Our giving represents an act of worship in which we thank God for our blessings and acknowledge that everything we have is a gift from God. The Bible teaches us to give a tithe or the first ten percent of what we earn to God and God’s work. For some, the giving of the tenth is a goal you are growing toward each year. For others, it is the starting point, and you will give far in excess of this. If you are not yet tithing, consider taking a step toward the tithe this year.
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 to help others in need.
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. Life grows at PEACE Church through the joy of generosity.

“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house…and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.”
- Malachi 3:10
“Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.”
- 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
