique opportunities such as Special Sundays, in which the denomination pulls together and focuses financial resources toward key issues that are important to The United Methodist Church. These include disaster relief readiness, scholarships to equip the next generation and advocacy for social justice issues.

Additionally, through feature stories and poignant videos, the site emphasizes stories of how United Methodists have positively affected lives through generosity.

Safe, secure and easy giving opportunities are available across the site so that anyone can participate and join United Methodists’ efforts to make a difference and change the world.
