Stewardship Pledge for 2022
Pledge here for the 2022 Stewardship Campaign
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
I am grateful that God is with us in the midst of these turbulent times. We have all experienced the stresses and upheavals of the last couple of years, but God has seen us through these events. We know that no matter how bad the storm, He will never leave us or forsake us.
I am so grateful for where this congregation is at right now. And I am incredibly thankful to the volunteers and staff who make these ministries happen. The time and effort it takes them is truly a labor of love.
I am humbled by the kindness of this congregation. Our giving this year exceeded last year. Because of your generosity, we can share the love of Jesus with each family getting their child baptized and every new person that joins us for a Bible study.
As we look towards the 2022 Stewardship Campaign on Commitment Sunday, November 21st, I would like you to prayerfully consider the card we have enclosed with this letter. Christian stewardship is worship, part of our grateful response to the many ways God has blessed us. Therefore, the practical outcome of stewardship is that Christians volunteer their time, use their skills, and provide financial offerings to the church as an act of worship. We hope you see this as a way to invest in the ministry of this congregation.
Secondly, we want to encourage you to think about how you can use your time and skills to honor God. The lifeblood of this congregation is the people of God doing God’s work. With that in mind, I would like to encourage you in 2022 to try something new. What ministry has God been nudging you towards? God seeks to stretch all of us in new ways, and exploring a new ministry is a great opportunity to grow in Him and in faith. This would be a great year to experience that ministry and see if it is a way for you to bless others. On the backside of the enclosed card, be sure to indicate the areas of ministry you would like to learn more about. We would love to talk with you!
Once again, I would like to thank you for your past and future support of Shepherd of the Hills. I am so excited about what God is doing in and through this congregation, and I look forward to how we will continue to grow in Him.
See you in worship,
‘Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.’
2 Corinthians 9:7
