2021 Stewardship Season
Continuing on the Pathway to Generosity- Together!
"You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity."
2 Corinthians 9:11
Will you take the next step in faith?
In all that we do in life—from beginning to end —we are on a path. Life can provide detours and distractions along the way, but God is always calling us back to a path that is full of abundant life and great joy.
It is our response to God’s generous invitation into a deeper relationship—no matter where we might be on our path with God—that moves us in the direction of the abundant life and great joy that God offers.
God has shown each of us at Davidson College Presbyterian Church the path of life and invites us to follow.
"Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met." Matthew 6:33, The Message version of the Bible
Will you take the next step in trust?
Christ promises to take care of us while we take care of others. When we step up our giving, we can trust that God will provide for our well-being. God is calling on us to open our hearts and hands—to be responsible stewards of the time, talents, and resources we hold—to help others grow in faith. In doing so, we deepen our own faith, too.
Generosity—the ability to give freely and unselfishly—comes from trusting that we have nothing to lose by doing so. Will you take the next step in trust?
Reflect on where you are on the Giving Path and where you feel called to be.
To help you, a giving chart will be mailed closer to Nov. 21.Use it to:
Set a plan for your giving. Giving without a plan leaves you subject to your emotions. Start with a basic plan.
Pray over spontaneous giving when unique opportunities present themselves.
Move along the Giving Path .
Jesus said, "What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving." Matthew 6:31, the Message version of the Bible.
