A Church on the GROW!

Stewardship

 
 
  
Celebrating God’s Love and Provision
"Giving helps us become what God wants us to be.  Giving is not merely about the church's need for money but about the Christian's need to grow in generosity.  Generosity is a fruit of the Spirit, a sign of our spiritual growth.  God uses our giving to change the world for God's purposes, and God uses our giving to reconfigure our interior lives and to change us!" - Excerpt from "Practicing Extravagant Generosity: Daily Readings on the Grace of Giving"
 
As a congregation we are focusing on deepening our understanding and practice of faith through our special church-wide emphasis Extravagant Generosity:  The Heart of Giving.  Beginning October 5th and concluding October 26th, we will explore and observe matters of our hearts.
