Welcome to Connectional Giving for the West Michigan Conference. Here you will find connectional giving information and resources for conference and local church leaders.
Where The Dollars Go
Through our connectional system as The United Methodist Church, the money we give each week in the offering plate is divided and distributed to people and places in need.
2017 Special Sunday Offerings
Six times throughout the year, United Methodist congregations celebrate church-wide Special Sundays with offerings. Your support is critical to the survival of these important ministries and for sharing God’s gifts around the world.
The Advance (short for The Advance for Christ and His Church) is Methodist “lingo” for designated giving to specific projects through the United Methodist Church. It’s one way for people to direct their dollars to specific needs they feel called to support.
There’s a map that helps us travel the Mission Highway. It’s called the “Six Lanes of The Advance” and it deals with Second Mile Giving above and beyond our basic responsibilities for outreach.
