    • Worship by Giving Online

      The Bible encourages us to give generously, consistently and joyfully for the ministries of the church and for its buildings and facilities.  We can do this by tithing which is setting aside money to give each week. I Cor. 16:2, 2 Cor. 9:7, Matt. 6:19-21. The tithe is a specific amount (10% of your income) that you give first, and an offering is anything extra that you give beyond that.

      We encourage all of our givers to sign up and use our online giving platform as an easy way to tithe and give. This platform will also allow for direct deposits or payments through your bank – ACH giving which has lower fees than credit cards. Click the blue image below or here to sign-up and/or give online.

      Upper Room Daily Devotional

      The Upper Room magazine’s mission is to provide a model of practical Christianity, accessible in varied formats, to help people feel invited and welcomed into God’s presence to:

      • commune with God in prayer;
      • see their daily choices and small acts of obedience as part of God’s work;
      • realize our connection through Christ as a universal family of believers;
      • encounter the living Christ and be transformed into Christ’s likeness."

    • Spiritual Gifts Inventory

      The Strategic Planning Committee of Camphor Memorial United Methodist Church invites all members to complete the Spiritual Gifts Inventory. The purpose of the inventory is to help you discover your spiritual gifts and then to prayerfully consider ways to utilize these gifts for the advancement of the Kingdom of God and the making of disciples within the church, the mission of Camphor Memorial UMC. These God-given gifts are meant to be shared, not stored away. They are meant to honor God, revitalize the Church and reach a lost generation for Christ.

      Our spiritual journey requires all of us to GROW in our understanding of what it means to be like Christ, a Christian, from the time we accepted Christ until death or His return. Assessing our spiritual growth helps us to think carefully about our current spiritual development and to begin working on an intentional plan for personal growth.

      Remember, it's not about our efforts. Becoming like Christ centers on His work in us and not our work for Him. God desires heart change over religious actions. God does the renewing, the empowering and the recreating. Our part as His disciple is to do the yielding, the submitting, and the obeying. We sincerely hope you will prayerfully and enthusiastically join the church in assessing your God-given spiritual gifts and use those gifts, interests and abilities in ministry in our church.

      Click here to take online survey   After you complete the survey, save the results* and forward an email copy to   (or you may mail/drop-off hard copy:  Camphor Memorial UMC, Attn: Lay Leader, 5620 Wyalusing Ave, Philadelphia  19131.)  You will be contacted by the Lay Leader to discuss how you would like to utilize your spiritual gifts to advance the mission of the church and its current initiatives.  THANK YOU for helping Camphor Memorial's efforts to help build-up strong people and strong communities through the work of our Spiritually Alive church!
