St. Peter’s Stewardship Campaign

The congregation is encouraged to join the first of three St. Peter's stewardship group discussions taking place Sunday, October 22nd immediately following worship in the lower auditorium. Each discussion will be centered on scripture and focus on our faithful service and generosity as individuals and a congregation. We will discuss important questions such as: Why do we give? How do we give? and How are the gifts that we give used? Please join the discussion. 

The scriptural focus for the first discussion will be Jeremiah 23:1-6,

1Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! Says the LORD. 2Therefore thus says the LORD, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who shepherd my people: It is you who have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. So I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the LORD. 3Then I myself will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the lands where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. 4I will raise up shepherds over them who will shepherd them, and they shall not fear any longer, or be dismayed, nor shall any be missing, says the LORD. 5The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will raise up for David a righteous Branch, and he shall reign as king and deal wisely, and shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 6In his days Judah will be saved and Israel will live in safety. And this is the name by which he will be called: “The LORD is our righteousness.”

This year’s extended stewardship campaign will loosely follow the synodwide emphasis, “That Christ might come to have first place in everything” from Colossians 1:18. Who is Christ in your life? What place does he take in the many priorities we set before ourselves? How we answer that as followers of Jesus has a huge impact on how we will live out a life of commitment to the Lord. Paul addresses the same questions in his letters to the Colossians. He writes: He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together. He is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that he might come to have first place in everything. (Colossians 1:15-18)

Three congregational group discussions will take place over the next three weeks, each with a different scriptural focus on our faithful service and generosity. These discussions are meant to challenge our giving patterns and provide the opportunity for straight talk regarding the needs among individuals, our church and our community. Along with these discussions, a series of traditional temple talks from congregation members will be presented about how our offerings are used and shared. Commitment Sunday will occur non November 12th when congregation members are asked to prayerfully consider their financial commitment to the church and submit a pledge card.
