Taking the next step

This is a time to

consider your personal

spiritual journey. 

 

You have known places where the grace of God has been in your life.  How is gratitude for that grace reflected in your Christian

giving?  Pray about what God is calling you to do in a planned offering of thanks. These thoughts and prayers will ready you to

respond.

 

On March 4th, we had an opportunity to complete an Estimate of Giving Card in worship and presented it as an act of worship and an expression of faith.  We invite you to join in the joy of making a loving response to our loving God.  As all celebrate in this offering of intentions, know that we hold the content of those intents confidential and sacred.

 

If you were unable to attend worship on Sunday, March 4th, please email communications@faithumc.org and we will mail a letter of encouragement and an Estimate of Giving Card to you or you can download a card and print it HERE to turn in at the church office.

 

Pray that God will grant you wisdom and understanding about your personal decision as you contemplate Taking the Next Step.



“As we learn to trust God more and more, we learn to live

generously”


"as we live generously, we learn to trust god more and more"


Why take the next step?

It is God’s intention that we grow more generous and take bigger steps in our giving as we become more aware of how richly He has blessed us.


It’s about SPIRIT

 

Stewardship is directly linked to discipleship.  How we use our resources is a spiritual issue—not just a financial one.  The quality of that decision is determined by the spiritual condition of your heart.

 

It’s About TRUST

 

As we grow in grace, we learn to depend less on ourselves and more on God: to relinquish attitudes and habits that impede our relationship with God.

 

It’s About JOY


Stewardship is not our way of raising a budget.  It is God’s way of raising disciples.  Discover the joy of growing in your relationship with God as you consider how you can take the next step in your faith journey and live generously.

Missions of Faith

Jesus said the key to abundant living and the way to eternal life was to love God with all we are and to love our neighbors as ourselves.

Our community needs people who love and follow Jesus to take this command to be a good neighbor seriously.  If we each loved our neighbor, the way Jesus invites us to, our community would be a different place.  In fact, the scripture teaches that in such communities, the kingdom of God has come near.  Faith is committed to the building blocks of community; learning our neighborhoods, hearing our neighbors' stories, and sharing food, laughter and life with the people we live around.


Here you will find some of the ways we are going about loving the people we live among and we hope you will join us.

Kairos Prison Ministries - For more than ten years Faith has sent missionaries once a week to a "foreign country" to help stop crime. That "foreign country" is right next to Richmond and unfortunately so is the crime problem.  The "foreign country" is 2 Jester Units Carol Vance- a Christian facility and J-3, a medical facility,  just a few miles from our Church.  Several times a week volunteers from Faith pass through the  gates and into the chapel or another meeting room, to lead inmate-attended classes .  Disciple--the powerful and transforming Bible study program also offered in the free world, Alpha, GED  tutoring, mentoring  and Kairos, a men’s ministry based on the Emmaus concept. Beyond meeting the call to carry the Message even into prisons, this mission opportunity is one that can--and will--have a profound impact on our community. The current missionaries of Prison Disciple agree: it just may be crime prevention at its best with the objective of transforming troubled men into spiritual men.
