Life Stories

Open Hands, Open Heart

Practical, Spirit-Led Giving Through the Stewards Fund
In a time of financial hardship, God’s truth never seemed so clear.

It was early in 2008, and Andrea was participating in a course on the biblical view of money. She could feel God working in her heart, leading her toward something new. By fall of that year, the stock market crashed, and years of personal investments were seemingly gone.

If It's Not Given Cheerfully, Keep It

Cheerful giving is the Gospel.

It’s an emblem of God’s happy plan of redemption through Christ Jesus. To restore us, God didn’t hold back with a grimace; He joyfully went all-in.

That’s giving. That’s God.

Ask a Planner

Why should I consider leaving a gift in my will?

This issue's question answered by Lindsay Canan, J.D., Director of Planning
Q: Why should I consider leaving a gift in my will?

A. Many people give through their wills because it allows them to give in a more substantial way than they would ever be able to give otherwise.

By giving to your church and other ministries in this way, you can extend the impact of your generosity well beyond your lifetime and model a legacy of generosity to your loved ones.

The Final Word

“Remember this: you can’t serve God and money, but you can serve God with money.” 

— Selwyn Hughes
