TD Bank’s Affinity Program is coming to FUMC. The Finance Committee has joined the plan where the bank will contribute $ once a year to our church based on the number of accounts and the amount of money in the various accounts. Members enroll in the program at TD to have their accounts qualify for this charitable gift.  There is no cost to the account holder and participation is confidential. (Only the bank knows your personal details.)  More information coming soon.
