Frequently Asked Questions
 

Is giving online a safe way to give?

Of course!  Our online giving is managed through Paypal, which has a phenomenal record for safe ways to buy, sell, and donate online.  For more information about Paypal's security, please see their website.

Despite all your assurances, I'm still not comfortable giving online.  Can I give another way?

Certainly!  You can mail your donation to 201 Lincoln Ave. E., Cranford, NJ 07016 and our office manager will be happy to make sure your donation gets added to the weekly offering.  If you'd like a more human touch, feel free to stop by between 9:00am and 12:00pm to talk to Angela in person!  You can also make your donation during the offering during our 10:00am Sunday service.

I know my donation goes to the church, but what does that mean?  What exactly am I supporting by giving money to Cranford United Methodist Church?

We did some extensive research into that very question!  If you click the button above that says "Your Dollar," it will explain all of that for you in terms of how much of every dollar goes to different areas of the church.  These areas can include building upkeep, music and worship arts, youth and children's ministries, and many more!  You can also see our mission outreaches on our Missions page.

That's great, but what if I feel really passionately about supporting one specific area?  Does only 4% of my donation go to it?

Donations will default to the distributions listed in the "Your Dollar" button.  However, if you want your donation to go only to pastoral minstries, for example, simply include a note in the donation from Paypal saying that's where you'd like it to go.
