“New Name, Same Spirit” / 2024 Stewardship Campaign
As we wrapped up our Stewardship reflections this past Sunday with an outstanding message from Spencer Best about Service, it was an outstanding reminder of the power of our church’s depth and breadth of stewardship activity.
Our 2023-24 Stewardship Campaign - “New Name, Same Spirit” – is a profound reminder that while our church’s name has changed, our spirit, commitment, and core tenets have not. Throughout the month, we heard messages from longtime church members, youth members, and other talented and spiritually gifted people who value Prayers, Presence, Witness, Service, and Gifts.
If you are one of many who have already made their 2024 pledge, THANK YOU! Your gift helps our church plan and execute our 2024 ministries.
If you have not yet completed your 2024 pledge, we encourage you to reflect and prayerfully consider your commitment to FMC Marble Falls. To paraphrase 2 Corinthians 9:6-7, “Each one must give as they decide in their hearts, not reluctantly or under obligation because God loves a cheerful giver.”
Your commitment will not only shape the financial planning process, but it will also help fund the ministry programs across all age groups for 2024. Please continue to pray for the future of our church as we seek God’s direction. With your commitment, FMC Marble Falls can continue to Lead With Love For Christ.

What is Stewardship?
Christian Stewardship refers to the responsibility that Christians have in maintaining and using wisely the gifts that God has given us. God calls us to be good stewards of ALL we are given – creation, relationships, our bodies, our talents, money and other material gifts of all sorts.
Stewardship is more than just giving money to the church, the Bible says disciples of Jesus Christ should give back from their resources, which include not only treasure, but time and talents.
We, as United Methodists, vow to be faithful with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness—all part of holistic stewardship.
Why do we give?
"Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to make all grace about to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." - 2 Corinthians 9:8
"We want people to give because generosity is part of being a complete disciple of Jesus Christ. It's part of our spiritual growth to experience the joy that comes from generosity."
- Rev. Ken Sloane, Director of Stewardship for the General Board of Discipleship.
