When we join the Methodist Church, we vow to faithfully participate in its ministries by our prayers, our presence, our gifts, our service and our witness. Alongside that vow, our Leadership Council has set goals for 2018 to increase our attendance by 10%, work toward 25 new professions of faith and increase our overall giving as each family is encouraged to increase their annual pledge by 1-2%.
Please take a few minutes to review our 2018 Stewardship booklet. You can download a copy here. This booklet tells a story of God’s faithfulness to a little congregation that began in a worn-out house up on a hillside. God is now calling us, St. Barnabas, to reach out and exhibit that same generosity.
Are you ready to step up for 2018?
- Please prayerfully consider what you can give during 2018.
- Download and complete the 2018 Commitment of Generosity Card. Bring or mail the card to the church by February 11, Consecration Sunday, and stay after worship for a Chili Cook-Off celebration.
Sharing this estimate of giving enables our leaders to make decisions for our future and ensures that your sacrifice goes as far as possible toward our mission of connecting to God, to each other and the world.
