Our Money Story
October 11-November 1
From October 11th through November 1st, we’re going to talk about money. This does happen to coincide with the church pledge drive, as we seek to secure financial commitments for the 2021 budget and the ministries we hope to bring to life next year. But it’s less about that and more about spirituality. It’s about us. It’s about our identity and how we live it out. It’s about who we are, who we want to be, and who God is calling us to be.
The series invites us to consider the money stories we grew up with. In your early home, was every penny pinched, or was there always enough money to buy that new toy you couldn’t live without? In your childhood, were you taught about saving and giving, and did your caregivers give you opportunities to do both—or was money a secret thing that no one ever talked about?
In our adult lives, do we regard money with shame, regret, desire, or love for others? Most likely, it’s a combination of all these things.
So let’s explore it all together, through the lens of Scripture, experience, and personal testimony, as we consider the place of money in our lives and its meaning in the lives we hope to live.
