Stewardship Fall 2019
Dear Friends in Christ,
Do you consider yourself a disciple of Jesus? Do you consider yourself a steward? Being a disciple and steward are two very important facets of our journey of faith as God’s people in Christ. These two elements of our faith journey help us connect the dots of everyday life and what it means to be followers of Christ as we live daily in the midst of God’s grace in Christ.
Over the next three months, we will be involved with a ministry initiative entitled “Growing as Disciples and Stewards.” We will explore together the faith/discipleship practices of pray, study, worship. With this initiative, we will celebrate our ministry together as disciples of Jesus and explore ways we can, as individuals, grow in our understanding and practice as disciples and stewards.
Our Kick Off Weekend for “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” was September 14-15, 2019. We began our three month emphasis with the faith/discipleship practice of PRAY. Through sermons, Bible Studies, and activities, we will explore what it means to be growing disciples and stewards, connecting the dots between faith, daily life, and our ministry as a congregation.
“Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Study
An important component of our conversations of what it means to be a growing disciple and steward, will be Bible Studies each month highlighting the monthly faith/discipleship practice focus. You are invited to be a part of these studies and conversations of faith and discipleship. Our “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Studies will be in the sanctuary prior to the beginning of each worship service. Following are scheduled dates and times.
Growing as Disciples and Stewards
Worship is a practice that is imperative in the life of a growing disciple and steward. If we understand discipleship and stewardship as how one lives their life amidst God’s rich grace in Christ, of living in and living out God’s gift of grace, worship is the response of delight and joy for God’s giftedness in Christ.
In worship, we gather with disciples to give thanks and praise to God for the gift of God’s abundant love in Christ. In worship, we gather with disciples to be nurtured by the word of God. In worship, we gather with disciples around the table where we receive God’s meal of grace. In worship, we are gathered with disciples to be equipped for ministry and then sent out into the world to live in and live out God’s grace in Christ.
For the disciple and steward, worship is not an optional part of one’s faith journey. Rather, worship is the prime venue in life to sing our praises and celebrate God’s presence in our lives.
What does worship mean to you?

Plan to be on hand in worship and join a “Growing as Disciples and Stewards” Bible Study. How exciting it will be, as together, we grow as disciples of Jesus and stewards of God’s rich gift of grace in our Lord Christ.
