Biblical Stewardship, Our Duty and Our Delight

 NEW!  We will be offering Biblical Stewardship, Our Duty and Our Delight twice a week, beginning on Sunday, September 16th at 10:10 am, or Wednesday, September 19th at 11:00 am. 
The Sunday morning class will be led by a member from the Stewardship team, and the Wednesday morning class will be led by the Pastors. This class will meet in room 16 - 17 and last for six weeks.
Stewardship means “belonging to God” -- all that we are and all that we have comes from God. We are grateful to God for it all, and responsible to God for how we use it. There is a connection between stewardship and spirituality: generous giving as a spiritual discipline helps us to grow in Christ.

“Duty and delight” are both motivating factors for giving— doing what we ought to do as responsible church members, and making cheerful sacrifi ces out of love for God.

The overarching theme of this course is, “This is good news!” The biblical message of financial stewardship is:
• promising and encouraging;
• not (usually) guilt-inducing;
• a way of life;
• for many of us, it just may be the way to a better life.

This brand-new course features seven video sessions on DVD, and comprehensive group and individual study materials.

• Session 1: Belonging to God
• Session 2: What is a Steward
• Session 3: Treasures and Hearts
• Session 4: Motives for Giving
• Session 5: Duty and Delight
• Session 6: Cheerful Sacrifices
