This Sunday the 14th at 9am and 11am, we welcome to the pulpit, Dr. Jim Higgins. He will also lead our Sunday morning class on Chapter 2 of Earn. Save. Give. He will return to lead us in combined worship at 11am on October 28th for Commitment Sunday.

You’re probably used to hearing people in church talk about giving. But when was the last time in church that you talked about earning or saving? Is it unchristian to earn money? Is it wrong to save for ourselves and our families?

John Wesley didn’t think so. In his sermon called “The Use of Money,” he said that the important thing isn’t money itself but how we use it. Wesley’s surprising advice still rings true today: earn all you can, save all you can, give all you can.

During the month of October, our church will experience an exciting new stewardship program, Earn. Save. Give. Wesley’s Simple Rules for Money, developed by popular author and pastor James A. Harnish. The program combines group discussion, optional book, and DVD, in which Harnish describes Wesley’s surprising advice to the many of us who struggle with money.

St. John will offer opportunities for discussion on Sunday mornings in October at 10am in the Fellowship Hall or again on Wednesday evenings beginning October 3rd, so you can choose what’s best for your schedule. The youth and children will also have the class, and we will be distributing devotions for use at home. Pick up a copy for $5.
