Giving more like Jesus . . . That's our prayer and our goal here at Light of Christ.  We seek to give as Jesus gives -- freely, fully, generously, and joyously.  We believe that the Holy Spirit is at work to make us a more and more generous people with our time, talent, and treasure.  In a culture that often worships at the altar of greed we strive to live out a way of life that is centered in Jesus' own generosity.  We seek to give as Jesus gives not only for our own transformation but for the transformation of others.  By our giving we seek to make an eternal difference not only in our own lives but in the lives of others. We have choices. What we focus upon matters. Where we place our attention and energies impacts us and the people around us. Where we're looking affects where we go.

2023 Stewardship: Reflecting with Gratitude

You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, 
which will produce thanksgiving to God through us; for the 
rendering of this ministry not only supplies the needs of the 
saints but also overflows with many thanksgivings to God. 
                                                            II Corinthians 9:11-12

During the fall stewardship campaign we’ll reflect and express gratitude for the gifts and ministries of our common life together at Light of Christ. Why gratitude? Gratitude is the Christian response to recognizing that all good things that happen in our lives are gifts from God, a reminder of how much God loves us and wants us to be signs of God’s love in the world.

During these weeks we’ll:

  • Focus our gratitude on different aspects of worship and membership 
  • Acknowledge members whose participation creates our common experience
  • Build a gratitude chain and initiate a community-based Gratitude Project.
