Be looking in the weeks ahead for more on Word Alive ... and be in prayer as to whether this opportunity might be made to order for your spiritual life!
October is Lakewood’s Month of Stewardship Emphasis
In the past month, our Lakewood UMC family has been an example of Christ by reaching out through
service to our disaster-affected neighbors. Our hearts are with our community as we continue to help
each other recover, renew, and rebuild.
During the month of October, we are inviting each of you to prayerfully consider opportunities of
stewardship by means of the resources the Lord has given us. We will also strive to renew our
individual vows to support our congregation with our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.
Our God is an extravagant God. In all of this, no blessing exceeds that of the grace which extends
to each of us by way of the cross of Jesus Christ.
Over the next few weeks, please check your mail, email, newsletter, and our church social media pages
for information about this special time of reflection and commitment. You will be receiving a letter from
Pastor Joe Fort, along with your 2018 “Treasures Of The Heart” Stewardship Commitment Card. Join us in
fervent prayer as we ask the Lord to multiply that which we have to give, and to give from the heart.
Our Commitment Sunday will be October 22. Please bring your card to service and share in a special
service of commitment, as we give over in faith to God so that He may multiply our resources to further His kingdom.
