*AUMC
Practices Extravagant
Generosity"
"You can give without loving but you
cannot love without giving."Unknown
Thank you for practicing "extravagant generosity!" You
have been blessed and are a blessing to your brothers
and sisters at AUMC, the community and the world!
The AUMC leadership team has set some big financial
goals to respond to what we feel God is calling us to do in
20t4.ln 2014, we anticipate...
o
Over the past few days, I have been going over reports
about AUMC's giving in 2013. I just want to affirm you as
a congregation for being willing to give sacrificially and
extravagantly to what God is doing in and through this
congregation.
.
o
Overall, you gave $ 483,784 to the AUMC during 2013.
This does not include some giving that went directly to
the AUMC Youth, the UMW, Praisathon, and Compassion
Pregnancy.
o
There was $ 366,7tt given to the General Fund of the
church. (The General Fund provides for programming,
building maintenance, and staff salaries.) Your giving has
allowed us to gather for worship and bible studies, make
hospital calls and home visits, bless the Lord and others
with music that lifts the soul, minister to kids and youth
and help them learn to walk in the ways of Jesus.
As
I was looking over our giving, I noticed that of the
$ 41,000 more than $ 14,000 was given beyond the USA.
This included money for drilling a water well in Africa,
funds for missionaries working in Zambia, suppoft for
lanet Lahr Lewis our missionary working in Palestine on
Peace and Justice issues.
This also means more the $ 26,000 was given to local,
state, and national needs. This included you providing
more than $ 10,000 for emergenry assistance to those on
the margins of life. You also gave generously to ministries
like the Faith Health Clinic, Prqect Help, Cahoots, Trine's
Christian Campus House, and the Steuben County Jail
Chaplain.
a
increased General budget that actually
Many connecting to AUMC are catching the vision that all
that we are and have really belongs to the Lord and that
we are blessed to be a blessing. It is great to be one of
the pastors of a church that is practicing extravagant generosity!
Of the total giving figure, you, as a congregation/ gave
over $ 77,000 dollars to "Beyond the Walls" ministries
that are making a difference here at home and around
the world. The $ 77,000 figure includes $ 41,000 given
directly to mission projects and emergency needs and
$ 36,000 given to the Indiana Conference of the United
Methodist Church in the form of a tithe to the Conference.

raising $ 10,000 for the Indiana Conferenceb Africa University Capital Campaign. We have pledged a total of $ 30,000
over the neK three years to the campaign.
(The good news is that we already have $
2,305 of this year's pledge given,)

trip with Pastor Tim Helm and Hanfield

Group to Pennsylvania in July to build a
Habitat Home.
as a part of the FCJ process beginning to
work at sprucing up our Sanctuary and
Educational wing here at the church.
Please be praying that God will provide for all that He
intends that we do over the next year. As God gives you a
"holy nudge" to give, just continue to respond to that
"nudge." God is able to do more than all we ask or think
according to His power at work within us. (see Ephesians
3:20)
I attended the
Wilmore United Methodist Church. The motto of the Wilmore Church was "A small town church with a worldwide impact." I think that I can truthfully say that of
AUMC as well. AUMC is a small town church with a worldwide impact! May we continue to be so more and more!
Years ago, when I was at Asbury College
May God bless you and make you a blessing in 2014!
All for Jesus,
Pastor Tim
