Christmas Altar Rail Gifts

Jesus was born 2018 years ago.  He had a barn for a hospital and a king after his head.  But at least he had loving parents who protected and cared for him.  There are a lot of children in this age who are not so lucky. They are born to parents who can’t care for them; they are born to parents who don’t want to care for them; they are born with disabilities that their parents have no idea how to…

3rd Grade Bible Presentation

Studying Scripture is one of the most important ways we learn about God. FUMC presents personal Bibles to each third-grade student as a statement of their growing faith development and as recognition of their being old enough to study Scripture on their own. We celebrate the tradition of presenting Bibles to our third-grade students as a gift from the congregation. It is our prayer that this gift will be a starting point for a deeper relationship with God through Christ,…

Giving

Giving and financial stewardship are vital parts of the life of any disciple of Jesus Christ. Of course, the church needs the financial support of those who are part of its ministry, but that is not the primary reason we give. More important than the ministry program’s need for funds is the Christian’s need to give. We believe that everything we own belongs to God and that God calls us to give back to him a significant portion of what He has entrusted to us. We do this primarily through our giving to the church, and regular, systematic giving is important as we live out our faith. Tithing (giving 10% of our income) or proportional giving is the practice that best demonstrates this practice.
