Giving with a conscience

This message is from week two in our series, “Spending, Living, and Giving with a Conscience,” where we take a deep dive into the Biblical perspective on using money and stuff. Every follower of Jesus knows that we are called to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. But what about our wallet? We know we’re are called to make an offering as part of worship, but what about spending money at the grocery store or a restaurant? This series will help us explore today’s culture of consumerism and the impact of what we buy. This three week series will finish up on October 27, and during that worship service we’ll make our commitments to being generous with God by making a financial pledge. 

Spending with a conscience

This week is the first in our series, “Spending, Living, and Giving with a Conscience,” where we take a deep dive into the Biblical perspective on using money and stuff. Every follower of Jesus knows that we are called to love God with all our heart, mind, soul and strength. But what about our wallet? We know we’re are called to make an offering as part of worship, but what about spending money at the grocery store or a restaurant? This series will help us explore today’s culture of consumerism and the impact of what we buy. This three week series will finish up on October 27, and during that worship service we’ll make our commitments to being generous with God by making a financial pledge. 

Let’s get radical

This is our first message in the series “Five Practices of Fruitful Congregations.” This series, based on the work of Robert Schnase, highlights the basic practices of healthy, vital and fruitful congregations. Our hope is that each of us can take another step in embodying these characteristics for the common good.

First Friday Art Night

Beginning Friday, September 6th from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m., CUMC will launch its new opportunity to gather. It’s called “heARTS Alive!” This is a branch of the church, a faith community which celebrates the arts in order to interact with the area towns by creating a positive environment, strengthening community interaction, discovering and expressing each person’s creativity.

Every first Friday of the month, all are welcome to come and explore your creative side. We do ask that all children be accompanied by an adult, but this is open to all – and it is FREE! One month we might be painting, another we might be working with clay or some other medium and another month something else!

Want to know more? Or have a great idea that the group might do? Then contact Lori at lori@centenaryfaith.org. See you in September!
