Stewardship 2018

Renew, Recommit, Rejoice!

Our stewardship theme for 2018 is Renew, Recommit, Rejoice!  The Stewardship Committee would like to thank you for your contributions in helping our community of faith know and grow in Christ.   As we embark on our stewardship season, we ask you to reflect on the gifts you share in helping us spread God’s love within our community and beyond.  What gifts and passions has God planted within you?  What needs has God placed on your heart to see?  We hope you’ll pray through these questions as we all ask together, “What gifts can we each bring to what God is doing through Shady Grove?”

We can each make a difference by supporting our church with our gifts, our time, and our finances.  Our goal this year is to inspire even more individuals and families in our congregation to make a pledge towards our operating fund in 2018. We are also providing a tool for you use to pledge to share your gifts and passions with Shady Grove in the coming year. Imagine what that will help us to do as a congregation to spread the Glory of God! 
Our fiscal year for 2018 will run from April 1, 2018 to December 31, 2018, which is a 9 month period. We will revert back to a fiscal year that matches the calendar year in 2019. 

Stewardship Sunday is February 11.  Please mark your calendar to join the Shady Grove community of faith as we bring our commitments for fiscal year 2018 to the altar of God. We will have special music, testimonials and treats at each service as we continue to discuss “Outside My Own Little World.” We look forward to seeing you there.
