GIVING

Our church, its people, and its ministries are supported and revitalized through your gifts of prayer, presence, service, and money. 

Thank you. Your giving makes a difference.

ELECTRONIC GIVING

Powell United Methodist Church has an Electronic Fund Transfer (EFT) giving program (E-Giving) that allows people to make contributions electronically to the General Fund, the Building Fund, and/or the Memorial Fund. EFT transactions are considered to be safer than writing a check or giving cash, and are regulated by strict Federal and State guidelines. Currently E-giving can be used for ongoing giving. In order to participate in the e-giving program you will be asked to set up a new account. You should have all of the information that you need to register except for your Family ID number. If you do not have your Family ID number (available from the church office), please proceed by entering your first and last name into that field. You only have to set up your account once at this site; you do not have to set it up annually. If you have questions, please contact Rob Hoffmann, Church Treasurer, at treasurer@powellumc.org.

COVENANT OF  GIVING 

God is the source of all gifts. Life flows from God and the focus of life is to respond to God’s generosity through acts of giving that reflect our commitment of faith.
We believe Christian stewardship is a joyful response to God’s gifts; it is a spiritual understanding of the practical and economic aspects of all of life. Our stewardship affirms the redemptive power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and our confidence in God’s final victory in the world.
Download the full “Covenant of Giving,” and make your personal commitment.

COMMUNION OFFERINGS

On designated Sundays, generally the first Sunday of the month, the Sacrament of Holy Communion is celebrated in all three worship services, 8:15, 9:30 and 11:00. On those Sundays, persons receiving Communion are invited to give to a mission project designated for that month. A special envelope is provided. Click here for a list of communion offerings for 2018.
 

ENDOWMENT FUND

For over five years, Powell United Methodist Church has offered giving opportunities that help insure the long-term financial stability of the Church. Gifts to the Endowment Fund are held in perpetuity. The principal is held and the income is used to fulfill the Christian ministries and missions of the church. In addition to estate planning gifts, endowment gifts of any amount can also be made in memory or honor of an individual, group, or special event. The donor may designate the use of the income from the gift, or the gift may be placed in the Endowment Fund with the use of the income directed by the Trustees.
As the Endowment Fund grows, so does the Church’s financial stability and its ability to carry out its purpose for generations to come.

 

 
Baby Items that are Being Collected for The Expecting Mothers in Haiti. The items are: bibs, caps, onesies and receiving blankets. Our Haiti Mission team will be taking these items to distribute to the women expecting their new children. Join our team by bringing these items and offering your prayers for the team and those in Haiti. Please drop off the items at the display table in the Main Hall no later than July 15th. For questions, contact Amy Sarver, amelia_blue@yahoo.com

DISASTER RELIEF

As United Methodists, we respond through our prayers & our gifts to the United Methodist Committee on Relief (UMCOR), and our readiness to serve when the time is right.
UMCOR is always one of the first responders in times of disaster. To be a part of the response, you can help in several ways:

  • Write a check to Powell UMC and write “Disaster Response” in the memo line
  • Visit www.umcor.com to give online
Another way to support those who are affected by natural disasters is to bring flood buckets items. Flood bucket items are being collected through the summer as a way to provide relief to our neighbors across the country who are affected by natural disasters. You will find the display with the list of items needed for the buckets in the Main Hall and Children’s area in the Education Wing. Drop your items off in the clear bins at those display tables. After we collect all the items, a team will be recruited to assemble the buckets. If you have any questions regarding the bucket items or are interested in being a part of the assembly team, contact Early Response Team Coordinator, Scott Hilty at scott.hilty@gmail.com.
