Giving at First Methodist

Giving is an act of worship.

Generosity is not our way of raising a budget, it is God’s way of raising disciples.

We believe that generosity is a spiritual practice that recognizes that everything we have is God’s, and we are simply managing those resources while here on earth. Through the giving of our financial resources, we learn to rely less on ourselves and more on God. As our trust in God grows, we begin to see our use of money as a way to deepen our relationship with God. Our gifts demonstrate in a tangible way our love for God and our neighbor.
