Our Stewardship Team is responsible for promoting expression of Christian Faith in the daily lives of the congregation and promoting the use of funds, time, and talents for the good of the congregation and the community.
Dave stated that “even though our income had not changed, we had more than enough to do everything we needed to do and most of what we wanted to do. There was nothing we lacked”.
My husband and I have had similar experiences when we decided to take the leap and trust in God. Three verses have been chose for our Stewardship Campaign; the one that means the most to me is verse 7: Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. In my opinion, if one gives more to receive more, they may have missed the point. God blesses us when we give because we want to give and trust that he will provide. It is not easy to increase ones pledge, but as our faith and trust in God grows, I think we become “cheerful givers” and isn’t that what God wants us to be?
The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 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. As it is written, “He scatters abroad, he gives to the poor; his righteousness endures forever.”
– II Corinthians 9:6-9
