Church Finances​

Despite the quarantine, expenses still must be met. There are several ways you can make your regular donations during the pandemic:

  • Mail your checks to the church office. If you want to include a donation to some ministry like CARITAS, please indicate the ministry and the amount on the memo line of your check .

  • Drop your donation by the church office during office hours: Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

  • Get yourself a Cash App account and pay securely on line at  $GUMCVA. Funds go straight to each church’s bank account. A statement will go to the respective church financial secretary to record your giving, and your privacy is assured.

Greenwood Food Donation Connection

Anyone wanting to bring food to the church to be distributed on Friday nights can do so during Greenwood Office hours: Tuesday through Friday, 9 a.m. — 1 p.m. The ministry needs donations of canned meat (chicken and tuna) and beans and also fresh fruit and vegetables.
