Earn Save Give Kick Off April 17th
Luncheon Following Worship 4/17
You’re probably used to hearing people in church talk about giving. But when was the last time in church that you talked about earning or saving? Is it unchristian to earn money? Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families?
John Wesley didn’t think so. Wesley, the Christian evangelist and founder of the Methodist movement, gave a remarkable sermon called “The Use of Money.” In it, he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.
During the months of April and May, our church will experience an exciting new stewardship program, Earn. Save. Give.: Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, developed by popular author and pastor James A. Harnish. The program centers around a book and DVD, in which Harnish describes Wesley’s surprising advice and introduces us each week to faithful Christians who, like all of us, struggle with money.
We will begin this exciting stewardship program with a catered luncheon after Sunday service on April 17th.During the luncheon, you will receive a packet containing information about the program and a commitment card. The four weeks following the luncheon will include sermons and class studies of the material.In the final week, on Commitment Sunday, you’ll be invited to fill out the card and indicate your commitment to the church over the next year.
Since the luncheon is catered, we will have a sign-up sheet to determine attendance for the caterer. You can also notify either Kathy Kaylor (419)607-0161 or Adam Pfeiffer (419(559-3978.
Please sign up and/or let us know that you are planning on attending for the caterer.
