The goal of the stewardship ministry is to help God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of time, talents, and finances that God has entrusted to them.

The Fall Giving Program will give people of Grace a biblical overview of giving and specifically speak to the financial giving of people to the Church.

Our theme this year will be “Giving by Grace, Growing in Joy” based on 2 Corinthians 9:7:  “Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. “

Beginning on October 19 & 20, we will begin a five-week program in prayer and education to give a broad perspective in giving to the Church. Our weekly themes will feature:

  • Week 1: Gratitude
  • Week 2: Prayer
  • Week 3: Faith
  • Week 4: God’s Dream for Grace
  • Week 5: Celebration & Commitment

You will hear inspirational messages from members. You will be provided a weekly guide featuring the theme, facts and information, and more importantly a devotion to help you reflect and pray.

You will hear about Grace’s ministry and our dreams for the future. There will be articles, blog posts, activities, and worship.

You will be asked to reflect on what kind of giver you currently are. You will be asked to consider pledging. You will be asked to consider tithing as a practice of discipleship.

You will have access and receive all the information in many a varied ways and formats you need to make a commitment .

May God move you during this time of reflection and action to fulfill God’s will for us.
