Morgan Hill United Methodist Church




As 2017 comes to a close and we reflect back on the year, we at Morgan Hill United Methodist Church have much to be grateful for. We started the year with a $44,000 deficit, but made a conscious decision to live in a state of faith driven abundance, rather than dwell in a place of scarcity. As a result, through Godís grace, we have continued our mission outreach, refurbished our sanctuary, updated our parsonage, while working our way toward a balanced budget.

Our 2018 Stewardship Campaign and Pledge Drive is titled, "Strive to Tithe." Strive is an aspirational notion that acknowledges both hope and action. We hope to do more, but have to act more, in order to be more. John Wesley made this point very eloquently when he wrote, "Do all the good you can. By all the means you can. In all the ways you can. In all the places you can. At all the times you can. To all the people you can. As long as ever you can." There is an inherent message of doing what you can today, but striving to do more tomorrow.

Our "Strive to Tithe" message is similar Ė do what you can today, but strive to do more tomorrow. For example, if you pledged 5% of your income last year, strive to pledge 6% this year, and strive for 7% next year or whatever your personal giving goal might be. Wesley encouraged Methodists to "Earn all you can, save all you can, and give all you can." With that, we ask that you prayerfully consider pledging again this year, in an amount that you discern best through your conscious contact with God. Your continued support will ensure our spiritual community continues to thrive throughout the year, as we have done since 1893, and strive to do for generations to come.

Goal: $110,000
