Giving at Franklin First UMC

The stewardship of our finances is a tremendous—and often overlooked—area of our lives where we can faithfully proclaim the gospel. Giving strengthens our devotion to Christ and frees us to live open-handedly with the gifts God gives us. We trust in Him and His provision instead of our perceived self-sufficiency. As people of faith, we give faithfully and generously.

At Franklin First UMC we understand the importance of moving toward a healthy connection between our finances and our faith. At its core, biblical wisdom on the use of money is centered on helping us, as God’s people, order our financial decisions around our faith in God so we can live well in every area of our lives.
