As Black Friday and Cyber Monday fade, Giving Tuesday rises, inviting you to give to nonprofits, charities, and churches. On this Global Day of Giving, Tuesday, November 27, 2018, and during the Advent and Christmas season, we invite you to give to your church, Paradise Valley United Methodist Church. Just choose “Christmas-General Fund” from the drop-down menu at GIVE NOW. Include a dedication to someone special in the comments and we’ll include it in our Christmas Eve bulletin IF YOU MAKE YOUR DONATION BY DECEMBER 9, 2018. Tell the world about your donation using the hashtags #GivingTuesday @PVUMC #GodsLoveinAction on social media. Thank you for your generous gifts.
Our Giving Tuesday challenge is tied to virtual poinsettia donations. In past years, we’ve asked for donations to buy poinsettias to take home at the final Christmas Eve service. This year, instead of taking your flowers home, we’ll give plants to our homebound members who cannot come to worship during the holiday season. Each gift you make also comes with an opportunity for you to dedicate that gift to a loved one, and have the dedication printed in our Christmas Eve bulletin. Dedicate your donation in honor of or in memory of a loved one and help fund PVUMC ministries.
You may donate until Sunday, December 9, 2018, and have your dedication included in the Christmas Eve bulletin. After that, donations are welcome, but we cannot guarantee a dedication in the bulletin.
How to Give to the Church
Giving to PVUMC online has gotten a whole lot easier since we added a GIVE NOW button to our website a few years ago. Just use the drop-down menu at GIVE NOW and choose from “Christmas-General Fund” in support of the church and its missions and ministries. There are several other options as well.
From now until Christmas, you can visit our online giving page and choose “Christmas-General Fund.” It’s that easy! Your donations keep our campus active with Journeys small groups classes meeting every week, service opportunities, and events like the Community Concert Series and Christmas Wonderland. Ministry teams have not seen an increase in their budgets for years, and we can help them do more through our gifts on Giving Tuesday and throughout the holiday season.
We want you to be able to give anywhere, anytime, 24 hours a day, whenever the Spirit moves you, but especially on this national day of giving.
The orange “GIVE NOW” button is located at the upper-right hand corner of the homepage top navigation menu.
If you’re on your mobile phone, you’ll find it right next to the drop-down menu. Or just click here to go to the giving page.
November 27, Giving Tuesday, is a nationwide giving day which brings attention to many organizations who are doing good in the world by using social media such as Twitter and Facebook. It’s a great day to give online, and we ask you to give to your church so we can fulfill our mission to be God’s love in action.
Thank you for giving to PVUMC and being God’s love in action. If you give, please tweet or post with the following hashtags and handle: #GivingTuesday #GodsLoveinAction #pvumc @PVUMC.
