The UMF encourages all churches to implement an annual stewardship campaign and to consider New Consecration Sunday Stewardship or a similar program for your stewardship initiative.
Herb Miller’s New Consecration Sunday program:
- Focuses on our NEED to give rather than subscribing to a budget.
- Has proved to be very effective over many years and is easily repeated year after year.
- Is biblically based and thoroughly Wesleyan in emphasis.
You may contact the Foundation for assistance and for a list of trained Guest Leaders, or you can select a Guest Leader on your own. We look forward to working with you in this exciting endeavor as your members discover the joy of giving.
Start today in your planning! Expect a Harvest!
In Faith & Friendship,
