Campaign for 2023 – “In Gratitude for God’s Abundance”
God’s abundance is all around us. In Jesus first miraculous sign (John 2:1-11), Jesus keeps a wedding reception going with an overwhelming abundance of water turned to wine, 6 jars holding 20 to 30 gallons each. Do the math. This sign highlights God’s desire for us all to have abundant life.
In Gratitude For God’s Abundance is the theme of our Fall stewardship appeal this year. This theme points us to the abundance of ministry that we have witnessed and participated in through Immanuel congregation this past year, but also points us to ways that we can grow in our faith and gratitude.
Our grateful response to God’s abundance demonstrates to us and to the world around us that in fact God has provided us everything we need and that we have enough, enough even to share. This next month we invite you to reflect about how you respond in gratitude to God’s gift of abundant life for you.
