Place Service and Time on Offering Envelopes

One of our board members make a suggestion that really excited a lot of us in relationship to whole life stewardship.

She brought up the idea of including Christian service and time places on
the weekly envelops in addition to $ lines.

I thought this was an incredible way to help persons begin to understand
that stewardship involves all we do in relationship to our Lord.
