UMCmarket is the United Methodist Church’s gateway to micro-donations through online shopping. UMCmarket has been vetted and proven by the United Methodist Church’s General Council of Finance and Administration, GCFA, as a new way to create income-streams to our local churches and their ministries. All donations acquired through the member’s shopping goes directly to our churches or church-related organizations.
Get started: Go to UMCmarket and join by entering your email address and a password of your choice in the box down to the left.
Find our church: Enter “Good Shepherd” (without the quotes) in the middle box. Scroll down until you find “Church of the Good Shepherd Philadelphia, PA.” Join our church.
Time to shop: Browse through all the categories and choose to shop from hundreds of stores. Every time you shop the stores will donate a portion of your purchase back to our church. Make sure to log in before going to the stores and to have an empty shopping cart before you start to shop. Also, you need to complete your purchase within 24 hours to be eligible for a donation.
