A Life of Generosity

Giving at Christ UMC

At Christ United Methodist Church, we believe that God owns everything. All that we have, even our very lives, are held in trust to be used for the glory of God.  We understand that we cannot even begin to repay God for the blessings and  grace God gives us all.

Giving, then, is not something God needs nor is it something that earns our salvation; rather, it is an act of personal devotion and worship.  Giving is an outward sign of our reliance, not upon “stuff” like money, but God.

We are a non-profit organization that, by God’s grace, exists because people faithfully give to the mission of God in this place (“to make disciples of Jesus Christ”).  Donations are used to bless people who are in need, to provide spiritual and community resources, and for the daily expenses of running the church.
