Giving of our time, talent, and treasure is an act of Worship. It is a response of generosity that recognizes how God has first been generous with us, and enables us to be generous with the world.
We believe the local church is one of God’s great vessels of hope for the world. Through the local church, the gospel is proclaimed, community is formed, individuals grow and the kingdom is embodied and sent out into the world.
To that end, every year we look at what it will cost us in the coming year to live as the particular local church God has called us to be. The staff, working with the members of the Budget and Stewardship Committee, have carefully projected our budget for the coming year. In support of this budget, we as a church body make pledges to help ensure our financial commitments, particularly to our many mission partners around the globe.
On November 4, we’ll come together as a church to offer our pledged financial commitments to the Lord, offering him a portion of what he has so generously given to us. In this act, we are entrusting this church to him, and asking him to use our gifts for his great purposes.
At mealtime Boaz said to her, “Come over here. Have some bread and dip it in the wine vinegar.” When she sat down with the harvesters, he offered her some roasted grain. She ate all she wanted and had some left over. As she got up to glean, Boaz gave orders to his men, “Let her gather among the sheaves and don’t reprimand her. Even pull out some stalks for her from the bundles and leave them for her to pick up, and don’t rebuke her.”
