Daily Readings on the Grace of Giving

A Message from Sr. Warden Charlie Downing
“Stepping in Faith” is the title for this year’s stewardship campaign for the ministry support of St. Philip’s. The focus of Stepping in Faith is on our need as a follower of Jesus to give.  As we take this journey, we will all be invited to pray: “Lord, where would You want me to be in my giving?” Throughout the campaign we will utilize a devotional titled Practicing Extravagant Generosity

You should have a copy of the book by now. Those that were not picked up at church were mailed on Tuesday, Oct. 22nd. If you did not receive a book, please contact the church office. 

Our campaign will begin on October 27th. Please join me in reading the daily devotions beginning October 28th. -- Sr. Warden Charlie Downing
