GIVING

Church

"God loves a cheerful giver". (2 Corinthians 9:7)

Churchwide Giving

Methodismís founder John Wesley encouraged his followers to spread the good news, transform hopelessness into hope and assist Godís children wherever they may be. We gather regularly with our congregation and put money into the offering plate, and through a carefully crafted system of United Methodist mission and ministry, our gifts stretch around the world.

Your contributions to New Hope United Methodist Church have regional, national and international impact through our connectional giving system. Most of the money you give supports your local churchís work. A small portion funds regional ministries. A portion of your giving goes to the general church to fund programs nationally and internationally, agreed upon by General Conference delegates. We share the cost of these ministries, with each local church being responsible for contributing a fair portion or "apportionment."

We can go beyond these primary gifts and contribute to additional ministries through the Advance and churchwide Special Sundays with offerings. The Advance offers an opportunity to contribute to specific programs, missionaries and ministries of the giverís choice. Six times a year, Special Sundays focus churchwide attention on specific ministries such as promoting peace and justice and providing scholarships and student loans.

Special Sundays

  • Human Relations Day Sunday Together, we extend a helping hand to those in crisis so they can overcome formidable obstacles. Your generous gift today strengthens community outreach and empowers at-risk youth.

  • UMCOR Sunday (formerly One Great Hour of Sharing) Together, we reach children, families and communities who have experienced devastation in the wake of disaster.

  • Native American Ministries Sunday Together, we empower local spiritual development and educate Native American seminary students to serve God faithfully.

  • Peace With Justice Sunday Together, we spread the gospel of peace and encourage cooperation locally, in the United States and globally.

  • World Communion Sunday Together, we enable national and international graduate students to change the world.
