“Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” –2nd Corinthians 9:7b-8
Donations to Roswell United Methodist Church are used to sustain and grow its missions and ministries.
- All gifts are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
- Gift acknowledgements will be mailed to donors.
- The budget is prepared in consultation with all ministry areas. The Finance Committee then makes the formal recommendation of the budget for missions and outreach, education and discipleship, worship and music, buildings and grounds, and for other operating expenses and salaries to the Church Charge Conference for their approval.
Gifts may be made to Roswell United Methodist Church in several ways:
Monetary Gifts to Operating Budget
You can make your gift to RUMC in a variety of ways. You can put loose money in the offering plate as it is passed, but if you contribute this way you will not receive a contribution statement for the gift. You can mail in your gift. You can place it in your numbered offering envelope. You can use one of our Giving Kiosks in the Sanctuary building (in the east and south lobbies.) Or give electronically via the web or via text. You can have your funds transferred to the church automatically once or twice a month. We offer all these ways; which way is right for you and your lifestyle?

Annual Stewardship Campaign to Set RUMC Operating Budget
Annual In His Steps Stewardship Campaign — Every fall the Finance Committee, with input from the ministry areas, establishes a proposed budget. A critical step in developing the budget is finding out what you are estimating your gift to RUMC will be for the upcoming year. We will provide you with an “Estimate of Giving Card” so you can communicate your giving plans. By submitting an estimate of giving card you enable the church leadership to plan and set priorities for the coming year. The RUMC operating budget supports missions and outreach, education and discipleship, worship and music, buildings and grounds, and other operating expenses and salaries. For more information on In His Steps and access to an online pledge card click here. For more information on the estimate of giving cards or the budgeting process, contact Bill Barbour, 770.261.1707 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If Your Offering Is for a Fund other than the budget, please designate the distribution on the “for” line of your check. This will assure that your contribution is deposited in the correct account.

If you would like some assistance in calculating proportional giving, there is an on-line calculator that can assist you in knowing what your giving would look like if you gave on a per week, per month or per year basis. The on-line calculator will also let you compute what you should give as a percentage basis. The calculator is informative and easy to use. The In His Steps Committee recommends that you try this link so you know where you are and what you might want to grow your giving to: Click here for the link.
