BUDGET REVIEW—On Sunday, October 20 at 9:00 AM we will have our annual informal discussion about the budget. This event will start our stewardship emphasis.
STEWARDSHIP KICKOFF—Transform. Engage. Serve. We are transformed by God, who gives us guidance and life. We turn to him to transform us, to revive us, and to seek His presence and call in our lives. Once we are transformed by God then we engage with others. We engage by connecting with our neighbors, co-workers, friends, and with those we pass by on a daily basis. We spread the word of God by engaging our faith and love towards others in our midst. Once we are connected with others we are then summoned to go out and serve. This message of God is not for us to keep to ourselves. It is meant to be shared in giving back to our church, community, and world. We will hear three presentations from three different people starting on October 20th of how God is moving in their lives and how they became called to action. This stewardship message is central to our mission statement, “Sharing Christ’s love through Service.” How can you give back to our church and to our community using your gifts and talents? Please keep this in your hearts and minds as we discuss what this looks like as children of God.
