2022 Annual Giving Commitment
We are so grateful to all of you who have continued giving to FUMC through this tumultuous time. Your generosity has made it possible for us to adapt quickly and to respond faithfully to all the challenges this year has brought. This year, we expanded our options for worship with tents outdoors in the summer and now live-streaming. We found creative ways to connect with each other, learn together, and reach out into our community together. We have taken our next faithful steps as an inclusive and welcoming church. We have so much to celebrate!
As we kick off this year’s annual giving campaign, we invite you to prayerfully consider how you will support FUMC as we move into the future. Your pledge enables us to plan and to dream – to consider how we will be the church in the changed and changing world of covid.
Now more than ever, the world needs what we as Christ-followers have to give – love, hope, peace, justice, food, shelter, healing and so much more! Please help us as we take our next faithful steps!
Together We Grow, Love, Welcome and Give
Why We Give
“There are so many needs in the world…food insecurity, racial inequality, lack of shelter, human rights violations. How do we decide who needs our contribution the most? FUMC allows us to give to a trusted institution, an organization which addresses all those needs and more. It’s like one-stop shopping for the soul.”
– Nancy Quay and Sherry Marcy
“I give because I love my church home which includes our wonderful community – all those connected to our ministries – clergy, staff and the beautiful buildings. I want to contribute to the goodness and love fostered here. It’s as simple as that.”
– Elaine Shaw
“The reason we give is that FUMC is a strong force for good in our community. We enjoy the community we feel being a part of the church and the opportunity to share God’s love in our community with anyone in need.”
– Jeff Mortimer
