The Annual Giving Campaign is over –
A new budget year has begun.
What’s next in promoting gratitude,
or is “stewardship” over and done?
Dear God, what other ways can we reach
someone sitting in a pew,
To help her see that what she has
Has really come from You?
To help her explore and understand
The riches of your grace
And contemplate your Holy Spirit’s
way of finding us in this place.
“Stewardship” is so much more
than asking as the budget guides
It’s a ministry meant to deepen faith,
inspiring trust in how God provides.
There are many ways to speak to this
And not just for today’s brief living
It’s good to explain that gratitude to God
Can leave a legacy through planned giving.
So arise, shine, faithful stewardship teams –
There is joy, hope and gratitude to be found.
Be intentional about finding ways
To keep your ministry strong year ‘round.
And if you’d like some help or ideas
for stewardship ministry to make new gains
We’ll customize a plan for you – it’s what we do –
at Core Capital Campaigns.
