Stewardship Committee invites you...

Sunday April 11th

The SOV Stewardship committee is hosting Nancy Kingston at our adult forum class this Sunday from 10-10:45 AM. 
This is a great opportunity to learn more about where and how our benevolence dollars work to help the ministry of our larger church.

We are excited to have a special opportunity to learn where our benevolence to the ELCA Oregon Synod is directed and how it helps make a difference.

Nancy Kingston is an active member of Calvary Lutheran in Hillsboro.  She has been trained to volunteer to talk to congregations about where our giving to the Oregon Synod is directed.  She is called a "Mission Interpreter".

On Sunday, April 11, she will share information with our congregation during the adult education time at 10 AM.  Nancy will give a very brief synopsis of what she will be sharing with us at the end of 8:30 service and the beginning of 11 AM service.  There will be time for questions and discussion.  We will have this time with her recorded so that those that are teaching or unable to attend will have the opportunity to listen to her presentation.

The Stewardship committee is excited to have more education for our congregation.  We want to enable us as a congregation to learn more about the opportunities that have to help when SOV gives our church   offering (or benevolence) to the bigger church. 

Our congregation has voted to increase our benevolence and showing that we are acting in faith as we seek God's guidance to grow the ministry of our congregation as we commit ourselves to Stewardship as a church as well as us as individuals.

Please continue to keep SOV's ministry in your prayers as we strive to reach out and act together in faith as we "Build on Christ" as a "Caring community".

Together in Christ,

Your Stewardship committee
