From our beginnings, we believed in being a connected people who share resources in order to do what God has called us to do in Canada and beyond. By our working – and giving – together, we are able to accomplish far more than we could ever do apart.
At the 1996 General Conference, it was unanimously agreed that all of us would collectively support the Free Methodist family in Canada through our CORE Giving and Giving Streams. This is our covenant together. Our giving together is how we care for each other, raise up new leaders, grow together, become effective disciples and what enables us to accept responsibility for our community.
It is a matter of faith together… practicing it and modelling generosity as a church to our church and how we support and mission together – we are all stronger and do more together when we all fully participate with our gifts, CORE giving and prayer.
Our model of generosity is based on the Biblical tithe – each local church covenanted together to contribute 10% of their monthly Operating Receipts towards our collective ‘CORE Giving’ – our leadership ministries that support the development of healthy churches across Canada and beyond.
Our ability to effectively support each other depends on all of us giving together. We invite you to dream with us. To minister with us. To support each other as we accept responsibility for our communities.
Thank you for investing your gifts and resources together in building for the Kingdom of God here on earth. Your generosity to your local church and our collective CORE and Giving Streams giving is what enables us to ministry together as laid out in this ministry budget.
