Stewardship & Generosity

Stewardship – to serve as one who manages another’s property, finances or other affairs – is not just a means for the church to raise money. It is a way of life that recognizes that everything we have is God’s, and we are simply managing those resources while here on earth.


The Bible is filled with examples of grateful response to God’s generous gifts. The Bible also teaches about responsibility to share with others and warns against selfishness and misuse of God’s economic resources.

Methodist Approach to Stewardship

John Wesley urged those in connection with him to “Earn all you can and save all you can, so that you can give all you can.” He modeled modest living and sacrificial giving. Wesley made sure those early classes of “methodists” took weekly offerings for outreach.


Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God’s children…whenever and wherever we can, just as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes when the crowd grew hungry. Through our congregation, we are the heart, spirit and hands of God’s outreaching love.


One of the great things about donating to GVUMC is that you really know where your donations go! For example, a dollar donated means the full dollar to the fund selected.
