									Thoughts on Christian giving
“Will you be
loyal to the
United
Methodist
Church, and
uphold it by your
prayers, your
presence, your
gifts, and your
                    I will.
service?”
“Use  your God-given
gifts well and wisely,
to earn all you can,
that you might
practice frugality and
save all you can, that
you might have more
than enough so that
you are able to give
all you can.”            John Wesley
F everyone to
 rom
whom much has been
given, much will be
required; and from the
one to whom much has
been entrusted, even
more will be
demanded.

 of the manifold grace
 of God, serve one
 another with
 whatever gift each of
 you has received.

has blessed us,
and we set aside
money regularly
and purposefully
Christian
stewardship is
love and
commitment,
not just
performance or
obligation
Christian
stewardship is
about relationship
with God and
neighbor, not just
about money, and
not just about
support of the
church
We focus on how we manage
God’s blessings and how to
respond most appropriately to
God’s goodness.
,
We become servants not of the
church, but of God through the
church.
We experience a life-changing
transformation, from “doing” to
“being”.
We focus much of our time, energy and
resources to reaching out to the spiritually
needy.
Our church becomes a vehicle that connects
people to God through Jesus Christ.
We create disciples and stewards.
Stewardship
is about
relationship
with God
How is God calling
you to use your
TIME, TALENT and
TREASURES
