Life Stewardship

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship means to serve as one who manages another's property, finances or other affairs – it is not just means for the church to raise money. It is a way of life that recognizes that everything we have is God’s, and we are simply managing those resources while here on earth.

The Bible is filled with examples of grateful response to God's generous gifts. The Bible also teaches about our personal responsibility to share with others and warns against selfishness and misuse of God's economic resources.

John Wesley urged those in connection with him to "Earn all you can and save all you can, so that you can give all you can." He modeled modest living and sacrificial giving. Wesley made sure those early classes of "methodists" took weekly offerings to help others in need.

Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God's children…whenever and wherever we can. Through our congregation, we are the heart and hands of God's love.
