We are called as God's stewards to manage that which belongs to God. While God has graciously entrusted us with the care, development, and enjoyment of everything He owns; as His stewards, we are responsible for managing His holdings well and according to His desires and purposes.
It is through our giving back to God that we show our obedience regarding the administration of everything God has placed under our control. Stewardship is the commitment of one's self and possessions to God's service, to further His Kingdom.
Opportunties to give and to be good stewards of God's divine provisions at Gordon Memorial include giving of tithes, offerings, donations, and participating in the UMCMarket and Kroger Community Rewards program.
