We’re not embarrassed to talk about money, because we know that what we do with our money is one of the ways we express our deepest values, the things that are most important to us.
The language we use in the church for giving often refers to “stewardship”, which means to serve as one who manages another’s property, finances, or other affairs. Stewardship is a way of life that recognizes that the earth, and everything we have, is God’s, and we are simply managing those resources while they are ours to hold.
Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God’s children…whenever and wherever we can. We try to live out our congregation’s calling to be the heart, spirit and hands of God’s outreaching love.
The money that the church receives goes both toward our ministries in Midtown Sacramento, and toward the ministries that we undertake in connection with other United Methodist churches in California-Nevada and throughout the world.
