Weekly Updates

JANUARY 2019 

January's Resolution:
This Stewardship Campaign is designed to communicate giving, sharing, sacrificing, and serving joyfully out of love for God and our neighbors.

 
This week we centereed our thoughts on Jesus Christ by listening to a quote from Bishop Robert Schnase. Words that express the bottom line for our stewardship. Here they are again: We have been the recipients of grace upon grace. We are the heirs, the beneficiaries of those who came before us who were touched by the generosity of Christ enough to give graciously so that we could experience the truth of Christ for ourselves. We owe the same to generations to come. We have worshiped in sanctuaries that we did not build, so to us falls the privilege of building sanctuaries where we shall never worship. 

God has blessed in countless ways. So why would we not wish to respond and be as extravagantly generous as God is toward us? In the Christian faith, we attend to the teaching of the Shema (Deut. 6: 4-5) in the context of the teaching of Jesus. One of the ways we express our love for God is through our love for one another. This is a clear expectation of our faith. Do you find this difficult sometimes? To do this we must focus on the outcome God desires - the desire that we multiply God's love! That, my friends, is true stewardship done God's way! More than money, it involves every aspect of life!

January's Resolution:
This Stewardship Campaign is designed to communicate giving, sharing, sacrificing, and serving joyfully out of love for God and our neighbors.

 
Our spiritual health has much to say for our wellbeing, and even how we feel about things like the Church! It starts with a healthy foundation. The Bible says; Tell people who are rich at this time not to become egotistical and not to place their hope on their finances, which are uncertain. Instead, they need to hope in God, who richly provides everything for your enjoyment. 1 Timothy 6:17 (CEB) 
       Paul's remedy is to put our faith in God. He suggests that we do good things, that we should be rich in good deeds, and that we be generous and willing to share. That is antithetical to the world culture around us. But then, God designed the Christian life to be present to the world, but not of the world. In this way we become those who change the world for the better!

 SEE YA IN CHURCH!
