Your Impact

YOU are the connection

United Methodists are connectional, which we demonstrate through giving beyond our local church and local community needs.

The United Methodist Church's connectional giving structure —all of us giving together— ensures your generosity blesses as many people as possible in sustainable, strategic ways.

You are the piece that enables us to meet the needs of ALL of God’s people – together.

Give to Special Sundays or give to missions to continue to partner with God in ministry.
