A Generous People 

Luke 11:41 “Therefore, give to those in need from the core of who you are and you will be clean all over.” (CEB)
Practicing generosity places us closer to the heart of God. At Bethesda UMC, we believe that if a church exists in a community it should make that community a better place to live. It is through the generosity and support of ordinary people that this church does extraordinary work whether it is supporting children at Garner Elementary or in Kenya, building homes down the street or in Belize, feeding children and families, or supporting the larger mission and ministries of the United Methodist Church.
