The members of Bashford UMC believe strongly in helping those in need. We support worthy projects at the local, state, national and international levels.

One parishioner said, “Special Sundays are an opportunity for me to walk the talk. My world is so small, and by participating in these offerings, I help people who are beyond my limited reach.”

“Be generous,” Ecclesiastes 11:1-2 (The Message) advises. “Invest in acts of charity. Charity yields high returns. . . . Be a blessing to others.” God has blessed us, and through churchwide Special Sundays we can pass on those blessings to others.

“God loves it when the giver delights in the giving. God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done.”
--2 Corinthians 9:7-8, The Message
