Giving online is a personal preference, but here are a few of the benefits:
- You are taking a step of faith…. deciding in advance to give faithfully.
- You will help simplify your life…. you won’t have to remember whether you gave this month or need to send in a check when you’re on a trip.
- You will be helping the church…. it allows you to give consistently, even when you’re not at church.
- You can focus on worship without distractions…. no more having to get out a pen and write out a check
Other ways to support Sharon UMC
- Altar Flowers – Would you like to see living, fresh flowers on the altar on Sunday mornings as a symbolic expression of Christ’s sacrifice? Who would you like to honor or remember by placing flowers on the altar? The flowers will grace the altar all week and/or be used to cheer up church family who are shut-ins at home or in area rest homes. While we always encourage our church family to share fresh flowers from their gardens, there’s also a need to have fresh flowers purchased and delivered for both our local and remote congregation members. Simply call the church office at (910) 842-2929.
