Dragonslayer Stewardship LogoWe kick off our Year Round Stewardship Program with a Ministry Fair on August 31 from 8:00 am to noon.

Each ministry will have a booth show and tell what they do.  Eleven booths and displays are expected.  There will be a representative to talk with folks about the ministry and a sign-up sheet for volunteers.

Flying  dragons and swords will be available for the kids. Food, drinks, games and fun are available for all.

Stewardship is not just defined by annual pledges, but by all the, time, talent and treasure given in the service of our Lord every day.  Stewardship is our thanksgiving to God for all He has given us.

There will be a congregational letter going out each month, from a different parishoner, emphasizing a different aspect of stewardship.

Throughout September there will be a Bible study offered three times a week – same study, different teachers. In November we will mail out time and talent cards as well as pledge card.  The Ingathering will be November 16 and then on November 23, we will have a report – both new time and talent sign-ups as well as the pledge offering for 2015.  A great celebration will follow.

Beginning in January we will have a special event each month focused on stewardship to keep us mindful of needs and thanksgivings throughout the year.

During this time, we are asking the parish to give one hour each Tuesday for prayer and fasting for  God’s blessings and guidance as we move forward.
