When persons become members of Dido UMC, they make a promise to support the church with their prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
We promise to pray for the church, its staff, its ministries, and kingdom growth.
We promise to be present for worship in the congregation unless sick, out of town, or working.
We promise to offer our gifts to support the ministry of our congregation and denomination through our financial gifts. We encourage households to reach the goals of tithing (10%) of the household income as a response to what God has given us. Beyond the tithe, households support special needs through sacrificial second mile gifts.
We promise to serve the mission and ministry of our church by giving of our time and talents to one or more ministry areas each year.
We promise to witness to others by sharing our faith stories and inviting people to a relationship with the risen Christ.
We promise to grow in our walk of faith by practicing the spiritual disciplines of prayer, worship, Bible Study, Christian fellowship, Christian action, the sacraments, and fasting.
