Living out what happens when we center our lives in God.

SHANDON MEMBERS, AS UNITED METHODISTS, BELIEVE EACH OF US IS CALLED TO SHARE GOD'S LOVE BY PARTICIPATING IN THE MINISTRY OF JESUS CHRIST. John Wesley, founder of the Methodist Church, saw our work in the simplest terms: “Do all the good you can, in all the places you can, to all the people you can.” We follow in Wesley’s footsteps by being good stewards.

A biblical understanding of “steward” begins with the affirmation that all of creation belongs to God. All that we have — time, talents, treasures, health, wealth, environment, etc. — is given to us by God to use and care for responsibly. Stewardship is living out what happens when we center our lives in God.

Perhaps another word for stewardship is love — God’s love working upon and through us. It would be wonderful if we could personally reach out and share God’s love with everyone but we know that’s impossible. So we gather regularly at church and through Shandon’s ministries we can reachout together. Through our Prayers, Presence, Gifts, Service and Witness, each person truly makes a difference.

SHARE YOUR PRAYERS
Prayer brings us close to God so that through that relationship we might increasingly reflect God’s love in our lives. Try several of these prayer methods to find those that help you best speak and listen to God.

SHARE YOUR PRESENCE
Your presence through worship, learning and fellowship are centering places for the church’s dynamic community.

SHARE YOUR GIFTS
Tithing and other proportional giving are spiritual disciplines that help us put God first in our lives. Throughout scripture, we are reminded of the importance of giving back a portion of what God has so generously provided.

SHARE YOUR SERVICE OF TALENT AND TIME
Everyone has special God-given talents. Real ministry takes place when a person uses their special gifts to meet a need. At Shandon, you can find a place to share no matter your level of skill, time availability or spiritual development.

SHARE IN WITNESS
As United Methodists and members of the body of Christ, we are all called to extend God’s love to others and share our faith.
