We celebrate the faithful giving of our congregation! In so many ways, our members go above and beyond to fund and support the ministries at Epworth. We also recognize that times have changed and the way we use money, and the way we pay for things has changed. Fewer and fewer people carry checkbooks, and fewer and fewer people carry around cash. In an effort to make giving easier and more accessible for our members, we will now be offering on-line giving. You may use this page to send in your normal offering to the general church budget, or to help support a specific project that we are working on. We will also offer this as a place to register for things like VBS, and other ministries. You can use this portal to setup automatic payments from your checking account, or use a credit or debit card, it's all up to you!
If you have questions, or need help navigating the giving site, please don't hesitate to call the church office!
On behalf of the staff and leadership at Epworth, we thank you for your continued generosity, and ask that you also continue to keep us in prayer as we strive to be good stewards as well! As you give, we invite you to offer up a prayer for the ministries that will happen because of your generosity; pray that all that we do will bring people closer to Christ, and will share the message of grace and love that we find vital to life.

The General Board of Global Ministries is the global mission agency of The United Methodist Church, its annual conferences, missionary conferences, and local congregations. They offer a convenient way to donate to projects and missions supported by the UMC, and also offer a way to find a mission through The Advance project search. Go to here to find the right fund for you.
