Why We Give
Methodism’s founder John Wesley encouraged his followers to spread the good news, transform hopelessness into hope and assist God’s children wherever they may be. Our offering is our response to the overflowing Grace of our Lord. Our tithe and offerings is a confession of our faith, and participation in God’s Mission. Through a carefully crafted system of United Methodist mission and ministry, our gifts stretch around the world.
Your contributions to Raleigh Court United Methodist Church have regional, national and international impact through our connectional giving system. Most of the money you give supports our mission in the Roanoke area. A small portion funds go to regional ministries. A portion of your giving goes to the general church to fund programs nationally and internationally, agreed upon by General Conference delegates. We share the cost of these ministries, with each local church being responsible for contributing a fair portion or “apportionment.”
