Emmanuel UMC will match dollar for dollar up to $3000 gifts to this fund with Emmanuel Outreach Funds and funds will be allocated to the programs according to need.

Emmanuel UMC tithes from all bequests the church receives, we put 10% of the money we get from bequests into an Outreach Fund that is used to provide outreach ministries like: Quality of Life retreats for persons living with HIV/AIDS, Nicaraguan Scholarship Fund which helps impoverished Nicaraguans attend college, Several Scholarships for College for active Emmanuel young adults, youth mission teams, Little Flowers Child Development Center, and more.
