Generous Resolutions for the New Year 2020

“You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.’ And God will generously provide all you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others.” 2 Corinthians 9:7-8

A mindset of generosity is formed by one generous decision after another.

This year, consider finding a new charity to support, upping your annual gifts, or thinking of a new way you can support your church. Leaving a legacy of generosity begins with a daily choice to be generous with your time, talents, gifts, service, and witness.

Generous New Year’s Resolutions for 2020:

  • Create a bequest in your will to benefit your church or a charity
  • Give a portion of your IRA to your church or favorite ministry to reach your yearly required minimum distribution (RMD)
  • Create an endowment fund that will continually support your church or a ministry
  • Invest in the Foundation’s Development Fund to earn interest and help churches and other United Methodist ministries receive loans
