Sunday Notes

October 9th, 2018

The arrival of fall means many things. It means changing weather and leaf colors. It means football season and pumpkin spiced everything. It also means that it is that time of year when we begin prayerfully considering our finances for the coming year and how we will be faithful stewards of God’s gifts.
I hesitate to call this time of year “Stewardship Season” because I believe that stewardship doesn’t have a season. We are always seeking ways to faithfully use and give our time, energy, and money to further God’s Kingdom all around us. Here are RPC, I believe that we are a part of that Kingdom work. I think that our weekly worship gatherings, our youth and children’s ministry, our mission efforts in our community, and much more is all connected to what God is doing in our world.
For that reason, I would like to invite you all to join me in this stewardship drive to consider how we all might Join God in this important work. This week you will receive your stewardship mailing complete with a pledge card and short devotional guide. I encourage you all to study these scriptures, spend time in prayer, and then make a commitment to give your time, energy, and financial resources to join the work that God is doing right now!
If you have any questions about this process, please feel free to contact me directly.
Thank you all for your faithfulness and joy in this journey of following Jesus,

Grateful for all of you,

Pastor Austin
