As a member of the Rehoboth Congregational Church and as a member of the Stewardship Committee, I would like to say thank you to everyone for taking care of our church. Not only have you taken a financial responsibility by contributing to the weekly offering, but you have also been stewards of this church in a spiritual sense, by trying to live out the word of Christ.
Thank you to Church School teachers and helpers for giving your time to ensure all of our children learn about Jesus and our church in a safe and comfortable environment.
Thank you to the choir for giving your time and talent in making a joyful noise.
To members of the Trustees: Thank you for your leadership in maintaining our building and grounds, for overseeing our financial stewardship and for enforcing the policies of this church.
To members of the Deaconate: Thank you for assisting Sarah in the weekly service.
To parents of the youth and children of our church: Thank you for driving your kids to youth group events, for encouraging them on Children's Day, in the Christmas Pageant and in the Youth Choir, for volunteering your time at Trunk-or-Treat and the Easter Egg Hunt,
for chaperoning trips and for donating to our programs.
Thank you to members of the Flower Committee for giving their artistic talents in beautifying the altar each week.
Thank you to everyone who participates in the annual Christmas Bazaar - from the planners and bakers, to the knitters and parking attendants, to the cooks, servers and cleanup crew, and everyone else who works tirelessly behind the scenes to make that weekend a success.
I have seen members be good stewards of the church in so many ways. Building a Baptismal font, strumming a guitar during service, running a pancake breakfast, starting a bible study group, visiting shut-ins, knitting prayer shawls, fixing a broken light, shoveling snow and painting a classroom. The list goes on and on. I would like to see more of this.
This fall, the Stewardship Committee will hold our annual pledge campaign looking for your financial contributions. But for right now, we want to ask you to be Stewards of this church in a different way. We want you to pledge your time or pledge your talents to RCC.
If you have done this in the past, again - thank you! If you haven't, then I invite you to become more active in your church. Show us how musical you are. Show us how good your secret cookie recipe is. Help decorate a bulletin board. Volunteer to serve in the kitchen for the next spaghetti supper. Be a greeter on Sunday morning. Run a coat drive. Not only will your talent, skills and time make this ch urch a better place, you will meet some good people and make some great friends along the way.
Be a steward of your church.
