    The Joy of Sharing God’s Blessings
    January 28, 2016

    COMMITMENT WEEKEND:  You are asked to prayerfully consider your financial commitment to the church for 2016.  During the offering this weekend, you will be invited to bring forward your commitments along with your weekly offering.  In our commitments, we commit to serving Him and others through the mission and ministries of our church.

     

    THE JOY OF SHARING GOD’S BLESSINGS:  This is the third and final week of our Experiencing the Joy of Generosity stewardship emphasis.   This week’s theme is “The Joy of Sharing God’s Blessings.”  God wants our giving and sharing to be joyful and fulfilling.  How could we not be joyful when the creator of the universe chooses us to be His stewards who care for His creation and His gifts to us?  How could we not want to express our gratitude through our faithful and joyful giving?  Our generosity flows out of our understanding that God has created and redeemed us.  In spite of our sinful ways, He loves us and calls us each by name.  By God’s grace, we can live as forgiven and redeemed people through the blood of Jesus on the Cross.  Today we are making our annual commitment, and, by doing so, we celebrate the blessings of Jesus Christ in our lives through faith in Him.

    THE JOY IN MANAGING GOD’S BLESSINGS: 
    Today is the second week in our stewardship emphasis Experiencing the Joy of Generosity.  Our theme for today is “The Joy in Managing God’s Blessings.”  As God’s stewards, we are to manage faithfully the time, talents, and money that He has entrusted to us.  Through faith, we understand that all that we are and have are gifts by God’s grace in Jesus.  To express our gratitude, we manage our blessings in ways that give our Lord praise and honor.  We hope and pray that these worship services and Bible study opportunities will help you draw closer to God and will help you understand the importance of following God’s plan for managing your blessings.  Please join us next week when we will focus on “The Joy of Sharing God’s Blessings.”
