Is anyone else using the UCC stewardship materials this year? I preached my stewardship sermon last Sunday (we are celebrating stewardship all month, but this was the money sermon) so I went off-lectionary and wrote liturgy for the service. Feel free to adapt and/or use if you have Stewardship Sunday coming up!
Stewardship Call to Worship | Blessed To Be A Blessing
Sarah E. Weaver (C) 2014
Friends, we gather together this morning to proclaim
the ways in which God is working within our midst.
We have been blessed by God!
We gather together to give thanks
for the ways in which God is working within our midst.
We are being blessed by God!
We gather together to open our eyes
to the ways God is using us to work within our midst.
We will continue to be blessed by God!
Dear ones, God has given us so much
and is very much alive, at work and still speaking among us.
We are called to give back.
We are called to be good stewards;
good stewards of our time, of our resources and of our money.
Let us give thanks to our God of blessings
and affirm our commitment
to the ministry God is calling us into.
Let us give thanks to God!
Let us proclaim our faith in God!
Let us worship God!
