The 2019 Stewardship Campaign

We’re going to do something different for Stewardship this year. For six Sundays, we’re going
to marry the spiritual practice of stewardship with six practical acts of stewardship, in support of
six Deacons’ ministries, based on Matthew 25: 34-40 NRSV: When Jesus gathered the
Disciples on Mt. Olive, just before His death, He said that when the Son of Man comes in His
glory, He will say, “Come you who are blessed by My Father … For I was hungry and you gave
Me food, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed
Me, I was naked and you gave Me clothing, I was sick and you took care of Me, I was in prison
and you visited Me ... just as you did it to one of the least of these members of My family, you
did it to Me.”

Our hope is that, as we all prayerfully consider our stewardship pledges for 2019, we can join together as a thankful congregation in six
practical acts of stewardship. Through these practical acts, we can show our thanks and our faith that God provides for us in all circumstances
of our lives, and we can show that we are part of how God provides for others. Please bring the much-needed items listed above to church on
the Sundays indicated. You will be invited to bring them to the front of the Sanctuary.
