                     Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity

What defines your life? Is it wealth? Belongings? Faith? 

Many of us live with a scarcity mentality, worried that we must gather and hoard as much as possible, saving for some imagined “rainy day.” Or we focus on self-gratification. But the Bible promises both God’s blessings and joy for those who choose to live another way. 
 
We hope you will benefit from this series and resources on how we can manage our financial resources and truly experience simplicity, generosity, and joy.
 

Yours in Christ,

                     Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity

 
One of Jesus’ great teaching parables involves a sower who cast seed along the ground. The sower hoped the seeds would sprout, grow, and bear good fruit. Some seeds did just that, producing a great harvest. But others, Jesus said, fell among thorns and, though they began to grow, these good plants were quickly choked out. Jesus said the thorns were “the cares of the world and the lure of wealth” (Matthew 13:22).

In a culture where having “enough” seems to have become a never-ending pursuit, Jesus’ parable remains incredibly relevant. Many of us are chasing the American dream in ways that lead to stress, anxiety, and fear—thorns that can rob us of the ability to enjoy the abundant lives of purpose that God intended for us.
All of us have struggled with these issues at one time or another. They are important issues that we cannot ignore.

This is why, during the month of October we will begin a worship emphasis called Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. During this time through corporate worship, we will explore what the Bible teaches us about financial management. We’ll hear expert advice and stories about what others have learned by working through financial challenges. Each week we will provide you with some practical tools you can use to assess your financial situation and develop a financial plan with a biblical foundation.

At the conclusion of the emphasis, we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of our offerings to God through our church in the coming year.

We will consecrate these commitments in the worship service on Sunday, November 8th.
We hope you will join us in the coming weeks as we look at how we can manage our financial resources and truly experience simplicity, generosity, and joy.

Yours in Christ,

Rev. Jay Armstrong
