Vicki Nelson, Stewardship Animator for Western Canada, offers us this snapshot of the many stewardship resources available for 2022. May these support and inspire your community of faith’s ministry of giving, sharing, and supporting.
NEW! 2022 Your Generosity Matters Booklets
Filled with inspiring stories, prayers and thought-provoking reflection questions, the 2022 Your Generosity Matters booklets will arrive at your church in January. Turn to this booklet when you need inspiring stories to share during worship, meeting openers, or small group conversation starters, and for your own personal devotions.
FULL Boxing Day Service Available Now
This year, Boxing Day lands on a Sunday. In order to support ministry leaders planning two back-to-back services and because Boxing Day has social justice roots, the Mission & Service team has prepared a full Boxing Day service. Reflections can be offered by one worship leader or many. They can be shared separately or gathered into one sermon. The liturgy also contains prayers, hymn suggestions, and children’s time.
Gifts with Vision
Our new gifts ideas for 2021-2022 are now available. Once again, we have the opportunity to “help change the world” with our generosity, and through specific Mission & Service Partners! While every pastoral charge has received a paper copy of the Gifts with Vision Catalogue, be sure to log on to the website to receive a complete list of this year’s gift options! See Gifts with Vision.
Our gifts transform and save lives, inspire meaning and purpose and build a better world.
