Last Sunday concluded our churchwide study and worship emphasis on the Journey to Generosity. Our final week focused on being defined by generosity. We’ve considered the futility and emptiness of accumulating and hoarding possessions and wealth, and we say that God promises blessings and joy to those who choose to live a life of generosity and self-sacrifice.
Over the last week, you should have received a commitment card in the mail. If you didn’t, please send me an email at [email protected] so I can get one to you! On a practical level, we ask our members and people who consider us their church home to turn in a commitment card so that our finance committee is able to plan well for ministry at our church in 2019. On a personal level, the commitment card is an opportunity for you to spend time in prayer and reflection, considering what offering you would make to God through our church in the coming year. Please fill out your card and bring it to worship with you this week, 11/18. If you aren’t in town this week, you can turn in your card at any point after that. If you choose, you can pledge online at tryfaith.org, at the bottom of the home page. I hope you will be able to join us on Sunday as we celebrate and consecrate our gifts to the ministry of our church for the coming year.
Don’t forget: Be the Church Sunday is 11/25. We will meet at 10:30a in the worship center at church, sing a song, watch a video, and then serve together for the remainder of the usual worship time. We are anticipating that most projects will be finished with plenty of time to get to lunch! Sign up at the church this weekend, or email [email protected]!
Your pastor and friend,
