Over the last few months I have tried to introduce readers of this blog to some of the best stewardship resources from the ELCA. But once in a while a home-brewed resource is just what is needed.
The good folks at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Cedar Falls have developed a Stewardship Program called “The Gift, Practice and Art of Generosity.”
Out of their own generosity the congregation wishes to share their work just in time for a Stewardship Emphasis appropriate for September 21 – October 5. The resource they created has worship helps, Bible studies, and a sample letter. The materials are available on our Synod’s website at http://www.neiasynod.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/2014-Stewardship-Emphasis-3.pdf h
