The theme of stewardship season this year is First Things First, and we will focus our attention on God’s call to all believers to offer up their best to the Lord.
The choicest of the first fruits of your ground you shall bring into the house of the Lord your God” – Exodus 23:19, NRSV
“Honor the Lord with your substance and with the first fruits of all your produce; then your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will be bursting with wine.” – Proverbs 3:9-10, NRSV
On Sunday, November 11, we will have a celebration service at church as we offer up our financial pledges for 2019.
You can make your 2019 Stewardship Pledge by returning the pledge card you received in the mail, picking up a pledge card at church, or by using the online form below.
Faith is God’s gift to us.
With Faith, we trust God with ourselves and our resources.
“Giving has always been a mark of Christian commitment and discipleship. The ways in which a believer uses God’s gifts of material goods, personal abilities, and time should reflect a faithful response to God’s self-giving in Jesus Christ and Christ’s call to minister to and share with others in the world. Tithing is a primary expression of the Christian discipline of stewardship.”
“Those who follow the discipline of Christian stewardship will find themselves called to lives of simplicity, generosity, honesty, hospitality, compassion, receptivity, and concern for the earth and God’s creatures.”
“The Christian life is an offering of one’s self to God. In worship the people are presented with the costly self offering of Jesus Christ, are claimed and set free by him, and are led to respond by offering to him their lives, their particular gifts and abilities, and their material goods.”
