All churches are assigned an apportionment from the Virginia Conference. This apportionment includes a few traditional mission projects/support for education, ministerial needs, connectional ministries, campus ministries, and Conference activities. This is called First Mile Giving. It is one of the parts that perpetuates the concept of Methodism as a connectional ministry.
Stephens City United Methodist Church values this relationship and pays its apportionment in full. SCUMC also participates in the Second Mile Giving and Beyond. SCUMC provides monetary support to most of these missions, some missions receive support in the form of food donations, building use, and church volunteers.
