Through our tithes, offerings and pledges, we demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbors. Each year, we ask our members to commit to their tithes, and offerings for the coming year in support of our church’s ministry and mission. We do this for three reasons:
- All we have is a gift from God, so we believe that giving to God’s work is an act of worship.
- At FUMC| Downtown Bentonville, giving is an expectation of membership. The church does not specify how much an individual should give, but we hope each person will commit a percentage of their income and increase that amount as they are able.

Annual giving makes possible: a place for worship, programs for children, youth and adults. Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips and community projects.
