On Sunday, October 19, 2014, Rob Swineford prepared us for Stewardship Sunday with the following passage from Matthew.
Matthew 17: 24-27.
When they came to Capernaum, the collectors of the half-shekel tax went up to Peter and said, “Does not your teacher pay the tax?” He said, “Yes.” And when he came home, Jesus spoke to him first, saying, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their sons or from others?” And when he said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then the sons are free. However, not to give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook, and take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth you will find a shekel; take that and give it to them for me and for yourself.”
Stewardship Sunday will be October 26th. Please remember to bring your pledge card, which was mailed this week, and place it in the offering plate during the offertory. Pledge cards are available in the narthex.
