DAY4HOPE FUNDRAISING BEGINS NEXT TUESDAY!

The Giving Challenge is from 12 Noon April 9th through 12 Noon April 10th only.  The Giving Challenge is sponsored by the Community Foundation of Sarasota County which will be matching funds for monies donated to Hope4Communities, the umbrella organization for our Day4Hope event each August for kids and their families who are experiencing homelessness.

Our goal is to raise $5,000 to help 50 kids as identified by Prine Elementary, the school with which we partner to help homeless children. You can give one of two ways in amounts from as little as $25 to a maximum of $100. Please note that checks are NOT accepted. All donations are made online in one of two ways:

1. Click on this link https://www.givingchallenge.org/p2p/358948/emmanuelumc. This will take you to the secure Giving Challenge website where it says:

“Emmanuel United Methodist is a fundraiser for Galatians 6:2 Inc dba Hope 4 Communities.”

Then click the Donate button in the center at the bottom of the page and enter the requested information.

        OR...

2. Make a Pledge – When you make a pledge, you complete a card we will provide this Sunday with all the necessary information to charge your credit card including name, address, Credit Card number, email and phone number. Then, on the dates of the Giving Challenge (April 9 and 10 from Noon to Noon) a member of our Finance team will enter the information online for you then shred the pledge card so your information will stay secure. Remember there are two matches for each donation. For example, if you give $100, we will actually receive $250 for the kids we will serve.

ICE CREAM SOCIAL

On Saturday, April 13, 2024 at 2 p.m., it’s Ice Cream Social Day in McCay Hall! We had so much fun at the Strawberry Shortcake gathering, we decided to do it all over again with ice cream. As with our last event, pay what you like at the door and all the proceeds go to Emmanuel missions.
