When you think of Christian stewardship, often the first impulse is to focus on a church’s need for funding. However, this November, through our annual stewardship campaign, Leesburg United Methodist Church will be asking you to think about how concentrating on your need as a follower of Christ to give for your own spiritual growth and health, as well as the health of the community.
Using Reverend Tom Berlin’s book, Defying Gravity, as a guide, together, we will expand and deepen our biblical understanding of Christian stewardship while discovering how to live abundant and healthy lives. Throughout the month, members of our congregation will share their own stories about how LUMC is ministering to its community of believers and the community at large. Financial giving is an important part of discipleship, and learning more about it can help you grow in faith while discerning your own ability to make a financial commitment to LUMC.
The stewardship campaign culminates on Sunday, November 21, Consecration Sunday. Dr. David McAllister-Wilson will be delivering the sermon at both the Arise and Chapel worship. Together, we will be making our 2022 financial commitments as an act of worship in the sanctuary. In between the services, we will celebrate with a special brunch during Fellowship and Ministry hour at 10 am.
