Worship service – October 17, 2021 – “Why We Give to the Church”

In last week’s conversation about “living generously,” we heard how generosity makes us feel good, and benefits the community. Since this conversation is in a church setting, the next logical question is “why give to the church?” There are so many good organizations that benefit the community, the environment, and others around the world – why choose the church? We’ll hear personal stories from church members about why they give specifically to MHUMC.

Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.

Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 21:1-4 NRSV.  Jesus tells the story of the widow’s offering, contrasting our assumptions about “poverty” and “abundance.”

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC.  Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service. I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
