Annual Giving Campaign

Stewardship Campaign 2017

Harvest season is a time of celebration.  We feel joy about the bounty with which God has blessed us, but the joy isn’t really about our possessions.  Joy comes from gratitude and generosity.  We know joy as we say “thank you” for the good gifts we receive, and we know joy as we use our blessings to bless others.  Giving enacts our deep human need to reach out beyond ourselves, build community, and share from our bounty.  In our tradition, our spiritual ancestors Abraham and Jacob were overwhelmed by all that God had given them, so they offered the Lord 10 percent of their blessings, setting the tithe as our call even to this day (Genesis 14:14-20; 28:13-22).

This year, our annual stewardship initiative is focusing on the biblical concept of giving our “first fruits,” along with Abraham and Jacob – that is, giving to God first from our harvests and then making our household budgets from what remains.  Over the next five weeks (Oct. 9 through Nov. 13), we’ll share a season of gratitude and giving, and we need you to make it complete.
