2017 Board members
Board of Stewardship works to promote the principle of Christian stewardship, the practice of our purposed and proportionate giving of time, abilities, and material possessions. This is based on the Biblical tenet that all we have is a trust from God, to be used for the benefit of all in grateful response to Christ’s redeeming love.
The Board of Stewardship emphasizes opportunities and encourages congregation members to use their God-given talents, time, and treasures to build up His Church. We respond out of love, grateful for what God did for us through His Son. One way to think of Stewardship is: Evangelism brings people to the church, and Stewardship provides opportunities for involvement.
The main activity our board is known for is October’s Stewardship Month.
Another goal for this year is to increase a program for members to be “sponsors” for new members. The sponsors will help new members feel more welcome and to act as an information resource. We have 6 sponsor families now, and seek more, especially so we can better match ages with new members. Please prayerfully consider being a sponsor and drop a note to Frances, our church’s secretary. We’re looking forward to many new members to sponsor.
We’re excited about other goals for this year. We are establishing Family Nights. Activities will involve the entire family, perhaps accompanied with ice cream sundaes, and so on. We’d like to establish more small groups among members – examples might be dinner groups, bowling groups, volleyball, and golfing. These groups would be encouraged to invite friends to help them get to know more congregation members.
Pastor emphasizes stewardship of time, talents, and treasures at least once every three months to help us better understand and lives as faithful stewards. We are here to help you in any way to be good stewards of the gifts God has given you. Financial Peace University is an example of equipping people to be good financial stewards. Another avenue is the congregation’s endowment fund. Consider Lord of Life in your estate planning. Please ask us if you have any questions.
We maintain a quarterly activities booklet on the kiosk near the entrance – please pick one up. We will also maintain a list of ongoing projects that members may wish to support.
