WHAT IS TITHING?

Giving is one of the most powerful ways of growing our faith. The Bible is unambiguous in setting out God’s expectation for those who follow him: it is the tithe (that is, setting aside the first 10% of our resources for God’s work). Those at Peace who follow the discipline of the tithe will tell you how richly blessed they are by this practice (ask them!). For many, this level of giving seems like an impossible challenge (only 8% of believers actually tithe). It can be a difficult leap of faith to take all at once, but if we are serious about our spiritual growth, there are some simple principles we can embrace:
  • BE INTENTIONAL: Take it seriously. Pray for guidance. Talk about it with family and spiritual friends. (Fill out an EFT form!)
  • GIVE UNTIL IT FEELS GOOD: Giving, as described by Jesus, means that we feel it—that we intentionally make God a priority.
  • GIVE CHEERFULLY: We are called to give with a willing heart. Make your pledge and take pride and joy in the ministries of our church and knowing that you play a significant part in making them possible.
Whatever your level of giving, accept the challenge to step up a level in faith [if you have pledged 3% of your resources in 2016, ask God to grow your faith to a 4% level]. If each member and friend of Peace made that simple commitment, 2017 would be a time of explosive ministry growth and possibility.

 
PARTNER WITH PEACE

Thank you for your faithful stewardship of the resources God has entrusted to you in support of the mission and ministry of Peace United Methodist Church. Because of your gratitude, generosity and giving we are able to accomplish great things together that no single one of us could by ourselves. As we approach the end of the year, it’s time for all of us prayerfully to consider what God is calling us to give in 20167 to support the vital ministry of our church, and to renew or begin our commitment to our ministry vision. It is a community worth supporting with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness. We welcome all people, and we believe in bringing the light of Christ to everyone in our community and beyond to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

WHY GIVING MATTERS

Jesus speaks clearly about our relationship with money: “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Our expenditures of time and money are a window to our priorities. He was also clear that a generous life is the true path to joy and contentment. Putting first the kingdom of God pays eternal dividends. Giving to Peace Church has a real impact in the lives of children, youth, families and individuals every day.

WHAT IS EFT?

With Electronic Funds Transfer, one easy step guarantees that the church will receive your gifts on a regular basis, even if you are out of town or forget one week. If you choose this option, please fill out an EFT enrollment form found in the church office or on the Peace website.
WHY A PLEDGE CARD?

This year it is our hope that each member and friend of Peace Church will complete and submit an Estimate of Giving Card (and our hope that all regular visitors will do so as well). There are two reasons to complete the card:

IT IS A SACRED ACT OF WORSHIP as holy and significant as worship on any Sunday. It is an act of thanksgiving, an acknowledgement of God’s blessing, a tangible expression of faith, and a fulfillment of the vows that each of us made when we chose to become members of this congregation.

IT IS A PRACTICAL ACT OF RESPONSIBLE STEWARDSHIP that, combined with the gifts of all the people of Peace, allows us to do together what we could not do alone and is a strong vote of confidence in our ministry staff and volunteers.
GOD IS GOOD, ALL THE TIME

2016 has been a time of great blessing. We have greeted new members and friends, expanded our outreach into the surrounding community, and seen exciting growth in our youth and children’s ministry.

We’ve improved our spiritual growth offerings, bringing the spiritually hungry more deeply into God’s Word. Through the “Sustaining Our Mission” capital campaign we have dramatically improved our campus through technology and “bricks and mortar” to welcome new generations of disciples to join us on our faith journey. Our creative teams continue to lead us in worship that is relevant and inspiring. The Spirit of God is mightily at work in us and through us, and lives have been changed.

Your faithful answer to God’s call makes all this possible. Your prayers and labor carry forward the work of God’s kingdom. Your giving moves mountains. Thank you!

Now is the time to prayerfully consider our commitment to God’s work and renew our pledges of prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness. These are the promises that will determine the trajectory of 2017 at Peace. Thank you for all you do as part of our family of faith.
