“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7
Stewardship:The devout investment or use of money, time and ability. In biblical times, a steward supervised a household or an estate. Today, as God’s children, we deem God the source of all we have, seek to hold it in trust for God and desire to be “good stewards of the manifold grace of God.” (1 Peter 4:10a) Source: Sharing God’s Gifts Glossary of United Methodist Terms
People of faith come together to worship God and grow spiritually from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Christians gather in what we call a church–a place for worship, caring, serving, and fellowship. People are the church and we know that our physical place of worship must be kept up and the church’s missions supported financially. In simple terms, giving financial support is how church members show their love of God and desire to maintain their place of worship and fulfill church missions.
