Spiritual Preparation, Session 11: The Gift Of Stewardship

In "Wonderful Welcome," a Tapestry of Faith program

Take a quiet moment to consider ways that you have contributed to the life of the congregation. The fact that you are teaching suggests you take an active part in the well being of the religious education program. Did you volunteer recently because you have a child in the program? Were you recruited years ago and are still teaching? Reflect on what motivates you to make teaching a part of your contribution to congregational life.

Be honest about any mixed emotions you have about stewardship and hospitality. How do you view your stewardship to your congregation in terms of both finances and time? What are the expectations in your congregation regarding volunteering and donating? Regarding hospitality, are newcomers welcomed every Sunday? Do you speak with people you don't recognize during coffee hour? How have you felt valuable, and valued, as a steward? How not? Bring your willingness to be a steward of generosity into this session.
