What Now?

Stewardship Notes for July, 2019

     In our monthly articles, we have tried to emphasize different aspects of a Stewardship lifestyle.  We hope that you have come to appreciate the depth and breadth of Stewardship and to recognize that this subject includes our whole lives.   We said previously that a steward is someone who manages another person’s property, finances, or affairs.  This month, we want to remind all of us that we are stewards of ourselves – our bodies, our minds, and our spirits.  Now, you might be thinking that, if there is anything that truly and exclusively belongs to ourselves, and not to anyone else, it is our very selves!   Right?  Absolutely not!  Let us explore what the Holy Bible says.

Peace has a long tradition of nurturing our youth and families through the programs of Cross Trails Ministry.

Youth often form friendships that last a lifetime. This year’s theme is “God in Action.” Our youth will explore how God calls each of us to do God’s work in the world – everyone has a part when God is in Action!
