Dear Members and Friends of First United Methodist Church,

Stewardship is the ministry of taking care of what God has given us so that we have the strength and ability to give our gifts and our service to God's church. In the time of COVID, this may require some new thinking. For those of us who must spend much of our time at home or who are having financial difficulties or who must be first responders, traditional offering envelopes and church activities may not work very well. Here are some alternative suggestions:

  • Financial Stewardship

    • Electronic giving. FUMC offers you two electronic giving services. One automatically deposits your gift each week or each month of the next year by an amount you specify by filling out a single pledge form; the other allows you to click a button (above) on our church webpage that makes a single deposit in an amount you specify through the web page. Details will appear in the next stewardship letter.​

    • U.S. Mail: you can mail your gift to the church office weekly or monthly. This can be a pledged amount or an amount that you can give at that time.

    • Traditional offering envelopes will continue to be available.

  • Service Stewardship (my thanks to the Mutual Ministry Team for some of these suggestions)

    • Serve on a church committee or group (the committee structure may be reorganized this coming year to make this easier and more efficient)​

    • Bible studies/discussion of church-related matters via Zoom or social media

    • Contact members of our church who have become isolated by the pandemic by phone or email

    • During warmer weather, have church meetings outside with social distancing.

The members of the first church in Jerusalem found their faith strengthened by their stewardship (Acts 4:32). Stewardship can help FUMC in our troubled times as well by helping us rethink and renew our faith.

Yours in Christ,

Larry Griffith

Financial Secretary
