Because the major holidays land on Sundays this December, it’s extra-important to get year-end gifts to UPC in on time. Your gifts to support Shared Ministry at UPC make a huge impact as we live out our mission. Gifts can be made at UPC, online (www.upc.org/give), bv texting “UPC” to 77977, or by mail. Gifts of stock or appreciated assets are also welcome. Gifts must be received or postmarked by December 31, 2016 to qualify for tax deduction. UPC will have limited office hours on December 30 and 31. Contact Jennifer Perrow (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
Your gifts make ministry happen. Our mission is to share the hope of Jesus Christ with people in Seattle and around the world. When you give here, you make that happen.
We are a group of people on mission together, and we’re excited about what God is doing in and through our church community. When you give to UPC, lives are transformed. People are fed, baptized, visited, counseled, prayed for, encouraged, taught, and loved—all in the name of Jesus. Your gifts here matter.

We give because every single thing that we have—time, money, talents—has been entrusted to us by God. Scripture teaches us that one way to thank God for his blessings is to return a generous portion of them back to him. Being a generous giver is an essential part of living in a way that honors Jesus Christ. Giving is also an act of worship, which is why it’s a part of our services each week.
Try it. We encourage you to give generously to fund God’s work in the world. You’ll be delighted as you watch your gifts make ministry happen. It’s the best investment you can make.
