Our mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. When you give, you help us reach that mission, as well as help us love our community through service and relationships. Below are the four ways you can give to Good Samaritan – thank you for your generosity!
FOUR WAYS TO GIVE
Whether you are using your desktop computer or a mobile phone, you can use this page to make a quick donation or setup a giving profile. You can also set up a recurring contribution using you debit or credit card.
You can mail your tithes and offerings by using our pre-addressed giving envelopes (found at Welcome Desk) or by using your own. Be sure to make your check out to Good Samaritan United Methodist Church
During the offering, simply drop your donation in the baskets as they are passed down the aisles. If you like, you can use one of the giving envelopes we provide.
USING BILL PAY
Set up bill pay online through your bank to create automatic payments. You are in charge of the amount and the frequency, and don’t have to worry about manually making a gift!
WHY DO WE GIVE?
We give out of gratitude for the generosity and blessings we have received from God. We give as an act of worship. We give to support the mission and message of Jesus Christ “God’s love has no exceptions!”
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
The money goes to support the ministry and work of Good Samaritan UMC. General offerings allow for gifts to be used to fund the budget of the church, which includes, worship, discipleship, children’s ministry and operating expenses. Designated gifts (building campaign, benevolence, missions) go directly to the ministry area the giver chooses.
WHAT FUND SHOULD I GIVE TO?
This is the primary way we fund the ministry of Good Samaritan. 5% of this offering goes directly to Missions. General offerings allow for gifts to be used to fund the budget of the church, which includes, worship, discipleship, children’s ministry and operating expenses.
Will you consider an automatic recurring gift to the general offering ensuring that the church is blessed with funding all year long even during the vacation months? Give to this fund HERE
We have a new sanctuary! Our mortgage for both buildings is $24,000 a month. Please prayerfully consider joining many of us who are giving an additional gift each month to the building campaign. Give to this specific fund HERE
THE SPARROW FUND
Previously named Benevolence, this fund is used to aid those in our community and beyond that are experiencing financial crisis. The hope is that we will also be able to help 1-3 people a year with a significant expense like a large medical bill. Give to this specific fund HERE
Provides funding for Westside Mission, Grace Mission, Echo, Second Harvest and the Florida UMC Children’s Home, and many more local missions and foreign missions in Guatemala and Kenya. Give to this specific fund HERE
