BROADWAY UNITED METHODIST CHURCH

GIVE


We are trying a new platform with fewer fees! We'd love it if you would give it a try. You can make a quick donation by credit card or set up an account for ACH or for recurring donations. Questions or concerns? Email the office. Thanks!

By completing and returning a pledge card, you are expressing your intent and affirming your desire to honor God with your resources. Returning your pledge card makes it possible for our church to plan and implement ministries without hesitation. Knowing your plans allows wise management of resources throughout the year. All ministries our church implements are dependent on the generosity of God's people.

 

You may print and fill out a pledge card, fill out a pledge form online, or contact the church office and let us know what you are pledging for 2022.

All of our ministries are entirely funded by giving and our costs continue even if the building is closed. To enable us to continue our important work through this public health emergency and beyond, we ask that you support our community with eGiving, as generously as you are able. Thank you for your commitment to God’s purposes through our faith community!

MISSION MINUTES

Because our believing affects our living, we are committed to making God’s love and justice known in Lakeview and beyond. We partner with a number of ministries locally and globally – both through giving of financial resources and giving of volunteer time. We see ourselves as people of faith who have both the privilege and responsibility to speak for those whose voices are marginalized, so we seek to be a prophetic voice in matters of justice – especially for those living in poverty, violence, or those who are victims of the “isms” of our society (heterosexism & homophobia; racism; sexism; able-ism; ageism; etc.). We see ourselves as people faith who are also meant to partner with God in easing suffering – so we pray that we do that in our efforts to collect food for the Lakeview Food Pantry, or by hosting Recovery groups in our space.  In addition, each month Broadway collects donations for a specific organization.

COMMUNITY FOOD PANTRY

The events of the past two years have affected us all differently and as we begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel, many are still struggling. The Community Food Pantry outside BUMC is there for anyone in need but it’s often EMPTY! We invite all who are able to pick up a few items next time you’re at the grocery store and drop them off in our Community Food Pantry! “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.” ~ Winston Churchill

 

Suggested items: canned meat or other protein items (tuna, salmon, chicken), crackers, peanut butter, canned soups and stews, canned fruits and vegetables, canned beans, pasta, rice, olive oil or Canola oil, powdered milk, spices (salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion salt, oregano, etc.), granola bars, applesauce, nuts, instant mashed potatoes.

 

Items to Skip: items that have to be refrigerated, items with glass packaging, items that need can openers or other special equipment to open (pop-top cans are the best!), items that require too many extra ingredients, items that are expired, items that are homemade or have already been opened.
