Financial Stewardship

As Christians, we believe that all life is a gift from God, and that everything we have ultimately belongs to God. We give of the financial resources God has given us because God uses them to change the world and to change us. Grateful and generous giving is important to our life of faith in God. Generosity is one of Incarnation’s four core values, shaping our decisions and actions.

Step Up and Share the Gracegreen bag

The Share the Grace fall stewardship campaign began on Sunday, November 11. If you were unable to be in worship, your personalized commitment card will come to you through our Neighborhood Route green bag system which began this week and will run through December 2. A couple weeks ago, you were sent a letter indicating your giving levels for both the operating fund and the capital campaign last year. Please prayerfully consider an increase in your commitment for 2019. Each year, the fall campaign gathers financial support in order that the Incarnation leadership may plan for our work in the following year. Thank you for your participation in preparing for ministry together in 2019. Together we are making an impact both locally and globally by feeding the hungry in heart, body, mind and spirit. Every gift matters. If you have questions, please contact Amy Faymoville.

Please use the following prayer to prepare your heart and mind to make your commitment for 2019.

God of Abundance, we thank you for all that you have given to us. We thank you for the invitation to be in community with others and to use our collective resources to further the work of your Kingdom here on earth. Jesus, each day you invite us to follow you with our whole selves. Help us to place our trust more fully in your hands as we seek to step up and share the grace with others. Holy Spirit, grant us courage to step out in faith through the giving of our financial gifts. Bless these financial gifts that they may be a physical reminder of your grace and is used to feed the hungry in heart, body, mind and spirit. Amen.
