What does Giving mean at LeRoy First UMC?

WHY WE GIVE

We give in joyful response to God’s love for us and in grateful recognition that everything we have comes from God. We give so that others may also experience God’s love through the work of the church.

HOW MUCH WE GIVE

We give not out of obligation, but as an act of worship. Our giving is an expression of our confidence in God’s promise to take care of our every need. We will never out-give our God. So, we strive to practice the spiritual discipline of giving by moving along a continuum: first time giver — occasional giver — intentional giver — tither — extravagant giver. No matter where we fall on the continuum, God wants us to trust him completely and give joyfully without fear.

HOW OFTEN WE GIVE

We give regularly and intentionally to support God’s work through the Church. Click here to learn about more ways to give.
