Imagine Stewardship Campaign

Dear Friends,
Greetings! Before we focus on our ‘Imagine Stewardship Campaign’ for this fall, let us take a moment to think and thank God for life and how he fills our lives full of his grace. We are so blessed each day with the many blessings that God rains down upon us. We have a good and gracious God who opens wide His hand and satisfies the needs of every living creature. We have a God who fills us full of His grace and renews our strength, so that we may mount up with wings of eagles, so that we may run and not be weary, so that we may walk and not faint. We have a God who loves us unconditionally and who will never abandon us. As we think about our great God, all we can say is thank you Lord, for everything!

All that we are and all that we have is a gift from God. On our journey through life we are but stewards of God’s gifts given to us. It is the season of the year to think about stewardship.
  • Our Stewardship theme this year is ….. Imagine! A campaign to further God’s mission through Gloria Dei.

Our Imagine Stewardship Campaign theme verse is: Matthew 5. 13-16      
Jesus says:  13 ‘You are the salt of the earth; but if salt has lost its taste, how can its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything, but is thrown out and trampled underfoot. 14‘You are the light of the world. A city built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15No one after lighting a lamp puts it under the bushel basket, but on the lampstand, and it gives light to all in the house. 16In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.
In our theme verses Jesus names us. Jesus says, “You are  ... the salt of the earth and the light of the world.” In other words, Jesus says that we are preservers of the faith (salt preserves), and we are to pass on the faith (point to the light, Christ). It is our joy to know Christ and to share Christ. Our stewardship campaign is all about the ministry of Christ.

This year we are focusing on three ministry initiatives:
  1. CALL an ordained Pastor to serve with our Congregational Care team.
  2. BUILD a Mission Vision Fund to be used for near future vision and expansion of ministry.
  • Haiti Church and School Partnership
  • Children, Youth and Family Staff Position with Middle School Emphasis
  • Live-Stream Tech Staff
  1.  Natural GROWth of Ministry Budget
