Fruits of Hearts Surrendered to God
When you give to the Hempfield UMC General Offering Fund, your contributions help to further the Kingdom of God by supporting all Welcome, Care, Grow, and Serve ministries of the church.
Paypal and Major Credit Cards are Accepted.
All transactions are performed on Paypal’s secure site.
When you use Paypal as an online giving service, a portion of your donation ( 30 cents per transaction, plus 2.2% of your total donation) will be used to pay transaction fees and will not be received by the church. Your giving record will reflect the full amount that you give.
At HUMC, we recognize giving as an act of worship. As stewards of the kingdom of God, we worship God by returning a portion of the resources God has provided to us for the support, strengthening and expansion of the ministry of the church.
Giving is an essential part of our walk with God. The Bible tells us that “God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians 9:7) For our members, we encourage the biblical practice of tithing, the returning of 10 percent of one’s income, as the goal of faithful stewardship.

GIVE APPRECIATED STOCK
The church has a brokerage account for receiving contributions of stock and can provide detailed instructions for making such a gift. Your broker can wire a specified amount of stock to the church’s brokerage account at RBC Wealth Management. HUMC sells stock donations immediately upon receipt and the proceeds, net of broker’s commissions, are then credited to accounts as directed by the donor. Once the net proceeds of the sale have been received, the church will send an acknowledgement letter stating the type of stock received, the date of receipt, and other necessary information. This is the receipt for any tax deductions that may be available.
The Church uses Every.org to receive , liquidate and disburse cryptocurrency gifts to HUMC. By making the contribution to Every.org the donor specifies that the gift is for HUMC. Every.org receives the gift, provides the tax-deductible receipt to the donor, deducts a processing fee, and remits the balance to the church. As with any donor advised fund, the donor gets credit for the gift on the church records and the gift is recorded as “non deductible”. The gift is credited to the accounts as directed by the donor.
Give in Thanks
Whenever you give, offer your thanks to God for the many gifts and resources you have received.
For the giving of other assets or for any question regarding giving, please contact Jeff Pijanowski at 285-5156 ext. 224 for assistance.
