NEW for 2014! Seeking Gods's Best is a four-session, church-wide, biblically based emphasis challenging Great Commission Christians to be deliberate as faithful financial stewards to impact the world with the message of Christ!

Motivations Motivations

Motivations is a 4-unit discipleship study based on the Letter to Philemon. Each segment explores a different motivation for generous giving. Faithful stewardship demonstrates that we are “living with heart” for Christ and his church. The interplay among the Apostle Paul, Philemon, and Onesimus revealed in this epistle, allows us to discover refreshment (v.5), usefulness (v.11), gratitude (v.19), and eternity (v.15) as encouragements and motivations for generous giving. This includes CD, bulletin inserts, poster/guide, and a DVD.

When we do, God will multiply our witness among our neighbors, and bless our land (3:12). This includes CD, bulletin inserts, poster, and a DVD.
