Seedling Financial Ministry makes loans available to churches within the Susquehanna conference of the United Methodist Church (“SUSUMC”) to acquire, construct, renovate and repair church property through financial support from investments made by SUSUMC churches and individual members of SUSUMC churches.

“You are working with people that are invested in you and in furthering your ministry.”  - Rev. George Reynolds (Linglestown Life UMC)

“We want to be looking forward to how we can use this facility that we have invested in and how we have been able to grow the congregation as a result of expanding our ministry.” – Rev. George Reynolds (Linglestown Life UMC)

“We are very excited about the possibilities now that we will have a building that we can utilize and do the things we want to do.” – Debra Daugherty, Parishioner (Marion First UMC)

Seedling Financial Ministry “helped the ministry of the church in a multitude of ways. It opened up space for ministries that otherwise would not have been possible.” – Pastor Thomas Harmic, Calvary UMC Lawrenceville

The interest we pay on the loan “is part of the connection and that is going to benefit somebody else. That’s the reason we went back to [Seedling Financial Ministry], knowing that the money came from other investors and what we pay back is going to help other churches as well.” - Pastor Thomas Harmic, Calvary UMC Lawrenceville

“We knew that the money we paid back would be reinvested in other congregations that had supported us.” - Carl Metteson, Lay Leader Calvary UMC, Lawrenceville

“We purchased a house that is used as a food bank, clothing bank and a low-income rental unit for families that may not be able to afford full rent.” – Pastor Thomas Harmic, Calvary UMC Lawrenceville

“Organizations like Boy Scouts, AA and other community membership groups…have an opportunity to come to a local facility that is comfortable, safe and economical for them.” – Drew Wright, Finance Committee, Calvary UMC, Lawrenceville

“We have been a safe sanctuary for supervised visitation through our local Children and Youth Services Program. We are open both physically and spiritually for families to use our facilities.” – Carl Metteson, Lay Leader Calvary UMC, Lawrenceville
