An indispensable part of the Extravagant Generosity
stewardship program, this volume, by Bishop Schnase, opens the Scriptures to show the joy and grace of giving. Designed to provide daily Bible readings for the four weeks of the program, it leads the reader to explore such questions as "Why do we give," "Who benefits most from our giving," and "Where does true contentment come from?" By reading and following this guide to the spiritual discipline of stewardship, church members will experience afresh the joy of serving God with their time, talents, and gifts.
Additional program components include:
An overview timeline, providing quick information on what happens during each week of the stewardship campaign.
A guidebook for leaders that covers all aspects of the campaign, from detailed plans for each of the four Sunday services to marketing materials like flyers and postcards to e-mail messages and letters designed to be sent to specific groups within the congregation-all available on the enclosed CD-ROM.
A small-group leader's guide to host Sunday school and other small groups during the program using the devotional book.
A DVD with video segments for four group-study sessions and short clips for use in worship.
The Extravagant Generosity kit is also available.
