The Generosity Project | Practicing stewardship in 2017
If you haven’t had a chance to turn in your stewardship commitment card, please take some time this week to make your commitment of prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness for the year 2017, either with orange commitment card or by making a pledge online. We’re counting on you to help ensure another great year of ministry and mission!
GPS: Grow through Prayer & Scripture
How about starting the new year with a new spiritual practice? We send out a daily email with a prayer, reflection, or Scripture reading – an excellent resource for your daily quiet time. If you don’t already receive it, subscribe now at www.hopegateway.com or through our Facebook page.
