Giving God Your Best

How are you living out your membership vow to be faithful in upholding the church with your prayers, your presence, your gifts, your service, and your witness? Are you giving God your best?

Giving is a part of being a disciple of Jesus Christ and the ministries of your church depend on your gifts, your prayers, your presence, your service and your witness.

Online Giving through the use of a debit card or electronic checks is now available.  You will need to create an account through our West Market Connect to access this new method of making your contributions to the church.  Automatic debits can be set up to make your giving easier and more consistent.  If you have questions, contact Scott Nowlan or Sonya McCaul at the church office at 336.275.4587.

Spirit Walk and Engraved Pavers - Front Courtyard

Courtyard Paver UMW Prayer Shawl MinistryThe first group of engraved pavers has been installed in front of the sanctuary and orders are now being taken for the second “batch”. A paver is a great way to celebrate a significant event in your church life, be it a wedding, a birth, confirmation, baptism, or just to recognize a special ministry or person in your faith journey. Downloadable order forms are available here on our website. Forms are also available in the church office, by mail or e-mail upon request, or on the display table in the Gathering Space. Be sure to visit the courtyard to see the pavers that are in place and order today.

We hope you are as excited as we are about our "face lift" at the front entrance to the church! We have made the church entrance more attractive, more welcoming and accessible, safer, and more maintenance-friendly...at the same time showcasing one of the community's most beautiful and historic landmarks.

A special part of the project is the "Spirit Walk" along the sidewalk portion of the courtyard...where bricks will be interspersed with contrasting 8"x8" pavers, each engraved with a word reflecting one of the "Fruits of the Spirit" - Love, Peace, Joy, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control.

We have also created Memorial and Honor sections where church members may celebrate the memory or milestones (birth, baptism, marriage, service to the church, etc.), of members of one's own family or of the church family by engraving on one of the standard 4"x8" pavers.

The purchase of these engraved pavers will, of course, help defray the considerable cost of the beautification project.

Prices for Engraved Pavers:

  • $100.00 each 4" x 8" Memorial or Honor pavers
  • $200.00 each 8" x 8" Spirit pavers
  • $250.00 package (1) 4" x 8" paver AND (1) 8" x 8" Spirit paver


A downloadable order form is available here
. As you will see, inscriptions are limited by the space available on the paver...3 lines, 18 characters per line.

Order forms with payment attached (make checks payable to WMSUMC) can be mailed to the church at: West Market Street United Methodist Church, P. O. Box 870, Greensboro, NC 27402; or they may be turned in to the church office.

If you have questions, contact Rev. Scott Nowlan in the church office at 336.275.4587.
