On Sunday, October 22, we will begin a church wide study and worship series called Treasure: A Stewardship Program on Faith and Giving.  The study will be based on Jesus’ words, “Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Matthew 6:21).

 

Over a period of four weeks, there will be small group opportunities to look at the many ways our treasure (time, talent, skills and financial gifts) affects our hearts.  We will consider how the challenges of personal finance, careers, lifestyle, time constraints and family commitments affect our relationships with people and with God.   We will see how giving and committing helps to determine the way we feel and act.

 

If you have stress related to money, conflicting priorities, and the demands of a busy life, but feel God may be calling you to do more with your resources, this will be a helpful study. Pastor Mic will offer a series of sermons to help us examine where the treasure of the church is.

 

At the end of the four weeks, we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of giving to Heritage United Methodist Church for 2018.  We will receive commitment cards in the mail, and cards will also be available on Sunday mornings.  Cards can be returned at any time. However, we encourage everyone to do so on or before CommitmentSunday on November 19.

 

We look forward to an exciting month committing our treasure.
