"Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver." (2 Corinthians 9:7)
The goal of the Methodist church is to "Love God, Love Others, Change the World." In order to live this out, we believe that each follower of Jesus should be a good steward of what God has given us.
Whether it's our time, our talents, our gifts or our financial resources, we believe that we are called to use them for the glory of God, the love of others, and the transformation of the world.
Throughout this website you will find ways in which time and talents can be used in this way. At our worship services you will have the opportunity to invest financially in our ministry as well. We ask that you will use these opportunities to share in the ministries of this community of faith.
The annual stewardship campaign is held each fall, usually in October or November. We consider stewardship to be ongoing and have several convenient ways for you to give.
