Stewardship is giving back to God- We are called to be stewards of the gifts that God has given us. The fall is a time to recommit ourselves to responding to God’s gifts by making a financial pledge to the work of the church for 2020. This is an important pledge season, since in the new year we will be welcoming a new pastor. In the coming weeks you will hear from church members who have committed themselves to the challenge of stewardship. Our Commitment Sunday is October 27. On that day we will all be challenged to make our pledge to the work of the church. Be watching for more information about this important time in the coming days.
