Stewardship Campaign


Annual 2020 Stewardship Brochure

Fast Forward. Twelve months from now, you have found meaning by growing in your relationship with Jesus. How did you get here? Who walked with you? What did you invest? At Ankeny First, we find meaning in life growing as we work our Method: Worship God, Connect with others, and Respond in service.

  • Worship is the belief that God is worth it. A great way to express that belief is by attending a church worship service weekly to see and to be grateful for God’s activity each day.
  • Connect is a way of being transformed in small groups as we study the Bible and share our faith, including trying to understand Jesus better and to follow him more closely.
  • Respond is sharing our unique talents, skills, and financial resources for the betterment of our church, the community, and the world at large, all for the glory of God. How rewarding this can be, as we realize that responding is its own reward, with no expectation of repayment!

The future you envision requires small decisions that add up to a meaningful life. How did you get there? Challenge yourself to increase your frequency of worship attendance in 2020. Who walked with you? Commit to connecting in a small group in 2020. What will you invest? Look for new ways to respond in service.
Join us in committing yourself to your goals for worshiping, connecting, and responding. Also prayerfully consider your financial investment in providing for this Method. You may respond by:

  • Print a 2020 Commitment card (download one here) and bring it to any service the weekend of November 22/23, 2019.
  • Return your card to the Uptown church office, Ankeny First UMC, 206 SW Walnut St., Ankeny, IA 50023.

Thank you for your generosity! When 2020 approaches its end, we pray you can look back on a year of growing in your faith, leading to a more meaningful life!

In Christ,
Steve Freeborn, Stewardship Team
