Festival of Faith Celebration Sunday
Our annual stewardship campaign culminates with our Festival of Faith Celebration observed at both our 8:30am and 10:45am worship services. The celebration continues with a luncheon in the Christian Life Center.
Tithing is a privilege for those who love the Lord.
A brief history of Lord’s Acre Day
The Lord’s Acre program of giving originated years ago in rural churches throughout the nation, during an era when most people relied on farming for their livelihood. Church members would pledge their income from an acre of land, an animal, or a portion of their crop through an offering that was made during the Thanksgiving season.
The Lord’s Acre observance has been a tradition in the Madison United Methodist Church since 1961 and has become a vital component of the church’s stewardship program. All of the Lord’s Acre funds have been used to help retire the indebtedness on the church’s building programs and property acquisitions.
