Worship service – October 24, 2021 – “Extravagant Generosity”

Today we close our stewardship campaign with Consecration Sunday. As we bring our pledges to the altar, we are not just making promises of giving, we are “consecrating” them, dedicating them to a higher purpose. We have been encouraged to seek God’s wisdom in how we pledge our resources of finances, time, and energy to the church. As we consecrate our pledges, we acknowledge that they will be blessed and multiplied by God for ministry in this world.

Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning.  Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.

Our Scripture Reading is from Luke 12:13-21 NRSV.   Jesus tells the story known as the “parable of the rich fool.” He contrasts storing up treasure on earth with being rich in God.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC.  Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service. I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
