This year’s campaign reminds us that We Are Still the Church, and we still depend on the generous support of each and every Belmonter. Our video for October 18 shares stories from Belmonters who have been touched by the ministries of Belmont UMC. In addition to this week’s video, be sure to watch our “I pledge because . . .” videos below to see why your fellow Belmonters support the ministries of Belmont UMC.

Operating Pledge Campaign FAQs

  • Why should I pledge?
    • Your pledge, along with the pledges of your fellow Belmonters, help our leadership set our budget, including ministry budgets and staff salaries. It helps us know what ministries and projects we can plan for through 2021.
    • Your pledge is a tangible way that you live out your membership vows of supporting Belmont United Methodist Church through your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
  • How do I make my pledge for 2021?
    • There are lots of ways to let us know how much you’d like to pledge.
      • You can fill out a pledge card and drop it in the mail to P.O. Box 120098, Nashville, TN 37212 by October 25th. Contact the church office to receive a pledge card if you didn't receive one in the mail.
      • You can make a pledge online through onrealm.org. Watch the video above for instructions. Need help creating a Realm account or logging in? Contact the church office.
      • You can call Emily Bowland (615-383-08 ext. 20) at the church and make your pledge over the phone.
      • You can email your pledge to emily@belmontumc.org
  • What if I need to change my pledge?
    • No problem! Just Emily Bowland (615-383-0832 ext 20) to make an adjustment.
  • Can I pay all or part of my 2021 pledge in 2020?
    • Yes! For some people, there may be a tax savings by giving money in 2020 to be applied towards your 2021 pledge. Check with your financial advisor to determine what is best for your situation. If you decide to pre-pay your pledge, just mark “2021 pre-paid pledge” in the “for” line of your check and make sure it is at the church or postmarked by December 31, 2020.
