Summer Series 2019: Stewardship

This summer we’ll be looking at several practical ways you can orient your life around God by using the concept of stewardship. We’ll explore what stewardship is and how to practice it for eight weeks beginning on July 7th.

The concept is simple: everything we have comes from God, whether our time, our money, our energy, our skills or our resources. We don’t own these things, we simply manage (or steward) them on his behalf. God’s word gives rich insights into the effective management of our time, our resources, our families, even the plentiful grace that God has given.
