Hey EBC Family!
I pray this post finds God’s presence guiding you and His provisions meeting your every need! Have you enjoyed our Stewardship Sundays so far? For the past three Sundays we have been inspired to be totally committed stewards of God! God desires that we manage all He has entrusted us with the best way we can. That includes our lives, time, talents, treasures, His truth—the Gospel, and life’s trials. As we have learned God not only has given us the responsibility of stewardship He also has provided us with the supernatural ability and His resources to steward everything well, through the work of Jesus.
This Sunday we will have Commitment Sunday! Together as a church family we will renew our spiritual and financial commitments. Let me encourage you to join me and make or renew the top 3 commitments:
Commit to follow Jesus all the way and do what He wants you to do, go where He wants you to go, and be who he wants you to be!
Commit to pay your tithe (10% of your gross income) to the Lord here at EBC for the work of the ministry!
Commit to give your faith promise missions offering. Missions is our responsibility as a church to steward the Gospel of Jesus in our church, community, county, country and beyond. Faith promise missions offerings are given above and in addition to our tithes, for world missions. Missions offerings are used to financially support our missionaries, who have dedicated their lives to spread the Gospel of Jesus in our country (Church planting) and in foreign countries as well. If you have not given your National Church Planting Month offering you can do so this Sunday! Just mark your gift “Church Planting.” You can also tithe and give offerings online at www.ebclife.org. by clicking the “online giving” menu. Help steward the Gospel in our community, by inviting someone to Friend Day on November 5th! You can use the invite card provided in this envelope!
Let me encourage you to fill out two commitment cards. Keep one for your personal records and as a reminder of the commitments you have made! Turn the other card in this Sunday as an act of commitment to Jesus and the church. We also use the commitments made to plan our mission’s budget for the next year. So be sure to turn your commitment card in this Sunday! Do you or a family member need to be baptized? We will have baptisms on Sunday night! There will be a brief meeting, after the morning service, for all who are interested in being baptized.
Jesus is totally committed to us! He has saved us and has committed to provide all we need to follow Him as faithful stewards. Let’s do our part, by totally committing to be faithful to Him, with all He has entrusted to us!
Committed to Jesus and His church,
Pastor Mike Ramondetta
