ACCEPT THE CHALLENGE – Our main stewardship emphasis continues as we focus on the many dimensions of our roles as God’s stewards. In recent weeks members have presented ten different underlying principles of stewardship. This week we emphasize the importance of “Living Genuinely” and “Accepting a Challenge.” This year’s campaign culminates with a special coffee hour presentation Sunday, November 11th, and the pledging of our financial commitments to the church for the coming year on November 17-18th. By generously giving of ourselves, we discover joy in Christ. 

 

 

 

 

This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of the Lord’s people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. 13 Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, others will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. 14 And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. 15 Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!   (2 Corinthians 9:12-15)

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

One of the ways Christians respond to Jesus’ incredible love is through generous giving and living. Through our stewardship of what God is doing in our lives, we give thanks by offering monetary support, as well as our time and talents, to grow Christ’s mission and ministry lived out in our congregation and wider church. Our role as God’s stewards is one of many dimensions – grateful, responsible, self-sacrificing, willing, sharing, proportionate, committed, regular, genuine, and challenged. By generously giving of ourselves, we discover joy in Christ.

To help us grow in our faith and commitment to Christ we are participating in a stewardship emphasis during the months of October and November focusing on ten principles of stewardship: (1) Respond gratefully, (2) Obey responsibly, (3) Sacrifice proportionately, (4) Give willingly, (5) Share abundantly, (6) Give proportionately, (7) Commit intentionally, (8) Contribute regularly, (9) Live genuinely and (10) Accept the challenge. Each week, for five weeks beginning October 7th, members of our congregation will share a “mission moment” and share posters on two of the principles. This will be followed by a special, stewardship-focused, coffee hour on Sunday, November 11th.

Finally, on the weekend of November 17/18th we will prayerfully offer our commitments for the next year. Together we hope to share a message of God’s abundance and our commitment to greater service and generosity to Christ and his church. I hope you “Accept the Challenge” and be a part of this opportunity to pray, talk, worship, and give.

Yours in Christ,

Michael Jensen
