Edenton Street United Methodist Church is pleased to announce that it has expanded giving alternatives and will now accept credit cards for charitable contributions.  However, we encourage the responsible use of credit cards.  The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 8:12 (NIV) “For if the willingness is there, the gift is acceptable according to what one has, not according to what one does not have.”  At Edenton Street, giving responsibly is from abundance and not through debt.
