“And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” – Colossians 3:17

Grace, gratitude, and generosity
Through God's grace, each of us has been blessed with a finite set of resources, but we have infinite choices for how to manage those resources. When thinking about God's grace in your life, consider all you have to be grateful for. Give thought to how you might express that gratitude through generosity in return. The church needs you - your prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness - to fulfill its ministries. How can you take your stewardship of God's graces to the next level? For creative ideas on how you can give back, contact the Georgia United Methodist Foundation at 770-449-6726, 877-220-5664 or or visit
