This year, we're committing to living well through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
Each year, our church dedicates some time in the fall to focus on reminding ourselves of why we’re in ministry, how our ministry impacts the lives of those around us, and how we can continue to fulfill our mission of making disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world. We call this “Stewardship”. Each year, our annual ministry plan is created based on the commitments (aka pledges) of our church family. With these commitments, we’re able to plan for the following year’s ministry with a list of individuals ready to serve at The Harbor, children’s events, worship services, and in a large number of ways. We’re also able to financial dedicate funds to ministry areas based on the commitments received during the stewardship season. When you commit to praying, serving, attending, inviting, giving, and witnessing with your church, you’re fulfilling your commitment to Christ and the United Methodist Church.
Our goal for the 2021 commitment season is for everyone to find a place to serve and grow in their relationship with God. And this year’s stewardship theme is “Living Well”. In John 4:14b, Jesus says, “The water I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.” Our prayer is that the focus of this sermon series on Biblical wells will create in you a desire to become an even greater part of the life and ministry of our church.
Every pledge of your prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness allows us greater opportunities to make disciples of Jesus Christ for the transformation of the world.

Hopefully, you have received a letter in the mail recently from Matt and Bridget St. Amant, the Co-Chairs of the Stewardship Committee, updating you on what we’ve been doing this year, and letting you know what to expect in the coming weeks as it relates to the stewardship season at FUMC Dothan. If you didn’t receive that letter, you can now view it here.
