Stewardship

 

 

Dear Cory,
 
This year’s giving emphasis is based on Lamentation 3:21-24 and what Jesus taught concerning money. The scripture says, “The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, God’s mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.”
 
Jesus spoke many times concerning the faithful use of the resources God gives to us. It is to be noted that Jesus spoke about money more frequently than any other subject except the kingdom of God. He gave an unusual amount of time and energy to the money question. Perhaps you will recall one of the occasions form Mark 12:41, in the moving story about the “widow’s mite,” where it teaches about sacrificial giving.
 
The general categories of the  congregation expense ministry budget are:
·        Church Programs
·        Trustees
·        Church Payroll
·        Church Operations
·        Conference Apportionments
 
May God bless you richly as you partner with Cory United Methodist Church.
 
 
Yours in Christ,
 
James B. Roberson, Pastor
