Stewardship

    Home » Give » Stewardship We are richly blessed! God has entrusted many gifts to each of us, both financially and spiritually. We are called to be good stewards of these gifts by using them to further the Kingdom of God.

    Use these tools to further your own personal stewardship, find out more about the ministries that First Church supports financially, and challenge yourself to give sacrificially to God's work.

    UMCmarket Giving
    Do you shop online at Macy's, Best Buy, Travelocity, Walgreen's, Barnes & Noble? The United Methodist Church, together with Zebraplace, has made available a micro-donation tool to all members as a secure way to develop new income streams for the church. There are about 500 stores partnered (including those listed above and many, many more!). To take part, all you have to do is either download the browser-app or shop through www.umcmarket.org. Your purchases will automatically generate micro-donations to the church you choose every time you make a purchase. Once you create your account, make sure you join "Grapevine First" in order to direct your donations here!
