Stewardship 2019 – Growing in Generosity
“…do good…be rich in good works, generous and ready to share” 1 Timothy 6:18-19 (The Message)
This time last year we were considering opening a quality affordable preschool. Now our doors are open and our classrooms are filled with learning and laughter.
This time last year we were considering a new and deepened relationship with Family Promise. So far in 2018 over 40 volunteers have welcomed our guests with warmth and love.
This time last year we were in the process of upgrading our boiler system while converting from oil to gas. This fall we will continue our energy efficient upgrades, focusing on lighting in and around the building, allowing us to be better stewards of both the environment and our resources.
This fall as a church we committed together to “Growing Together in God’s Grace”. Our vision plan outlines our core values and names our strategic priorities for mission and ministry in the years ahead. There is good and faithful work for all of us to engage as we seek to love and serve God together.
To do that work well our operating budget is increasing in 2019. Our pledged giving goal is $268,000. Take a look at our Narrative Budget which outlines how our resources will be used for ministry impact in the coming year.
Grateful recipients of God’s grace, let us now continue to “do good,…be rich in good works, generous and ready to share.”
