I Timothy 6:18: …….do good, be rich in good works, generous and ready to share.
Stewardship is an important part of our spiritual life at First United Methodist Church of Pittsburgh. Stewardship and generosity can be thought of as a thankful response to the generosity of God as well as a means to show generosity as we live out being a stewarding community of faith.
By using our time, talent, and treasure we make it possible to give through Christian Education, Worship and Music, World Mission, Community Outreach and Pastoral Care. Our gifts of presence, service of time and talent and financial support enable us to demonstrate our appreciation for God’s gifts and love.
Our Gifts of Treasure
