United Methodists: Stronger through Connection

The United Methodist Church's special giving structure ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways. Our connectional system connects your local congregation to our global denomination of more than 12 million members across four continents. While worship platforms have changed in light of the recent crisis, we still come together to accomplish more.

Through the support of you, and your church, we fund hundreds of ministries each year. The call we hear from Galatians 6:2 and Matthew 19-19b to love and give to our neighbors is clear.  When you give towards Special Sundays and The Advance you change the world one life at a time.
