The Vine Fellowship Church - Copley Ohio
Fall is a time of beautiful landscapes covered in changing leaves, a time of harvest
and bounty from what we have grown throughout the year, and it is a time to be
thankful for what we have in our lives. Now is the time for us to commit to our fi-
nancial Stewardship for next year.
Our Scripture is “The Principle of the Faithful Giver (1 Timothy 6:17-18). Be
‘ready to share’ (NRSV). Paul’s command highlights the nature of why we give –
because God expects us to do so. Our resources serve as another opportunity to be
a part of the work of God in this world and to do good things in God’s name. We
do not share our resources for pride or personal gain but because God covets the
whole of our lives, including our earthly possessions, to be offered in His service.”
Stanford, S. “6 Principles of Biblical Stewardship” 1 August 2016.
“Give yourself an invaluable gift this season: the opportunity to bring-
what has been hidden into the light, to overcome fears of scarcity, live
out of a sense of abundance, and experience the fullness of life God of-
fers us in love.” Dunham, L. “How Much is Enough?” The Stewardship
Magazine 2005 p.13.

share” as you pledge your financial commitment to God through The
