As we approach Commitment Sunday on October 28 and the climax of our Fall Stewardship Campaign, I hope that you have given some time to prayerfully reflect on the stewardship of the resources that God has entrusted to you.  Stewardship for Christians is a way of life that recognizes that everything we have is God’s, and we are simply managing those resources while here on earth. Through our stewardship, we are the heart, spirit and hands of God, reaching out in love to share with our world.   
Hopefully you received the second stewardship mailing last week. The mailing included a letter with important information, a step-up chart, and your 2019 Stewardship Commitment Form.  Recognizing that the Lord calls us to use Our Hands to accomplish His Plans we pray that you will commit to honor Christ through the commitment of your time, talent and treasure in an even deeper way in the year to come.   Please complete the Commitment Form and seal it in the envelope and bring it with you to church on Sunday. You may also mail it in to the church office. This year you may also fill out a Commitment Form online by going to our church website.
During the service, together we will present and consecrate our gifts and commitments to the Lord.  This is always a very special and sacred service.
Thank you for allowing God to use your hands to accomplish His plans.  We really appreciate your commitment to our congregation!
