The Called to Be the Church 2020 giving program is ready and waiting to offer you everything you need to increase giving in your congregation. Don’t miss out on this vital opportunity to take generosity to new heights in your congregation!

A hard copy of Called to Be the Church has already been mailed to your church and is a click away at www.stewardshiptoolkit.ca. This invaluable resource provides everything you need to get a congregational giving program off the ground, including step-by-step guides for a variety of programs, worship services, sermons, videos, and children’s resources for key liturgical seasons and more.

Only you know which programs and resources will work best to encourage generosity and gratitude in your community of faith. That’s why Called to Be the Church is designed to be adaptable. You can pick and choose from a wealth of inspiring ideas.

Good things happen when a church focuses time, energy, and money on others—it stimulates generosity and creative thinking that will enliven YOUR congregation. Carrying out a giving program annually lets everyone know your church has a vision that is bigger than just keeping the doors open. With God’s mission and our gifts, all things are possible!

If you would like to hear more about Called to Be the Church — or about Mission & Service, legacy giving or another aspect of stewardship — please don’t hesitate to contact me. I’m here to support and serve you!
