A Holistic Action Plan for You and Your Church

Stewardship is about more than money. As United Methodists, we vow to be faithful with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness— all as part of holistic stewardship.
CFUMC’s Operating Budget is built based on financial pledges to the Annual Stewardship Campaign. Committed giving and pledges support all of the excellent programs and vital ministries here at Chamblee First.  The mission and ministry of our church rely on our holistic stewardship.
This year, as you plan your annual pledge for 2023, we ask that you think Beyond Stewardship.  As you complete this survey, consider both your Financial and your Physical commitments for the year ahead and how those may advance your Healthy Faith and our Healthy Church.  Please respond by Nov. 20.

SERVICE

Beyond Stewardship reminds us that giving of our resources includes not only our money but also our time and talents. Volunteers are essential to conducting the missions of Chamblee first. By connecting the dots between the CFUMC goals & needs and the Members’ skills & service, we cultivate a collaborative spirit and culture of generosity. And to experience the joy that comes from generosity is part of our spiritual growth.

WITNESS

Holistic stewardship challenges us to look beyond our private commitments (like Gifts) and those commitments we make among the people with whom we worship (like Prayers and Presence). We are also called to live the gospel publicly, in ways that can be seen by others. We can live out this vow in big ways and small. That’s what Witness is all about. “So here’s what I want you to do, God helping you: Take your everyday, ordinary life—your sleeping, eating, going-to-work, and walking-around life—and place it before God as an offering.” Romans 12:1 (MSG)
If "other" was selected above, please use this space to elaborate. Or enter any comments/suggestions about ways you may Witness.

PRAYERS

"Lord, teach us to pray," the disciples request of Jesus (Luke 11:1 CEB) Prayer is a form of personal communication with God. There is no one-size-fits-all technique and, as part of our Healthy Faith, each of us needs to find our unique style. Learning to pray is like learning to ride a bicycle -- what we learn from a book or hear in a sermon is not enough. Proficiency comes through practice.

PRESENCE

Discipleship is a lifelong journey and Christian education comes in many forms. Whether through Worship, Sunday School classes, Bible studies, or small groups, CFUMC strives to offer a relevant curriculum, whether age-specific, group-specific, topical, or niche. We welcome your ideas for expanding discipleship across our diverse congregation.
