Since 1783, First United Methodist Church of Salisbury has provided a Christian ministry through the generous financial support of its members. The annual operating budget of the Church is underwritten by unrestricted gifts pledged annually to that budget by church members. This operating budget provides salaries and benefits to staff and supports a variety of missions and ministries sponsored by the church. While a Stewardship team undertakes an annual giving campaign in support of the operating budget as well as support for facilities maintenance, the operating budget is set and managed by the Church Finance Committee. All members are urged to support the ministries of the church through gifts to these annual budgets.
We give thanks for all gifts that support the Church's ministry. Above and beyond contributions to the operating budget, we also thank God for legacy gifts, when the funds are invested and subsequently bless the Church in perpetuity.
