STEWARDSHIP JOURNEY

By Rev. Nanci Hicks in East Cobb United Methodist Church 4 months ago | 274 views Link: https://goo.gl/NtHzTr

Our Stewardship Journey is underway.  You will receive a letter later this week with further information and a pledge card to help determine your financial commitment to the ministry of the church.  Please continue to be in prayer about how you will commit to the ministry of East Cobb UMC through 2018. We are praying for renewal and commitment to the Word of God in our fellowship and in our service as we seek to be Stewards of God’s good gifts.  

Thank you to Pat Holcomb, Arlene Poquette, Bill Mayberry, our youth, and Trenton Dockery for leading worship October 15! East Cobb UMC is blessed with many gifted and dedicated people who care for our membership and for building the Kingdom of God.

Please find below, thoughts for this week as you prayerfully consider how God is calling you to respond to offering your gifts, your service, your prayers, your presence, and your witness.

Generous living is not just about giving money, or even just about giving.  It has to do with the whole of who we are and how we care for our neighbors (see Mark 12:28-31).  Each of us brings our heart, mind, soul, and strength.  The Old Testament word for “heart” is literally the leaning or thrust of our lives.  We might call it our lifestyle or nonverbal witness. In other words, it is how we steward 100 percent of our lives, not just the “religious” sector or the percentage we give away.

So how do we lead a life of stewardship? By nurturing generous living in our personal lives and in our life together as part of our congregation and Christ’s interconnected, connectional church.

Nurturing generous living in every aspect of our life together before God — now that’s great stewardship!
