GIVING - Stepping Forward in Faith


steppingforward_stewardshipplan

Last fall the Strategic Planning Group (SPG) met with members of the St. James congregation to hear about the direction and dreams that we have for our church. Several recurring themes emerged from these Listening Sessions, which the SPG summarized and brought before the Church Council.

With the approval from the Church Council, St. James UMC has prayerfully committed to focus on three areas of ministry for the upcoming year:

  1. Nurturing Children and Youth
  2. Building Community
  3. Worshiping With Excellence

Fully funding efforts in these three focus areas and meeting other needs of the church cannot be done within our previous budget. However, we estimate that we can accomplish our goals with an weekly increase of $10 from each regular contributor.

God is at work here at St. James United Methodist Church. We celebrate God’s provision and listen carefully to discern where He is leading us.

If you are not currently tithing, we challenge you to step forward in faith and move in that direction. We noted a goal of an $10 increase in the average weekly giving per contributor.  

Whether you are giving 1% of your income, 10% of your income, or more, we encourage you to increase your giving in 2016. God is the provider of all that we have. We encourage you to return a greater share of what he has provided to accomplish the ministry and mission that He has laid out for us.

We hope that you will be inspired to prayerfully consider your commitment to St. James UMC for 2016. We invite you to bring your estimate of giving to worship on Sunday, October 25, 2015.
