Growing in God's Grace: Stewardship Campaign

This Sunday, we begin our stewardship campaign, Growing in God's Grace. It is a time when we turn our focus to the coming year as we work to support the ministries of our church. It is a time for celebrating God's grace and the many ways it allows us to grow both individually and as a congregation. The question we are asking each one of you to consider is "What is God calling me to give as I grow spiritually?" It is a personal question and one that requires much prayer and thoughtful consideration. 

Consecration Sunday, a holy time of commitment of our gifts and service in response to God's grace, will be held on October 13, as we respond to God's call and prepare our pledge cards. After we have made our commitments, we will gather in the gym for a Celebration Meal at 10:30 and 12:15 p.m. Whether you choose to make a financial pledge or not, all are invited to celebrate God's grace. You should have received a reservation card in the mail inviting you to join us for those Celebration Meals. The complimentary catered meal is a way for our congregation to celebrate God's abundant grace and the future of our ministries here in East Tennessee and around the world. Please bring your reservation card to church this Sunday, September 29. You may also return your card to the church office or e-mail reservations@churchstreetumc.org. It is important that you let us know you will be joining in the Celebration Meal.

In the weeks to come, take time to prayerfully consider the question, "What is God calling me to give as I grow spiritually?" Together we can answer this call and continue to grow in God's grace.
