Your generous gifts allow Hennepin Avenue UMC to continue to fulfill our mission
A pledged gift is the best way to allow Hennepin Avenue UMC staff and leadership to budget and fulfill commitments. However, if you choose not to pledge, or would like to make a gift beyond your annual pledge, you may do so by clicking Give Now below. Your generous gifts allow Hennepin Avenue UMC to continue to fulfill our mission of hospitality, outreach, and spiritual renewal. Thank you for your contribution to Hennepin Avenue UMC and our Ministries.
Ways to Give
Annual giving is not about church budgets. Rather, it’s about God’s mission; it’s a way of life. Giving is not an issue of how much money the church needs, but rather what we share to create and sustain lives of faith. We don’t give because we care about how much the church pays for utilities, insurance, or other line items in the budget.
Giving is not about budgets. Giving is about God’s abundance and how we respond with thanksgiving. Unfortunately when people give to budgets, the church soon becomes caretakers of the budget rather than visionaries of the Holy Spirit.
