"You are the light of the world.  In the same way, let your light shine before others,so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven."- Matthew 5:14,16

Stewards of Time, Talents, Treasure

Each Fall our Session looks ahead to the next year, to envision what the Lord’s Spirit may be leading this extraordinary church to do in Christ’s name.  Session asks

Will we continue to support youth leadership development through our scouting programs and as host of the middle school and senior high youth ministries of Restoration church?

Will we continue our outreach mission support of Hands of Christ back-to-school clothes and supplies,  support of local campus ministries at The Citadel and College of Charleston,  and regional CRU (campus crusade) leadership development?

Will we continue to staff our worship, ministries, admin support, and outreach missions at current part-time levels?

Our session coordinates the volunteer energies of dozens of members through its eight standing committees.  Each Fall these volunteers are asked to envision their ministries and mission into the next year.  Their planning becomes, not only a wish list for the coming year, but also a wish list request to session’s Budget and Finance Committee, who will draft a 2017 budget to include as many of these ministry and mission wishes as we can support financially.

It is not true that “the church is a business like any other business.”  It is true that your elected church leaders are very conscientious with your financial contributions.  It is true that our financial stewards will generate a balanced budget, income and expense, for the coming year.

It is true that “God’s business” depends upon the volunteer Time, the personal Talents of our members, and the donated Treasure that makes us partners in God’s work.  We will continue to be faithful financial stewards, providing a strong foundation to grow in the directions we believe the Lord’s Spirit is inviting us to grow.

It is inspiring to me, as your pastor, to see YPPC members and friends provide such a solid financial foundation for our ministries, our missions, our staff support of all God’s work.

Grace, Peace, Joy  --  Pastor Art
