October 4: Money Wise.
As we celebrate World Communion Sunday, we also kick-off our Stewardship season. We will explore how Jesus’ story of the dishonest manager in Luke 16:1-9 reveals the importance of God-centered wisdom as we make decisions about how to manage our money.
October 11: Earn All You Can.
How do we navigate earning money in a way that deepens our Christian discipleship? We ponder the first of John Wesley’s three points about money through the lens of Jesus’ story of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30.
October 18: Save All You Can.
In a culture that glorifies immediate gratification and spending, how do we instead save money in a way so that it can be used to further God’s kingdom? We look for inspiration about the importance of saving as a spiritual practice from the story of Joseph and the famine in Egypt in Genesis 41:14-36.
October 25: Give All You Can.
We will celebrate God’s invitation to give all we can by remembering the story in 1 Kings 17:8-16 of the widow who used the last of her food to feed Elijah in the midst of a famine. In her giving she lived out her faith and both she and Elijah witnessed and were transformed by God’s work. The pledge cards will be received as part of worship.
