It’s Stewardship Season! Get Excited!!!
Okay, maybe the words ‘stewardship’ and ‘season’ fail to inspire. Or maybe you’re like countless others who don’t know what stewardship season means. Truth be told, I think the church has lost sight of what it means. It’s not just about fundraising— though to make things happen here, we do need money! Really, though, stewardship is about changing lives. It’s about giving thanks. It’s about taking what we’ve been given and using it to make a difference. Which, oddly enough, shouldn’t be limited to a season anyway! It’s an all-the-time thing. That said, this month, be thinking about what you can do— what you can give— to make a difference in our community in 2020. With these hands, Christ can and will change lives!
