Generous giving is not easy in a recession.
It takes commitment, reaching beyond the local congregation, and the faith and courage to make hard choices. It requires emotional, spiritual and financial investment.
Some of the biggest miracles in The United Methodist Church happen because committed congregations pay their apportionments in full. One-hundred percent giving to United Methodism’s seven apportioned funds paves the way for African students to pursue higher education, enriches 11 historically black colleges, supports our bishops in their ministry, provides the financial backbone for General Conference, strengthens cooperation with people of other faiths and nurtures seminarians in their spiritual journey.
