This year’s stewardship campaign is about Generous Hearts. The scriptures tell of cheerful hearts, hard hearts, joyful hearts, wicked hearts, discerning hearts, aching hearts, renewed hearts, consecrated hearts, worshipping hearts, generous hearts.
The full body of scripture paints the winsome picture of God’s own heart – one that relentlessly pursues those who are lost. Ultimately Christian discipleship is about the shape of our hearts, or perhaps better said, the reshaping of our hearts to become more like the very heart of God.
The hope and prayer of this year’s financial stewardship committee is that we all give from hearts that have known the generous heart of God through Jesus Christ. At Ascension it is our custom to offer our financial pledges before the Lord on the last Sunday of our liturgical calendar, Christ the King, Sunday, November 22. We invite members and friends to bring in completed pledge cards on that date. We also invite you to listen to a testimony from a member a member of Church of the Ascension.
There will be a Thanksgiving Eve Service of Evensong on Wednesday, November 25 at 7pm. We hope you can join us. Any willing to share a testimony on what God has done in your life, please contact Jonathan Millard at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Didn’t get a chance to get connected to a community group at the fair on August 16? It’s not too late! You can still find a group and sign up online. If you would like help finding a community group, you can also contact David Trautman. Community Groups are a great way to foster supportive relationships and an important way to deepen your Christian walk.
