Give

Our mission is to share the hope of Jesus Christ with people in Seattle and around the world. When we give, we have the privilege of participating in that mission. Our gifts to God, through UPC, create opportunities for people to be fed, baptized, visited, counseled, prayed for, encouraged, taught, and loved in the name of Jesus. Our gifts make a difference.

It's because of your generosity that UPC is able to engage in mission all throughout the year.

 

Year-End Giving at UPC

Give by Dec. 31, 2017

Your gifts make a difference as we share the hope of Jesus Christ with people in our city and around the globe. Year-end gifts to Shared Ministry (CORE) must be received or postmarked no later than Dec. 31, 2017, to qualify for tax deduction. On Christmas Eve we'll also be taking a special offering for local and global Outreach. Thank you for supporting ministry at UPC!

 

Ways to Give

Online Giving

UPC offers two secure, trusted options for online giving. Both are equally good ways to support ministry at UPC—it’s a matter of preference (some people use both options!).

Pushpay

Pushpay is a fast, secure, trusted ministry partner for UPC. It works well for those who wish to give to Shared Ministry (CORE) at UPC, but also allows people to designate gifts using a memo field.

MyUPC

MyUPC is powered by Ministry Platform, a secure ministry partner for UPC. It works well for those who wish to designate their gifts and/or contribute to Shared Ministry (CORE). MyUPC also allows users to update their own listing in the UPC Church Directory (online), manage online giving, and register for events.

Why Do We Give?

We give because all that we have—time, money, talents—comes from God. Scripture teaches us that one way we thank God is by returning a generous portion of those gifts back to him. UPC is a generous congregation. We love to give generously and joyfully to support ministry, and we invite you to join us in this act of worship as we tangibly share the hope of Jesus Christ with people in our city and around the world.
