Thank you for your generosity!

Our church is supported almost entirely by donations from our members and friends. Our annual operations cost for staff, building and programs is approximately $485,000. 20-30% of our budget is used to support mission and ministry outside of our church. Prayerful consideration is given to all financial decisions.

Special Giving Opportunities

Throughout the year we offer opportunities to give above and beyond your regular giving. This could be for UMC Special Sundays, needs at VUMC, or to help with relief efforts both domestically and abroad. Current opportunities are:

Lenten Offering

Your special Lenten offering can be designated towards the following:

Haiti Earthquake Relief – Rebuilding Destroyed Homes

Your donations will help families, still homeless since the August 14, 2021 earthquake, to rebuild and repair their homes.

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit organization that helps provide families with affordable house by building or improving places to call home.

The Lord’s Table – Sarah Jane Johnson UMC

Sarah Jane Johnson UMC has been serving the needy in our  community since 1986 by hosting a family meal every Tuesday.  Members of Vestal UMC have faithfully helped serve for many years.  Your contributions will help support the purchase of food for these meals.

The Rescue Mission

The Rescue Mission has served the homeless and poor in the love  of Christ since 1887. For many years, it was one mission and one city.  The RM fed and housed alcoholic men living on the edge of the Erie Canal in Syracuse.   Today, they serve the homeless and poor in the love of Christ in Syracuse, Cayuga County and Broome County.  While it’s now three communities, it’s still one mission.  Volunteers from Vestal UMC have helped serve meals at the Rescue Mission once a month.  Your donations will help feed these men.

General Funds

Our church continues our quest to balance our budget this year and your donations will help, not only to balance our year, but to grow our mission and ministry
