As was announced in worship this past weekend, almost two-thirds of Manchester UMC’s households have made a financial commitment for 2020 so far. Prior to the weekend, there were 436 commitments made; there are 730 households in the congregation.
This is wonderful! Thank you so much!
groovy would it be if we could get to 100% participation in our “Look Up – Go
Beyond” campaign? That would mean that every single household in the
congregation was a part of the amazing work being done in and through the
congregation. Every single household, committed to making a difference for
Christ in the world. That would be amazing!
The amount doesn’t matter; it is the intent that really matters. Our financial commitments are expressions of gratitude that emerge from generous hearts aligned with God’s priorities rather than our own. Scripture guides us to proportional giving – that is, a percentage from every pay period, with a 10% tithe as the baseline goal.
And so, if you have not yet had the opportunity to become a part of the great stuff happening in and around Manchester, please do so. There are commitment cards available in the office, or you can make your pledge online – https://manchesterumc.org/look-up/.
The potential for what this congregation can be is sky high, more than any one of us can imagine! Realizing that potential means looking up to God’s horizon and going beyond our own limited expectations, living into the future that God has in store for us. So what do you say? Let’s do this, church!
