Practicing Generosity - 2023 Estimate of Giving
The spiritual practice of financial generosity is one of the important ways that we respond to God’s love. Faithful stewards recognize that God provides the resources in our care. A prayerfully planned “first fruits” practice of giving generously reminds us of God’s primary place in our lives.
Dave Boyd, of the Faith and Finance team, shares some insights about how our practice of financial generosity impacts the ministry of Christ the Savior Lutheran Church, and allows us to be faithful stewards of the building and programs.
