Stewardship of Our Neighbors

The third session of the stewardship series, Stewardship of our Neighbors, Love Thy Neighbor Stewardship Poster addressed both the rewards and challenges of stewardship. A panel of First Church people mixed between young and older adults led the discussion by sharing their stewardship experiences. It motivated others to join a lively discussion in which new ideas to build on our stewardship efforts emerged.  They included making our church missions more visible to the congregation and breaking down some of the cultural barriers that stand in the way of new mission efforts.
