The Ripple Effect

Giving is a tangible way we can connect, nurture, and serve others. Jesus led by example by giving His life for us. Giving to the General Fund helps our local church pay operating expenses and Apportionments to our Alabama-West Florida Conference. Since the United Methodist Church is a connectional church, Conference programs support and nurture regional and worldwide areas that need our financial assistanceGiving to Designated Funds supports local projects that do not have sufficient capital or manpower resources. Local projects supported by local churches are an effective and efficient way to help. Hence, the “ripple effect.”
