Ways to Share Your Gifts
Herndon UMC would not be able to support the many missions and ministries that it does without the generosity of our church community. Everyone is encouraged to share their time, talents and treasure. Want to develop a new skill, like working on web pages or speaking in public, let us know. Opportunities abound!
Time and Talents
There are so many opportunities to serve and share God’s Love in the Herndon UMC community. Herndon UMC lists opportunities to serve here on the website, available to anyone interested. We hope you will find one (or more) that brings you joy. Maybe you love the way the facilities at Herndon UMC are (normally) open and available to the community and want to help the Trustees make that happen; maybe you sing or play an instrument and would like to join one of our music groups; or maybe you were grateful for the way Sunday fellowship allowed you to connect with members and want to help with hospitality or welcoming.

Herndon UMC benefits from a diverse community and recognizes that diversity means we need to respond with many ways to communicate and to give. So, there are many options for giving to Herndon UMC. Most are listed below. If you have questions about ways to give, designated giving or need assistance in setting up or modifying your account, please contact our Treasurer (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Business Manager (email@example.com).
Giving in Worship/Giving Envelopes
An offering plate is passed around at each regular worship service. If you choose, checks or cash may be placed in the offering plate. Checks may be made out to “HUMC“.
Herndon UMC provides envelopes to help protect your privacy, to help you clearly specify donation designations and to help our volunteers to correctly record and credit donations. There are envelopes available in the attendance pads and from the ushers. At any time, if you would like a stack of envelopes (i.e. weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.) Please let the Julie Albanus (firstname.lastname@example.org) know or ask in the office.
Giving through Your Bank
A number of givers choose to make or schedule donations through their own banks. This utilizes the online bill pay system of their bank. To do so, you will likely need to know Herndon UMC’s address and phone number.
