Angel Tree

It's that time of year again!  

Help us make Christmas a little jollier for those less fortunate in our community as we come together for our annual Angel Tree

We will have our Christmas Tree set up starting November 12 in Todd Hall where you can come by and choose an angel or two (or more!)!

We ask that if you pick an angel you purchase an age-appropriate gift and bring it back to Todd Hall and place it underneath the tree in a gift bag, unwrapped, labelled with your angel's name.

If you would prefer the church staff or volunteers to purchase gifts for an angel in your stead please go to the Angel Tree link on our Giving Page.

Our church has the opportunity to help brighten Christmas for 117 little angels this year.

Thank you all.

Thank You for Your Pledges

We want to thank everyone who filled out pledge and interest cards this year for their willingness to share their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness with the church family here at FUMC San Marcos.  We truly could not do what we do without the support of our generous church family.  We look forward to continuing our ministries within the church, the local community, and globally as we enter into the new year together.  

If you did not get an opportunity to fill out a pledge card, it's not too late!  There will be pledge cards set out in the back of all three services if you'd like to fill them out.

Spam Emails

    Last weekend, a series of scam emails were sent claiming to be Pastor Adam Knapp and making requests for private meetings and asking for favors and email information.

These are not from Adam or any member of the church staff.    

We will never email any church member, staff person, or any other person to request a favor or seek a private meeting.      

Additionally, we will never, ever ask for gift cards, personal information, or your email information. If you receive any email from me that seems suspicious, please contact us at the church office. Do not give out your personal information and do not purchase gift cards.

Text to Give

Sometimes we feel called to give, but it's not convinient.  We don't always have access to our checkbook, cash, or even a card.  We almost always have our phones though.

We have a Text-to-Give Option available for giving to our church!

It is quick and easy to set up, and you can give once or set up recurring payments if you'd like.  

If you text (855) 485-1827 you will receive information on how to directly set up giving on your phone.  

Minimum $5 donation per payment.
