Sisters and brothers,
Our Stewardship Committee has had a busy year! They have been the driving and organizing force behind our work with Family Promise.
Now, as we turn to the fall, they will again be leading us to think about our financial gifts and about the gratitude we feel to God. This year the Stewardship Committee has decided to focus on the ways that God has helped us to grow in all of our shared ministries.
The theme for this year is Equipped for Every Good Work! It comes from one of Paul's letters to his friend, Timothy: "All scripture is inspired by God ... so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work." In other words, the scriptures - the promises we hear each and every Sunday - are a tool God uses to prepare us to make a difference in the world. A church that did not have active ministries would not really be a church at all. Our stewardship program this fall celebrates all the ways God is equipping us.
Beginning on Sunday, September 23rd, we will hear each week about a ministry that is springing up and growing here at Advent. Different groups and committees will share stories of service and purpose.
On October 14th we are blessed to welcome Pastor Tom Scornavacchi from Common Ground to preach on the intersection of recovery ministries and a generous response to God.
Finally, Commitment Sunday is October 23rd. Please plan to be there for worship, fellowship, food, and a celebration of God's generosity.
