Why We Give

Everything we have is a gift from God. We believe that Christians are called to give generously to the work of God through the life of our local church, and we at Friendship UMC are passionate about using the gifts we receive to make a difference in our community and congregation.

Giving is something that we do out of thankfulness – because God has given everything to us, we return a portion of what we receive to God, through the church, in order to support the work of God in our world. In addition, giving to the church changes us – giving helps form us into more faithful and generous people while also supporting the essential mission and ministry of our church. Through the money that is given, we help make disciples and participate in God’s work of transforming the world.

Giving is a spiritual act. We live in a world in which money matters, and our financial support of the church is one of the many ways that we put our faith into practice. It is also a way of making church a priority in our lives – a tangible and practical way in which we work to put God first.

We at Friendship UMC are thankful for your generosity and all the ways that your giving helps us be the church together. In order to facilitate your giving, we offer the option to give online through a specialized online giving company that offers safe and effective electronic giving/payment options for churches, non-profits, and businesses throughout Virginia (and beyond). This option is meant to help you give more conveniently and regularly. We know that many of you manage many of your expenses electronically or through automated payments. By offering an online giving option, we are hoping to give you that same convenience as you make your offering to God through the ministries of Friendship UMC.
