Living Each Day as a Steward!

Consecration Sunday will be October 27 when we will have the opportunity to thank God for the many blessings He has provided. On Sunday, October 13, you will have the opportunity to pick up your Stewardship package. Living each day as a steward should be our goal and I hope that you will take a little time to read and reflect upon the Bible verses listed below concerning Stewardship. By studying these passages you can gain a little understanding on how the Holy Spirit, working through The Word, transforms us to be more like our Chief Steward, Jesus, who willingly poured out his life in giving and serving, ultimately sacrificing his very life for our eternal lives. Just as Jesus faithfully served his Father by serving us, we are to use our lives and gifts in faithful service to him by serving others. “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace” (1 Peter 4:10).

As your Stewardship Chairperson, I pray that each of you will take advantage of these opportunities to grow in the grace and knowledge of your Lord that you will be strengthened in faith both for eternity and for a fruitful life here on earth.

The Scripture passages I have chosen in addition to the one above are as follows: Malachi 3:8-12 Genesis 2:15 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
John 3:27 James 1:17 Matthew 23:23

Rich Knox, Stewardship Chairperson 


October is Pastor Appreciation month. It is time to emphasize prayer and gratitude for the work of our pastor in our church. 



Due November 17, 2019

1. Use new items.
2. Each box stands alone, so don’t divide items between two boxes. Include some “fun” in every box.
3. Remove all wrappings from your items.

4. A toothbrush may be put in a zip lock bag.

5. No candy or tooth paste because there is a used by date on them.
6. Include your check for $9.00 for each box you pack. You may also go on line and pay by credit card where you will get a tracking number strip to print out and attach to the shoebox. You can track the number until it reaches the country of its destination.

7. If you do multiple boxes just write one check and put in one of the boxes.

8. Place the boy or girl strip at either end of the top of the box. Later these boxes will be taped around the middle for shipment so don’t put the label in the middle.
