Practice Generosity


"Gain All You Can - Save All You Can - Give All You Can"   --John Wesley

Stewardship is more than just giving money to the church. It is about caring for and managing all that has been given to us by God. Stewardship is a lifestyle that involves making choices in all aspects of our lives to do the best with what we are given. It is a way for us to generously participate in God's work with our time, talents, and assets.  When we are truly generous, we reflect the character of God "who gives generously and doesn't hold back" (James 1:5). Becoming a generous person merely reflects the liberality of God's blessing upon us.

You can learn more about the Connectional Giving Programs sponsored by the United Methodist Church. In addition, the Center for Christian Stewardship provides exceptional information about the joy of generous giving. To learn more about John Wesley's views of stewardship, read the article posted on this website.


 Your Financial Assistance is Needed!

The needs of our Niagara Frontier United Methodist urban churches outweigh the resources available to them. In order to continue these programs and launch new ministry initiatives, Niagara Frontier City Ministries, Inc. needs financial assistance from members in the United Methodist Church communities in order to keep viable ministry programs working.

Would you please help by giving today to support our ministry? We invite you to join our efforts to empower these urban ministries and services by either donating through your church (write NFCM on the memo line of your check) or by sending a check or money order to: NFCM, P.O. Box 792, Getzville, NY 14068.
