What is the Greater Love One Fund Campaign?

It is a two-year spiritual growth and giving journey which began on May 15, 2016 to secure funds for (1) annual ministry and mission expenses and (2) the construction of a new facility at our property on Plain City-Lafayette Road.

What exactly are you asking me to do?

Each individual and family is invited to take this question before God in prayer: “God, what is the next step you are asking me to take to invest in the mission and vision of Plain City UMC?”  In response to what God is saying, we will fill out an investment card on May 28, 2017 to communicate our giving commitment for the final year of the Greater Love Campaign. If you’ve already made a commitment, you can RENEW or REVISE your giving. Others will be able to MAKE A FIRST-TIME commitment to Greater Love!

What is different about a “One Fund” campaign?

In past campaigns, we have maintained our giving to annual ministry expenses while giving “over and above” gifts to the new facility project.  For the two-year Greater Love campaign, all our giving will contribute to ONE fund that will be used to serve the ONE mission God has given us – to CONNECT imperfect people on a journey to BE, LOVE, and SERVE like Jesus…and help others do the same (MULTIPLY).

 Why are we doing a “One Fund” campaign?

(1) To stay focused on the one mission we are pursuing through ongoing ministries AND the new facility project.  (2) To encourage EVERYONE to take their next steps to grow in stewardship and generosity.  (3) To increase unity as a Family on Mission growing to Be, Love and Serve like Jesus. 

What if I am new around here?

First, Welcome! We are so glad you are here! You picked a great time to check us out.  God is on the move in exciting ways and we would love to have you join us! We invite you to prayerfully consider if God is leading you to be part of this family on mission and the Greater Love journey over the next years.

Does it really matter if I complete an investment card

YES!  Here’s three huge reasons your investment card matters.  (1) Every investment card represents a prayerful decision to take a next step with Jesus.  (2) Every investment card helps us get a step closer to our $1 million goal, which will enable us to fund our next steps as a church family on mission following Jesus.  (3) Our investment cards help the leadership team of PCUMC plan wisely for the next two years of ministry, mission and facility construction.
