You’re used to hearing about giving in church. Especially lately with the great need left behind by hurricane Harvey. But when was the last time in church that you talked about earning or saving? Is it unchristian to earn money? Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families?
John Wesley didn’t think so. Wesley, the Christian evangelist and founder of the Methodist movement, gave a remarkable sermon called “The Use of Money.” In it, he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.
For four Sundays, beginning on October 22, our church will experience an exciting new stewardship program, Earn. Save. Give.: Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, developed by popular author and pastor James A. Harnish. The program centers around a book and DVD, in which Harnish describes Wesley’s surprising advice and introduces us each week to faithful Christians who, like all of us, struggle with money.
Sunday Evenings, 4:00 - 5:30pm, October 22- November 12 room 407, Taylor Building. This is an opportunity for you to grow and learn about church giving and how it fits in with your own budgeting practice. The Small Group follows the preaching series that Pastor Tracey is leading throughout the Stewardship Season.
