Hello Friends,
 

 You’re probably used to hearing people in church talk about giving. But when was the last time in church that you talked about earning or saving? Is it unchristian to earn money? Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families?  

John Wesley didn’t think so. Wesley, the Christian evangelist and founder of the Methodist movement, gave a sermon called “The Use of Money.” In it, he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.  

From April 22 to May 20, our church will experience an exciting new generosity program series, Earn. Save. Give.: Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, this series describes Wesley’s surprising advice and introduces us each week to faithful Christians who, like all of us, struggle with money. There will be opportunities to engage with the program series in worship and small group discussions.  

You’ll be hearing about the program in worship, in Grace Notes, Facebook, and our weekly emails.  

In the coming weeks you will receive service and financial commitment cards for you to think about and pray over during the four weeks of this program series. You will have the opportunity to drop off your card in the designated boxes located at the main entrance and narthex/lobby on Commitment Sunday May 20.

 Join us during the program as we learn about earning, saving, and giving.  

In Christ,

 Reverend Paul Hahm and The Generosity Team
