Why We Give

As Christians, we recognize everything we have comes from God, and we are simply sharing these gifts for Kingdom work. Through our tithes and offerings, 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, 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: worship, programs for children and students, Bible studies, small groups, pastoral care and support, mission trips, community service, and building and operational needs.

An Approach To Giving

We pray that you examine your personal giving and how it reflects your commitment to Christ. During this time, we encourage you to

 PRAY for God to lead you on new steps in your faith journey.

DEEPEN your sense of generosity and gratitude.

DISCOVER the joy of giving.

GIVE a percentage of your income.

UNDERSTAND that stewardship is about raising disciples, not money.
