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.
Bank: ADCB Branch and Branch code: Abu Dhabi Main Branch; 101 Address: P O Box 2934, Abu Dhabi Account Title: The Evangelical Church Account Number: 10120 02440 2001 SWIFT Address: ADCB AE AAX XX IBAN: AE46 0030 0101 2002 4402 001
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.
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 the Finance Team at any time. For further information about our finances please contact Michelle Hagar, the Finance Team Leader, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
**It was recently brought to our attention that some of our US-based givers are experiencing difficulty giving to Woodlands Church via the link on our website. We are currently speaking with Woodlands to see if there is a solution or an alternative giving method. In the interim, please contact email@example.com for assistance with any online giving issues.
