Dear Friends in Christ,
On Sunday, January 7th (the Sunday that we celebrated Epiphany) , each of us had the opportunity to receive a star word (if you weren’t able to be in worship and would like to know more or choose a star word please let me know). In choosing our star words we were asked to remember that as the wise men traveled to offer their own gifts to the newborn Christ Child they were responding to the gift that had first been given to them. We were asked to remember God’s generosity in our own lives. And we were asked to use these words to help us to be more aware of God’s activity in our lives as well as the world around us.
This spring, the Stewardship for All Seasons team will ask you to consider not only the awareness of God’s generosity in our lives, but also the ways we may respond to that generosity through our offerings. The Stewardship for All Seasons team has three goals:
You are being invited to live out of God’s abundance to participate in what God is already doing in our community and around the world. As you consider your giving for the next year please consider the following questions.
Peace and Blessings,
Pastor Joyce Partyka Staib
