FIRST UNITED METHODIST CHURCH FUNDRAISING
Fundraising activities serve at least two important purposes beside the obvious one of raising needed money for church ministries. First, they highlight the specific mission, importance, and needs of the organization which is raising the funds. Second, they help to build community within the church and enthusiasm for its ministries. Fundraisers should never overshadow the practice of stewardship: the amount of funds raised, the frequency of fundraisers, or the objectives of raising the funds. Nor should funds be raised for unnecessary items that may be luxuries when other essential needs in the church are not being met.
