Reformation and New Consecration Sunday
October 29 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Dear Fellow Stewards of University Baptist Church,
Each year, we celebrate a stewardship emphasis. What does that mean?
As Christians we devote a period of time to individually and prayerfully consider our gifts and how we can share them to meet the needs of others. During October we will once again observe a time of renewed consecration as each Sunday we hear a testimonial of stewardship, culminating on October the 29th with New Consecration Sunday, that special worship event inviting the entire congregation to come forward and lay our sealed Estimate of Giving cards on the altar.
This year, our theme is Celebrate! We have so much to celebrate as a result of your ability to demonstrate good stewardship time and again throughout the year. Considering the milestone achievement of paying off the mortgage, the many congregations UBC hosts, the individual ministries that offer so much, or individual stewardship that so many members of this congregation continually share, we have much to celebrate.
Each Sunday in October, we will hear from some of our good stewards and celebrate the accomplishments. As we prepare for that powerful moment during New Consecration Sunday, there is no better time than right now to carefully consider the question “What am I being called upon by God to give?” Let’s celebrate this rewarding journey toward New Consecration Sunday, as we prayerfully anticipate God’s presence among us on October the 29th.
