We Are Hope Vision

Our Vision

Your pledge to We are Hope represents your commitment to support our shared vision through our capital campaign.  Pledge dollars will go to the development of a building expansion to fulfill the immediate needs for additional space and to allow for anticipated future growth.  By pledging now, you help us plan and budget responsibly.

 

We Are Hope’s initiative

We are Hope is an exciting, multi-year journey that calls the people of Hope United Methodist Church to live into the purposes of God by giving above and beyond your normal tithes and offerings to invest in the future growth of the church you love.
 

Paying for the facility

Your leadership team believes it is time for each of us to step out in faith to take the next steps to expand the current facility and be faithful to the purposes of God. Our goal is 100% participation to reach our financial goal of $2.6M.
         
PLANNED IMPROVEMENTS:
Expansion of our Hope & Play Preschool
Small group rooms for adult classes and church meetings
Enhanced lobby space
Offices for our Pastor and Staff
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.  – Ephesians 3:20–21
 

Giving Commitment

Deciding what and how much to give is a choice to be made between God, you and your family. All things belong to God and he wants us to use wisely what he has given.
 
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Corinthians 9:7

  • Other creative giving strategies (read below)
 

Creative Giving Strategies

Gifts in Kind/Appreciable Assets:
Transfer ownership of stocks, bonds, real estate, automobiles, etc. to the church. Tax codes are generous toward this form of giving. Giving the asset to the church, then allowing the church to sell it, eliminates potential capital gains taxes and can increase the after-tax proceeds, providing significant tax savings.
Income-Producing Assets:
Interest income, payments from rental properties, or monies from other income-producing assets provide sources of increased giving.
Sale of Assets:
Sales of major assets such as a house, car, land, or business provide sources of increased giving.
Income Raises/Bonuses/Tax Returns:
Donating raises, bonuses, and tax returns are also avenues to increased giving.
Freedom from Debt:
As debt obligations are fulfilled, additional revenue may become available for increased giving.
Unique Skills Income/Special Sales:
You may have marketable hobbies or skills which enable you to give from those profits. Or, maybe you can hold a garage sale and donate the proceeds to the We are Hope campaign.
Give Up Some Luxuries:
Lifestyle adjustments can help make extra money available to give to We are Hope. Consider canceling magazine subscriptions and frequent trips for coffee, or scale back on entertainment or eating out.
