Stewardship 2019

Prayerful Living – Joyful Giving

2019 Stewardship Appeal



Dear Partners in the Gospel,


With a Stewardship theme of “Prayerful Living/Joyful Giving,” and the passion for the Gospel that Messiah radiates, we believe that we can increase our financial giving by $60,000 in 2019. While our goal is lofty, it is our love for Christ and His Church that will enable us to meet, and perhaps, exceed this number.


The Church, in recent years, has reclaimed Stewardship as being the way we manage our entire lives, not just our financial commitment to the Church. Messiah’s stewardship includes new ministries like Stephen Ministry, Financial Peace University, small group gatherings, using innovative technology to bring guest theologians into our midst for adult instruction, the calling of a new, full-time pastor, and setting the vision for Messiah into the future! These ministries happen as the Holy Spirit prompts leaders and those willing to support funding for these ministries. We are in this together!


If you were at the congregational meeting on January 20th, you heard about how God is working in this congregation, and how we need your support to reach our goals. Prayerfully consider and then come joyfully to worship, with other Disciples Engaged in Mission, on Commitment Sunday March 2nd and 3rd. At worship you will have the opportunity to present your Statement of Intent to the Lord. Our emphasis is more than a Stewardship campaign, it is a way of life, and the results are in direct proportion to us all adopting Prayerful Living and Joyful Giving!


With you in Christ,

The Stewardship Committee
