UMCmarket is a new online shopping community designed especially for members of The United Methodist Church.
The portal, www.umcmarket.org, provides access to popular retailers. Members can shop online whenever they want. With each purchase, a percentage of the sale can go to the church the shopper chooses. Membership is free and it takes less than a minute to join.
Bobby Lee Smith, manager of corporate sponsorship and UMC Giving for the General Council on Finance and Administration, said, "This secure online shopping portal is an easy way for church members and their friends to support the mission and ministries of their local church. Members can immediately begin supporting their church ministries by signing up at www.umcmarket.org."
Local churches can receive information on how to add the link to their website by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or contacting Smith at 615-369-2407.
