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.
