Stewardship Update


Our giving is to God (Rom. 12:1, Phil. 4:17)

Giving is the obedient act of returning to God from what He has provided. Your giving should be directed to God and His work, not to an organization. Therefore, giving is a spiritual decision. 

Our stewardship campaign has officially launched and will conclude with Consecration Sunday, November 26, 2017. You are encouraged to prayerfully seek God's desire not only for your financial commitment to Fairview, but also for the stewardship of your gifts and talents.  Yes, Fairview is in a transition, as we patiently and obediently seek God's plan for a new pastor.  But it is NOT just Fairview that is in waiting.  Ask yourself, what spiritual transition are you undergoing? How does God desire you grow through this transition? What gifts and talents has he entrusted to you? How will you use them to glorify God over this next year?

Opportunities to Know

Stewardship Devotional

Begin with focus and openness to see what God has for you.
God, connect with me here, as I seek you in your Word. 
Read: the selected section of Scripture slowly. Take note of intriguing words and phrases and read them a second time.

"As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever"    1Peter 4:10-11

Reflect: on what strikes you as you read. Think through what God is communicating to you at this point in your life.
Respond: to the passage. Speak to God directly about what's on your mind and heart. Look for ways to live out what you've uncovered.
