Our Response to God's Generosity
God, you are the Giver of All Good Gifts and Graces. Grow in us the wisdom to know that all we have to give is in our hands only because You have given to us. May the gifts we have been given and the gifts we share reflect the depth of our gratitude for your many blessings. We pray this in the holy name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior. Amen

Here are a couple of options in which you may give:

  • By texting holdenumc give to 833-748-4001, following the instructions that follow

Church Fundraiser

Join us on a momentous journey as we come together for a noble cause at our upcoming church fundraiser. We are dedicated to enhancing the accessibility and convenience of our beloved church by initiating a transformative project to pave our parking lot with durable, smooth concrete. Our mission begins with the addition of specially designated handicap parking spots, ensuring seamless access for every member of our cherished community.

But our vision extends far beyond the parking lot. With your invaluable support, we aspire to introduce cutting-edge automatic doors, elevate the church lighting for an immersive and enlightening experience, and expand the concrete pathways to foster a more welcoming environment for all our members and visitors. Additionally, we seek to revitalize the aesthetics of our sacred space by exploring the possibility of installing contemporary countertops, creating a modern and refreshed ambiance that resonates with the values of our vibrant congregation.

Join us as we embark on this inspiring journey towards a more accessible, inviting, and spiritually uplifting community hub, fostering an inclusive haven that embraces the essence of our faith.
