At Unionville Alliance Church, we believe that giving donations to our ministries, our community and abroad is an act of worship. We acknowledge that all we are and all that we have comes from God (James 1:17). We recognize God as the ultimate owner of all things, and we put Him first in our finances (Proverbs 3:9-10). We strive to learn to give on God's terms, and as we do so, we discover the blessing of stepping out in faith and obedience (Malachi 3:10, 10; Luke 6:38).
Every Sunday during our worship service, we offer everyone the opportunity to give to further the kingdom of God through the ministries of Unionville Alliance Church. If you are new to Unionville Alliance Church or are visiting, please do not feel pressured to give.
Operating Fund = our general fund and covers all our operating expenses
Community Care Fund = goes towards our Master's Pantry (food bank and free store) and Community Care program (financial aid for those in need)
Missions Fund = goes toward all mission areas, locally and abroad
There may be other periodic needs that arise (i.e. Capitol Fund, Hampers of Hope program, Kids Kapers Scholarships, etc)
WAYS TO GIVE
Each gift will be credited to your charitable donation account, and a receipt will be issued in February of each year for the donations received in the previous year. This program is run through our church Finance Department, and stringent confidentiality procedures are maintained.

"Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it."
MALACHI 3:10 (NIV)
