Defying Gravity - Stewardship 2018

We all want to be generous, but it can be challenging to break free from the demands of our time and resources. Instead of enjoying the freedom to bless others with the best of our lives, we feel held down and held back by forces that seem beyond our control. But there is good news! Jesus offers us a way to defy gravity and break free from this sense of scarcity.

The key to all of it -- and the key to Christian discipleship -- is generosity. When we follow Jesus, we develop a spirit of generosity that enables us to soar to new heights through God's vision.

You are invited to read the text for the upcoming services of worship and prepare your hearts and minds for a transforming worship experience. 

Download our Stewardship Calendar, and join us in prayer and reflection throughout the month. Follow along on Facebook, and see all of our image prompts here. You can also download a Defying Gravity Stewardship Brochure and Commitment Card to bring to worship on Commitment Sunday. Read a letter from our Stewardship Campaign Co-Chairs Debbie and Russ Nolan.
