February 17th-March 3rd
God gives us many good and wonderful gifts. As faithful followers of Jesus, we are to care well for all that is given to us, and also to give back to God. What gifts are we to be caring well for? How do we use our gifts to honor and glorify God? And what does all of this have to do with being a good steward? This three- week series will help us to think about all that we have and how we can use it to love and serve God and others.
February 17th- Week 1: Stewardship: Time - Communion
Scripture: 2 Thessalonians 3:6-10, Ephesians 5:15-17
Time is a precious gift. There seems to never be enough of it. We are generally pretty good at wasting it. But imagine for a moment what your life could be like if you were intentional about your time. How quick are you to spend time in God’s Word? How often and how much time do you waste on social media, watching TV or on some kind of electronic device? As followers of Jesus, we should be seeking to love and serve God through how we spend our time.
February 24th- Week 2: Stewardship: Finances/Resources – Kids Sing
Scripture: Proverbs 3:9-10, 2 Corinthians 9:6-8
Money. How we spend it and how we give it are a reflection of our faith. We are to care well for what has been given to us. Often, we operate under the assumption that what we have we earned, and we can do whatever we like. However, if we are truly seeking to be followers of Jesus, then we need to readjust our thinking. What we have is not ours, it all belongs to God. What do you spend your money on? Are you honoring God with how you use your resources? What one financial decision will you commit to as you work towards being a good steward?
March 3rd- Week 4: Stewardship: Gifts/Abilities – Kiersten Smeal preaching
Scripture: Exodus 18:13-26, Romans 12:6-8
Whether or not you believe this to be true, God has given you a gift or ability that can be used to serve others and further God’s Kingdom. We are not all good at the same things. That was intentional. As a community, when each of us uses our gifts, God is glorified and the body feels more complete. More whole. With the gifts and abilities that we have, we are to be good stewards. Blessing others and thanking God. What gifts and skills do you have? How can you be a good steward of those gifts?
