Stewardship in October

 
Treasure: A Stewardship Program on Faith and Money

The theme is based on Jesus’ words,

“Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.” Matthew 6:21

Over a period of four weeks, we are looking at the many ways that our treasure affects our hearts through a sermon series in worship, and a Sunday School class led by Pastor Monte Marshall that meets in the Labyrinth Room, 10-10:45. We will consider how financial challenges in our personal lives affect our relationships with people and with God and how giving helps to determine the way we feel and act.

Next Sunday, we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of giving to Travis Park United Methodist Church for the coming year. Commitment cards will be mailed this week and available next Sunday. We can fill out these cards and bring them to worship on Sunday, October 26.

 Investing our treasure in the things of God allows us to be a part of things bigger than ourselves.

Schedule for the Treasure series:
Oct 5:   Where Is Your Treasure? (Matthew 6:19-21)
Oct 12: The Problem with Two Masters (Matthew 6:24)
Oct 19: Giving Your Treasure Back to God (Matthew 6:1-6)
Oct 24: Don’t Worry ’Bout a Thing (Matthew 6:25-34)


 

OCTOBER, 2014:

A 4-Week Book Study with Pastor Monte

10am Sundays, Labyrinth Room

Jesus said, Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Whether you are in plenty or in want, money has a direct connection to your values, your faith, and the health of your relationships. It’s no wonder that in the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus presented a radical message about our “treasure” and our hearts. Treasure by Jacob Armstrong uses the Sermon on the Mount to help us reexamine what our treasure is. How do we spend our time, energy, and money? If our hearts follow our treasure, as Jesus taught, then we'd better make sure they are aligned.
