Opportunities for Giving

Opportunities for Giving

by Linda Stoutenburgh on June 03, 2021

Difficult times bring out the very best in Christians.  THANK YOU  to everyone who has made a priority of continuing to practice faithful giving and has mailed your offering, set up giving through your online banking system, or taken the plunge and used our online giving system!  

As we return more and more to normalcy, your faithful giving will be more important than ever.  Your generosity over the past year has enabled us to cover our core operating costs (payroll, utilities, mortgage).  As we resume more and more of our regular operations, ministry costs and certain elements of our core costs will rise.   

If your financial situation is secure, I invite you to consider and pray about increasing your regular giving, or to perhaps returning to your pre-pandemic giving level if you've been giving less.   

Here’s how to give as you intend:

  • Join us in person in the sanctuary on Sunday mornings, and put your offering in the plate.  We'd love to see you back!
  • Our online giving system is easy to use. You can set it up on your computer or other device using a web browser or install our app on your smartphone for even more convenience.  The “Give Now” option is for regular offerings (Ministries & Missions, or Mortgage); “Special Donations” is where you can make a Pandemic Relief offering.
  • Text "Give" to 703-440-7222 to easily access our online giving system from your smartphone.
  • You can always mail your offering check to Leesburg UMC, 107 West Market Street, Leesburg, VA 20176. (Please do not drop off items/envelopes in the church mailbox.  The mail carrier could think your item is outgoing mail and it would likely never return to us.)

And finally, if you find yourself facing difficulties (financial or otherwise), do reach out to Pastor Jim or Rev. Heather, so we can be the Body of Christ for you.

Peace to you,
Linda Stoutenburgh
Office Manager and Financial Secretary
