Thank you so much for giving to this ministry!
We are committed to prayerfully using all offerings and gifts in the best possible way to further the kingdom of God in our area and around the world. We thank God and you.
Food Bank Tithe
The Administrative Board voted (4.21.20) to tithe 10% of all offerings and non-missional gifts to our local Food Bank at Jenkintown UMC and we have already provided over $80,000 to help feed our neighbors. Glory to God! We thank the Lord and everyone who continues to support our ministry and feed many hungry people in the process.
How are my gifts and offerings used?
Our goal is not to amass money but to give ourselves away as Christ gave His life for us. We practice financial transparency and our itemized financial statements are available each month on the table outside the church offices.
Supports the ministry of our staff (salaries, insurance, housing, etc.), internal ministries (curriculum, homebound ministries, congregational events, and ministries, etc.), campus expenses (upkeep, insurance, utilities, office supplies, etc.), general missions, and UMC connectional ministries giving.
We are intimately involved in ministries here and around the world. Find out more on our Missions page.
