The Committee on Stewardship shall interpret the Biblical and theological basis for stewardship consistent with the doctrines of the United Methodist Church informing the membership through educational channels and study materials. This committee works closely with the Finance Committee.
We are currently preparing for a 4 week stewardship campaign beginning in November 2014 which we are calling Treasure.
“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21)
Money affects your heart. Whether you are in plenty or in want, money has a direct connection to your stress level, your anxiety, and the health of your relationships. It is no wonder, then, that Jesus talked about the relationship between our treasure and our hearts.
On Sunday, November 2, we will begin a churchwide study and worship emphasis called Treasure: A Stewardship Program on Faith and Money. The study will be based on Jesus’ words, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).
Over a period of four weeks, we will look at the many ways that our treasure (time, energy, money) affects our hearts. We will consider how financial challenges in our personal lives affect our relationships with people and with God. We will see how giving helps to determine the way we feel and act. If you have stress related to money or feel there may be more that God is calling you to do with your resources, this will be a helpful study.
At the end of the four weeks, we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of giving to our church for the coming year. All of us will receive commitment cards in the mail, and the cards will also be available on Sunday mornings. We can fill out these cards and bring them to worship on Sunday, November 23.
We look forward to an exciting month considering our treasure and God’s treasure.
