2019 Stewardship

Grateful people are happy people, research shows. But how grateful are you? To find out—and discover steps for promoting even more gratitude in your life—take this GRATITUDE QUIZ, (provided by UMC) which is based on a scale developed by psychologists Mitchel Adler and Nancy Fagley.  When you’re done, you’ll get your gratitude score, learn more about the benefits of gratitude, and find resources for cultivating more gratitude in your life.

God is good all the time.  All the time God is good.  We live in a world of abundance because our God is abundant.  God’s generosity is evident in the beauty of creation and the abundance of God’s love and grace in Jesus Christ.  We praise God every day in our prayers and every Sunday in our corporate worship.  Every ministry of our Church is based on the abundant grace of God.  We Connect one another and the community to Christ, we Grow to maturity in Christ, we Care for one another in Christian community, and we Send one another in ministry and mission.

Dear Heavenly Father,

Our church community is composed of people like me;   I help make FUMC what it is.

FUMC will be friendly …… IF I am.

                            FUMC pews will be filled …… IF  I help fill them.

            FUMC will do great work ……  IF  I work.

     FUMC will be prayerful …… IF I Pray.

FUMC will make generous gifts to many causes …… IF I am a generous giver.

                        FUMC will bring others people into worship & fellowship …… IF I invite and bring them.

FUMC will be full of love & loyalty, fearlessness & faith, and a noble spirit ……

  IF I, making FUMC what it is, am filled with these same things.

Therefore, with your help, O God, I shall dedicate myself 

to the task of being all things that I want FUMC to be

 Through Christ our Lord     AMEN!!
