STEWARDSHIP SUNDAY
We encourage each family to pray about ways to be involved in the life of the church. Session feels that God is calling us to be a church family where each person contributes and is involved in the shared life and ministry of the church. We affirm the joy of giving to God’s work in our midst as we trust in His faithful provision to us. As Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 9:7-8, “Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work.” 2011 Stewardship Info.
