WHAT WE GIVE
As disciples of Jesus Christ, we're invited to love God with all of who we are. So we ask ourselves what that looks like in each season of life when it comes to our calendar & time, our passion & gifts and our financial resources.
If right now is a good season to give your time or specific talents, check out these ways to serve. Read on for more about our financial gifts.
WAYS TO GIVE
1. Give cash or check in the offering plate during worship. Make checks out to Marysville UMC.
2. Make a secure one time or recurring gift online. You're able to make changes to your account at your convenience.
A STEWARDSHIP OF POSSIBILITY
How do I make a commitment?
Anytime during the year, you can visit this site and set up a recurring gift in the amount you have chosen. Alternatively, you can write down your commitment in worship in early November. Cards will be provided.
We encourage starting (or moving to) online giving: it’s green, consistent, and safe. You can visit this site and you’ll be asked to create a profile and input your information.
How much should I pledge?
Take time to pray and discern. We encourage giving a deliberately-chosen percentage of gross income. We are challenged to set a tithe (the Biblical word for 10% of our income) as the giving goal in our lives. Start where you can and begin the journey. Some fully tithe or give more than a tithe; others take an incremental approach - increasing their gift by 1%, 2%, or 3% per year - to gradually move toward 10%.
What if my financial circumstances change?
If you need to change your commitment at any time, just let us know. This commitment represents your voluntary giving; it’s not a binding contract. For more information, contact the office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
