Why We Give
John Wesley urged others to “Earn all you can and save all you can so that you can give all you can.” He modeled modest living and sacrificial giving. Wesley made sure those early classes of “methodists” took weekly offerings to help others in need.
Today, United Methodists join others to “do good whenever and wherever we can.” Just as Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes when the crowd grew hungry – we use our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness to be the hands and feet of God. Life grows here through the joy of generosity.
We believe stewardship and generosity is a way of life that recognizes that everything we have is God’s and we are blessed to be a blessing to our community and to the world. Our gifts are a tangible demonstrations of our love for God and our neighbors.
2020 Mission and Ministry
Each year, in October we ask the people of Broadway to complete an Estimate of Giving card and return it to the church. This allows our Finance Team to plan the funding for the next year. They provide a narrative budget that gives you a picture of how each ministry is funded.
If you were unable to attend, please download an “Estimate of Giving” card, complete the information and return it to the church. 11 S 1st St, Council Bluffs IA 51503
