John Wesley, the founder of the United Methodist movement, 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.
Today, we United Methodists join others to help all of God's children in places near and far and seek to bring transformation and hope through the ministries of our church. whenever and wherever we can. Just as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes when the crowd grew hungry, we believe that God calls us to be the heart, spirit and hands of God's outreaching love.
The life of this church is undergirded by thousands of members whose faithful response to God's blessing empowers us to share the mission and ministry we believe God has called us to fulfill.
