A Word from Pam Aiken, our Church Council Chair:

Your Finance Committee and I thought it was extremely important to increase awareness in our church community in regards to what happens to your tithe, offering and gift once the check, cash, Push Pay entry, or stock transfer is received. We hope the "Did You Know" section of this newsletter over the last few weeks has helped you gain a better understanding.

I’m a little embarrassed to admit that prior to serving in a leadership role, I thought there was a larger Methodist organization that paid for all church expenses. Then all of our tithes, offerings and gifts went directly to support HUMC’s ministries and missions. Obviously that’s not true since HUMC has an annual budget of around $840,000 which is funded by your generosity. For me personally, once I realized everything I was enjoying each Sunday and during the year was funded by what I chose to place in the offering plate, I knew I needed to do more. This is a very personal decision for each of us. So, I pray Our Lord will touch each of our hearts and provide us the wisdom necessary to do his will.

May Our Lord continue to richly bless each of you and your family.
