Year-Round Stewardship on a Congregational Level

Every Monday at 7 pm ET / 6 pm CT, January 23-February 6 (3 sessions)
Instructor: Karen Sylvester of Zion, Marinette
Registration deadline: January 21

“Stewardship is a wonderful word that describes how a follower of Jesus Christ faithfully travels through this life. Contained in the one word are three important biblical teachings. First, God is the creator and owner of all that is. Second, God loves us so much that God has entrusted some of what God owns into each person’s care. And third, how God’s people manage what God entrusts into their care both flows from their relationship with God and impacts that relationship.” (Quoting from Embracing Stewardship by Charles R. Lane and Grace Duddy Pomroy.)

When stewardship is mentioned in the typical congregational setting the average congregational member automatically assumes money is going to be the topic, and it’s not just money in general, but typically their money. At Zion Lutheran – Marinette that is what stewardship was about until 2016. For the next three weeks, this class will cover Zion’s transformation into year-round stewardship and how stewardship evolved into so much more than just money. We’ll share with you what worked, what didn’t work, and what we continue to strive for.
