What defines your life? Is it wealth? Belongings? Faith? Many of us live with a scarcity mentality, worried that we must gather and hoard as much as possible, saving for some imagined “rainy day.” Others go to the opposite extreme, focusing on self-gratification. But the Bible promises both God’s blessings and joy for those who choose to live another way. During today’s service (video below), we will begin to consider your estimate of giving for the coming year. This week, you will be receiving an Estimate of Giving Commitment Card in the mail. On a practical level, we ask our members to turn in estimate of giving commitment cards each year so that our Finance Committee is able to set an accurate ministry budget for the coming year. This allows us to make the most of every dollar given to the church. On a personal level, the commitment card is an opportunity for you to spend time in prayer and reflection, considering what offering you will make to God through our church in the coming year. Please be watching for the mailing; then fill out the card and bring it with you to worship next Sunday.
