The stewardship department encourages faithful financial support of the Lord’s work through spiritual motivation. It has a selection of materials to assist the church in educating church members in faithful tithing and support of church budget.


Offertory Reading


Helen Keller is the most famous deaf-blind person who overcame such a challenge thanks to the persistent and loving efforts of her teacher, Anne Sullivan, “the miracle worker.”

The deaf use their hands to communicate. People without disabilities also use hand gestures to express feelings. Some of those gestures are cross-cultural, universal, and of common knowledge.

The Bible speaks of hands in many contexts. In the Sermon on the Mount, for instance, Jesus said that when giving, your left hand should not know what your right hand is doing. In other words, don’t make public your good works in order to exalt yourself (Matt. 6:1-4). Solomon says that whatever comes to your hands to do, do it according to the strength the Lord has given you (Eccl. 9:10). Hands symbolize opportunity in this context. Hands on the head symbolize defeat (Jer. 2:37). You can use your hands to bless others or to fight others.

Deuteronomy 15, verses 7 and 8, speak of two hand signs: tightfisted and openhanded. Moses encouraged the Israelites to be openhanded toward those in need. “ Give generously to them and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the LORD your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to” (Deut. 15:10, NIV). What a great opportunity we have in front of us to receive God’s blessings by giving to our local congregation and the regional work through your local Conference.

May you choose to be openhanded when it comes to mission.
