Why We Give

Overview

The United Methodist Church's special giving structure ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways. Through the support of you, and your church, we fund hundreds of projects each year. 

The Bible is clear. Galatians 6:2, NRSV says, “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Jesus says it this way, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 19:19b).
WE GIVE TO MINISTER IN JESUS’ NAME

Together, United Methodists do remarkable ministry around the world. We care for survivors recovering from earthquakes and storms; we invest, long term, in vulnerable communities; we implement the most effective solutions to diseases like malaria; we equip the next generation to lead the church and society. In all of this, we share the good news of Jesus Christ.

WE GIVE BECAUSE . . .:

Much has been given,  Jesus invites us to and It makes a difference. The Bible is clear. Galatians 6:2, NRSV says, “Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Jesus says it this way, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 19:19b). 
 
Through our Shared Ministries all of us giving together  allows United Methodists to do together what we cannot do alone. When you give on Special Sundays, enable vital ministries that change the world, one life at a time. Every United Methodist can support the vital ministries they care about, such as The Advance with no administrative costs deducted from your donation. Many together are greater than one alone.
