"To this you were called...that you should follow in His steps"
1 Peter 2:21
Why We Give
It has been said that giving is not God's way of raising money, it is God's way of raising people into the likeness of His Son. Giving as God asks us through His Church requires us to make choices, put Him first, and invest in His Kingdom. This whole process shapes our character and aligns our will with His, revealing more of our potential brillance.
In His StEPS
Every year at Signal Crest we host a Stewardship Campaign. This allows us to educate the church community on the ministries and missions of the church. It also enables us to receive your giving plan for the year. We use this information to set our budget for the year. This budget includes the operating expenses of the church as well as the many outreach activities we are involved in from our children and youth programs to the missions we support.
We encourage you to pray about Signal Crest and to give back as you feel called to do.
Making a joyful noise to the Lord is central to worship at Signal Crest! Please enjoy reading more about the impact your gifts make on our meaningful ministries at Signal Crest.
How to Give
Online Gift Planning and Online Giving are easy, quick, and secure ways to make your commitment to give back or make a gift to God.
2019 Gift Plan: making an annual commitment enables the church to underwrite its work and ministries without requiring an outright gift today.
One-time gifts: simple to set up using a debit or credit card, or from a bank account.
Recurring gifts: set up on a schedule that works for you, and provide flexibility to track and manage your giving.
We discourage the use of credit cards if you will incur debt in the process.
In Person Giving
During our worship services, you may place a check or cash in an offering plate. If you would like your cash gifts to be reflected on a personal contribution statement, please write your name clearly on an offering envelope--provided in the pew racks in the Sanctuary or from ushers in the Crest Service.
You may also bring or mail checks payable to Signal Crest UMC to the church office at:
1005 Ridgeway Avenue
Signal Mountain, TN 37377
