Dear Watershed Family,
In the month of October, Pastor Lance will be preaching a sermon series around the theme of “Flourish.” This series is designed to outline how when we and the church give of our resources, not only does our community flourish from that outpouring, but the church itself flourishes as well as ourselves in ways we never would have imagined. Tied to this series, the church will also be conducting a stewardship drive which will help us achieve financial targets needed to continue on our path to realizing our 15/1500 vision.
In preparation for this series and drive, we invite you to an evening of worship, prayer, and preparation on September 24th at 5:00 PM at the church. Not only will we give thanks for the many gifts God has given us individually and as a church, but this will also help outline some of the basic information around the stewardship drive itself. This drive is different from a capital campaign, which is more of a “one-time” giving increase for a particular goal (land, buildings) that has a finite time period. Instead we will be looking at how together we can take steps to make permanent changes in our giving habits and patterns.
We recognize everyone is at a different place in their financial and giving lives. During the month of October we will look into all of the great works being done through your gifting today, and how the future will look if everyone takes another step in giving, whatever size that step may be. As an outwardly focused church, your gifts were able to help turn a church into a shelter for those in need in our community. Your giving also impacts the lives of the children, youth, and adults inside our church through various programs, while helping individuals in need through assistance programs. Imagine the increasing impacts we will have in the lives of others, and in the lives of people within the church, as we grow in financial stewardship together.
We look forward to seeing everyone on the 24th at 5:00 PM for a great event.
