“…do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share…take hold of the life that really is life.” – I Timothy 6
By the time you receive this newsletter, you will have seen at worship that our Live Generously stewardship emphasis has begun.
It was in the power of the Holy Spirit that Paul encouraged his brothers and sisters in Christ at the end of his letter to be generous and ready to share…to take hold of the life that really is life. And we know who the Author of this blessed life is – the Holy One who is most generous. The God who created you and me has given us all that we have and all that we are.
In the coming weeks we will discuss more what it means for you and me to Live Generously. We will even consider how the Spirit works to strengthen our faith and indeed change us, form us more into our Lord’s beloved people as we do so.
During our Sunday morning learning time from September 30 – October 14, join Pastors Adam and Joe in the COC. We will consider God’s generosity toward us, how we respond and the work of the Spirit in our hearts in every season.
Sunday, October 21 is our Consecration Day. In the coming weeks we will receive a letter containing an Estimate of Giving card and a Time/Talent summary. We encourage you after prayerful thought to complete these items, as we all look to continue our ministries in our Lord in 2019. Bring them to worship on October 21, where we will present them to God, offer prayers of thanksgiving and seek God’s blessing.
What a blessing that we may turn aside and ponder aloud, and in our hearts, the abundant blessings of God!
