This year, our Budget Campaign is focusing on why you should give to the
church, and what the Bible says about Provision, Giving, Tithing, and
Contentment. On November 18th we will ask that you make a Financial Commitment
to support our ministries in the coming year (2019).
When we think about stewardship, we often think about money. But stewardship means “taking care of that which is entrusted to us.” This involves more than money. This life and everything that we possess does not belong to us but has been given to us by God, and we are accountable to Him. This is His Provision, what stewardship is all about.
God wants to see you Blessed: He is pleased when you are happy enjoying His
provision. He pleased when you, in turn, provide for your family and have more
than enough to be a blessing to others. (3 John 1:2)
God’s provision is limitless. Just as Jesus fed the 5000, there is nothing
he can’t do to provide for you. (John 6: 11-13)
God blesses you because He loves you and gives you the privilege of being an
extension of His love to your community and beyond. His financial provision is
for a divine purpose. Don’t use people and love money: use money to love
people! Have an abundant heart, look for those in need and bless (help) them.
Shine your light for the glory of God.
Once we recognize that He owns everything that we have, it also brings with
it a responsibility to be wise stewards of what God has given to us.
