New Sermon Series “Generosity” and G.I.F.T.S.
Beginning October 1st, Pastor Kim will begin a new sermon series on Generosity focusing on the spiritual gits and discipline of giving.
Also, the Deacons are very excited to announce that they will be kicking off the MSPC Stewardship Campaign G.I.F.T.S. on October 1st and wrapping up on Sunday, October 30th, 2022! They will be sharing exciting information and stories about our church family and community. Some of you have asked, “what exactly is stewardship and what is my role?” Stewardship goes beyond the church budget or building project and connects everything we do with what God is doing in the world. Stewardship is a way of life. It is one of the primary ways that we live out our identity in Christ. We are called to be faithful stewards in all that God is calling us to do. It is being open to the opportunities and challenges that God places in our lives and serving with faith and joy. Stewardship is a spiritual practice that allows us to live out the belief that all we have and all that we are, belongs to God. Stewardship is our gifts of time, relationship, worship, thanksgiving, prayer, service, and material possessions. It is a way of living that includes giving. Stewardship includes you.
