I bought 4 of these for congregants who, after 2 years of attending my UM church, thru prayer and discernment, decided to join, becoming members of the church. While all 4 have strong faith and belief, all 4 had been members of other denominations. On the Sunday we held New Members joining, I gave them each a pin and a few words about UM heritage, what the cross and flame stands for, and how God is with them. Each pin came in a box, so I simply wrapped. Everyone really appreciated the symbolism of the gift and the gift itself.
I ordered United Methodist Lapel Pins for members of the board who were going off the board at the end of the year. The pins are well made, beautiful, well priced and excellent as gifts. I am very pleased.
