Refocus: Committing to Generosity

Refocus: Committing to Generosity

    During our family meeting last month, as a church, we were challenged with how we can can respond to everything written in the prospectus. Our response is to pray, give, and raise the bar. I attached the Prospectus for your viewing: 

On Sunday, November 19th, we will have our Commitment Sunday. We will be taking time in our service to worship through committing in our giving and placing our commitment cards in the commitment box. 

 

As your family continues to consider your monthly commitment, remember that it will take every family of all situations and financial statuses. There is a part that we all share to giving generously.  The widow who gave her two copper coins understood that she needed to give generously. 

And he sat down opposite the treasury and watched the people putting money into the offering box. Many rich people put in large sums. And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, which make a penny. And he called his disciples to him and said to them, “Truly, I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than all those who are contributing to the offering box. For they all contributed out of their abundance, but she out of her poverty has put in everything she had, all she had to live on.
— Mark 12:41-44

    It will take all of us. Every family unit matters, from those who give $20 a month to those who give $750 a month. 

 

    This Sunday each family unit who has a record of giving this year will receive their year-to-date Giving statement. As you prepare to consider your commitment for 2018 and beyond, take a look at your giving statement and pray through how God may be challenging you to give generously. 

There are five types of givers that define and can aid in how you can consider to grow in your generosity.

Which one defines you and how will your family commit to generosity and advancing the Gospel?

Refocus: Growing in Generosity

Refocus: Growing in Generosity

    November is here and another year is almost in the books. Thanksgiving and Christmas are just around the corner. November is a month that is often expressed with thankfulness, gratitude, and generosity.  

Generosity is a lifestyle in which we share all that we have, are, and ever will become as a demonstration of God’s love and a response to God’s grace.
— Contagious Generosity, Willard & Sheppard

 

At Grace, we believe that in order to grow as a follower of Christ, there are five steps that you need to take in your walk with Him. You need to: 

  • Worship Consistently
  • Join a Community Group
  • Serve faithfully
  • Give Generously
  • Speak the Gospel

     Many of these steps come naturally to us. The last area that we usually grow in as followers is our ability to give generously.  Our pocketbooks tend to be the hardest things to surrender over to God. We want the control of our income and possessions, but forget that they belong to God and He is the one who blessed us with them. Our lack of generosity  will keep us from experiencing the blessings of God that He has for us to share in.  As we begin this month of focusing on Giving Generously, would you consider how you can grow in your generosity?

Which one defines you and how can you grow in your generosity and advance the Kingdom of God?

 

Questions to Ponder:

  • Do you have a generous heart? Are you a generous person?
  • Do you make generous donations to your church?
  • Do you show generosity to poor and needy people?
  • Do you think God is pleased with your level of giving?
  • Do you need to make any changes in how you approach giving?

    Approximately 70% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck, regardless of their income. This means that “broke” has become the new normal in our nation. At the end of the month, many individuals simply have nothing left because of debt and expenses. If this is you, we’ve got good news. You are not alone. (Click to read more)
