Your Dollars At Work

Decrease Font SizeIncrease Font Size


Connectional Giving enables United Methodists to do together what no church, district or annual conference could do alone.

All of this—and so much more—is possible because when we join The United Methodist Church, we promise faithfully to participate in its ministries through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. Paying ALL of our apportionments at 100 percent, and giving faithfully to the six church-wide Special Sundays, we become a part of something big and accomplish wonderful things in Jesus’ name!

When you give through your local church or annual conference your gifts expands your church's ministry globally.
