Fake Email Alert

Several congregational members have reported that they received emails that appeared to be from Pastor Jason requesting money for Keller UMC. Pastor Jason did not write these emails. Please delete them and avoid clicking on any links from unknown sources.
 
Emails from KUMC may come from individual staff members with email addresses that end in kellerumc.org. KUMC uses a service called Constant Contact for mass emails such as Quick News, but they would still appear in your inbox with an address ending in kellerumc.org.
 
Staff members will never contact you directly to ask for donations. Please continue to use our various methods of giving: offering plate, mail, text-to-give and online giving. If you are unsure about a message, please contact the church office for assistance.
