“All that we have is Thine alone, a trust, oh, Lord from Thee!”
Our recent Ministry Fair was an example of sharing our time and talents for the Lord. We discovered that our faith community at SOTH offers many opportunities to do just that, from our LWML to those who oversee our “Little Flock.” Your response was overwhelming. We were awed by the creativity of our members: a great example of what we can accomplish when we work together for Jesus. Pray that we may continue enthusiastic response as we work in and with the various groups and Boards within the congregation. During the coming year, there will be plenty of opportunities to work with the Stewardship board, either as a member or a volunteer in the various fund raisers and charity projects.
Please join the Board of Church Stewardship in celebrating and sharing the gifts that God has given to all of us, as we decide which charities to support through-out the year. (Examples of charities include: Shepherd’s Little Flock Daycare, Trinity Hope Haitian Mission, Bethesda, Together in Missions, House of Hope, Good Samaritan Center in Crossville, Crossville Christian School, Social Ministry, LCMS Mid-South District, LCMS Synod).
We have a wonderful team and enjoy working on projects that encourage ourselves and others to “give back!” Help us by preparing for and by attending our annual fund-raiser for a chosen charity, Trinity Hope, in support of the spiritual and physical well-being of Haitian children. Participate in our annual stewardship campaign, that encourages us to share God’s gifts of Time, Talent and Treasures. Please participate in special events, such Ministry Fair and Bible Study that encourage fellowship and understanding about opportunities to share our gifts. Participate in ongoing Stewardship opportunities, as well as volunteer projects that are coordinated by this or other Boards
