In 2017, our stewardship focus is “Made to Thrive.” The definition of “thrive” is to grow vigorously, to flourish, to bloom. As we look toward our future as a church with renewed hope and promise, we are reminded that anything is possible with God. It is time church. Let’s put our gifts and talent, joy and faith together as we move forward into the abundant vision that God has for us! God made us to thrive. Please consider how you can help the church thrive in 2017 through your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. Whatever your commitment, the decision you make now will help move us forward.
It has been a few weeks now since we had our Made to Thrive Commitment Sunday. Here's where we stand on reaching our stewardship goals for 2017:
#1: 255 households pledged (Goal: 400)
#2: $1,367,008 pledged (Goal: $2 million)
#3: 132 households "step up" their pledge over last year's (Goal: 250)
#4: 105 households give automatically (Goal: 175)
As you can see, we still have a little way to go to meet our goals! It's not too late to submit a commitment for 2017! You may do so any time at bit.ly/thrive2017 or using a commitment card (available in the pew backs, brochure racks, and church office). If you are ready to set up your online giving, go to bit.ly/give-fumcg-2017.
Please prayerfully consider how you will uphold your personal commitment to prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness in the coming year. We encourage you to complete your commitment using the form below. Alternatively, commitment cards will be available in the pew backs starting Sunday, October 16, or you may pick one up in the church office.
For best results, please make sure pop-ups are allowed on your browser (this will allow the form to notify you if required items are incomplete). We suggest the use of Chrome, Firefox or IE (not compatible with Safari).
