Giving and Stewardship


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

Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God's children, whenever and wherever we can. Life grows here through the joy of generosity. Click the button below to make an online gift or choose any of the other giving options.
