You can Give to the Lord through serving and giving financially at Fellowship.
In June, Pastor Jim gave us an important update on Fellowship's summer financial status. To read his full letter, click here.
SERVING (GIVE YOUR TIME AND SKILLS):
There are many opportunities to support Fellowship’s mission through serving with your time and skills.
"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace." 1 Peter 4:10
There are several ways you can give (including a tax-deductible option for US taxpayers) which are detailed below.
"On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keeping with his income." 1 Corinthians 16:2
Ways to Give Financially:
You can make a direct transfer to Fellowship's local bank account using the details below.
Branch and Branch code: Abu Dhabi Main Branch; 101

Like many churches here we can only accept cheques in AED made out to ‘The Evangelical Church‘ (NOT to Fellowship).
You can make CASH donations at any of our services.
US Dollar Cheque
US taxpayers can receive a tax deduction for offerings. Cheques must be in US dollars and made payable to “Fellowship of the Woodlands Church, Inc.”, a church in the US with whom we have an arrangement to accept and manage donations on our behalf. Please include a memo on the cheque, which says “Fellowship Dubai”. Cheques can be given at our Friday services for forwarding on (please allow around 4 weeks for cheques to be cashed).
Giving online is possible through Woodlands Church's website. You’ll need to create an online account and choose "Dubai - UAE" under the Giving Types drop-down menu. (Note that this is critical to ensure your gift is directed to Dubai - UAE.) US taxpayers may receive a tax credit for their donation.
Where does my money go?
Your donations pay for the ministry here at Fellowship which includes the cost of staff, the upkeep of the property and the ministry facilities that we share. Offertories are used to share the Gospel locally and globally.
Please note that your giving is anonymous. No staff member and only a few church leaders on our finance team see the details of contributions made by members via cheques or online.
We welcome any questions about our finances and invite you to speak to any of the Leadership Team or Finance Team at any time. For further information about our finances please contact Michelle Hagar, the Finance Team Leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
