Stewardship

Generosity is a term we rarely use. Some may think it is reserved for only the wealthy. Actually, generosity is not about our bank accounts, it is about our hearts. Jesus’ response to the widow’s offering shows this. Generosity reflects God’s nature. 

Nothing we have is too big or grand to offer our awesome God. No gift is too small if it represents our prayers, a sacrifice, and a generous portion of our resources. When our hearts are filled with gratitude, nothing God asks of us seems unpleasant or impossible. Giving calls us to put our trust in God as we give away resources we think we need.

Each fall, we ask everyone who is committed in sharing life together at Highland to make a commitment to what they will contribute of their prayers, presences, gifts, service, and witness in the coming year.  This pledge can be made in worship on Sunday mornings during our stewardship series, by visiting the business office at the church, or online at the link below.
