During October and November the session is asking you to reflect on your giving to the work of the church and to think ahead for 2017. We are asking you to prayerfully consider your gifts of time, talent and property. On November 20, you will be invited to bring a pledge card for 2017 to worship to dedicate to God. That card will include not only a line for financial offering but an opportunity to promise time, talent and prayer.
At the same time our Pillars and committees are exploring our current spending patterns and making plans for the future. We are identifying hopes and dreams, as well as needs and necessities. We seek to honor God’s gifts to us and to use those gifts in appropriate ways. We also hope to expand some of our activities and programs to better serve God from our corner of Gardner. During October you will be hearing some of those
reflections during worship as various groups will offer “Seconds for Stewardship.” The aim is transparency in sharing how your leadership is planning for your church, and perhaps inspiration for ways that you might be able to support the mission and ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Gardner.
