Mail:

You can always send your offering to the church at

620 E. Turkeyfoot Lake Rd. Akron, OH 44319

Your giving is an act of worship and makes possible the ministry of changing lives, transforming communities and renewing the church.  In addition to offerings given through the offering plate,

there are two ways to give:

Stewardship & Generosity

Stewardship – to serve as one who manages anothers 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.
