How can we help our young people understand abstract concepts like “stewardship” and “mission”? We can make them less abstract, more hands on. We can show them what generosity looks like, provide a visual representation of giving.
Our young people are exploring themes of stewardship and mission through a monthly offering. We are asking the whole congregation to participate, so that the children have a real and tangible view of the giving and commitment to mission we display as a church family. Special collections of items such as canned goods or clothing items take place the first Sunday of each month, in conjunction with our celebration of Communion.
