Info graphic of 2023 ministries

During the 2023 stewardship campaign we focused on how God takes the gifts we give and multiplies them. God multiplies our generosity, our faith, our service, our prayers, our hope.
If you haven’t yet, prayerfully consider why you give your time, talent and treasure and why do you give it to First United Methodist Church – Brighton & Whitmore Lake? Where have you seen God multiply those gifts? You’re also invited to worship (online or in person) and grow in faith together (consider joining a study or small group).
With this invitation, please know your 2024 Estimate of Giving is simply an estimate of what you might give next year. By completing and submitting your Estimate of Giving, it allows the church to create a Ministry Plan for the upcoming year in alignment with projected financial resources.
Thank you for your faithful work, church! And thank you for prayerfully considering how God is calling you to support the continued ministry of First UMC.
