Stewardship

The Stewardship Ministry is about transforming lives by helping individuals develop a relationship with God and learning to give through time, talent and treasure. Stewardship teaches the importance of spending time in service to the church and to speaking the word of God. The ministry works to inspire individuals to use hidden talents to glorify God and support a ministry of choice. In addition, treasure is a significant part of stewardship. It teaches that giving God priority in life by giving back a portion of your (income) helps you discover that there are untold blessings in the act of giving.

 

MINISTRY MEETING SCHEDULE: The 2nd Thursday of each month

The word sacrifice is thrown about at will, but ask yourself, have you really thought about what it means to sacrifice and the ways that you can? We all make sacrifices for work and family, and those are normally big sacrifices that must be made. But we can also make smaller daily sacrifices that can dramatically impact your habits, time and finances.

Here a few sacrifices that can be deployed in your everyday life:

  • Meal Prep: Make a conscious effort to prepare healthy meals. Not only will you develop a healthier diet, you'll save the dollars you spend eating out everyday. 
  • Time Management: Diagnose and plan out your week, cutting out time that's frivolously used surfing social media, watching TV and playing games. Repurpose that time with something enriching.
  • Turn Down the Thermostat by 3 Degrees: Turning down the heat (or the air conditioning) in your home by just 3 degrees will save you 9 percent on your utility bill, according to U.S. News Money.
  • Turn off the Tap: Turning off the water while brushing your teeth or rinsing dishes can save nearly $40 a year per person in the house.
  • Make Your Own Coffee: Instead of stopping by the café every morning, brew your own cup of joe at home and see the savings add up to $1,040 each year, depending on your coffee habit.
  • Slow Down: Slowing down while driving can actually save you some dough every time you fill up the tank. The US Department of Energy notes "each 5 mph you drive over 50 mph is like paying an additional $0.17 per gallon for gas."

Remember that seemingly small sacrifices can stretch a long way. At the end of the month your pockets will thank you and your small changes will become habits.

"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God-this is your true and proper worship" (Romans 12:1)

 

“Then Peter said, Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee; In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.”                                           

Acts 3:6

What a blessing to possess the wealth that is found in the name of Jesus Christ! Healing is in the name. Deliverance is in the name. Salvation is in the name. Restoration is in the name. Rather than put your trust in the riches and wealth of this world, why not trust in something that transcends this worlds faulty economy? Trust God’s spiritual economics. Trusting God and doing things God’s way has immeasurable dividends.

 

Stewardship is about Financial Security. Do you desire to have financial freedom? Are you stressing and worrying about money or the lack thereof?
 
Consider this: Tithing is rightly prioritizing God. When you keep God first, respect and obey his word about money, you will experience the financial freedom and security that only God gives. God is Owner! 
 
Psalm 24: 1 "The earth is the Lord's and everything in it, the world, and all who live it it." There is no risk with him!
 
 
 
Stewardship is about Generosity. It is a biblical command that must be taught and caught!
 
“Give and it shall be given unto you: good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give unto your bosom. For with the same measure that you give, it shall be measured back to you again.” (Luke 6:38)
