Save the Bells of SUMC

$985 of $200,000 goal

Raised by 9 people in 39 months
We are hoping to bring awareness to our church bell tower which is in desperate need of repair. The slightest vibration could cause more damage. For this reason we have had to turn off our bells which normally ring on the quarter, half and full hour every day. People in Stroudsburg love hearing the bells and we are very saddened by this case of events.  The cost of the repairs will be $200,000.  Please consider donating toward an extremely worthwhile cause.  Let's work together and get our bells ringing again!

Thanks to everyone who has donated so generously to our bell tower repair project. More damage has been found recently. We've been blessed with good weather lately and the guys have been working consistently to get this job done!

We have reached out to many community resources in order to raise funds to repair our church bell tower. Most recently we had an on air spot on the Gary in the Morning show and we also had a meeting with Representative David Parker to discuss options to raise money. Stroudsburg United Methodist Church does a lot for our community - some of which you may not be aware of - we have two soup kitchens weekly, we host families through Family Promise throughout the year, we have Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts from Pack 86 meeting here weekly (They also hold community events throughout the year here in our church), we support Oasis of Love, a local food pantry located here in Stroudsburg. These are just a few of the outreach programs we have here at SUMC that benefit the community. These are in addition to our worship services held each Sunday. Please continue to share this page with your friends, neighbors, coworkers, family - EVERYONE! Every little bit helps. Work should be starting soon so keep checking for updates. We all miss the bells so let's pull together and give back whatever you can to help support our bell tower repairs! Thank you to all who have donated so far!

I grew up listening to these bells. I lived on Scott St too and I could hear them every day. I hope they are restored quickly.
