To be a good steward is the call for individual Christians and for congregations, regardless of size. Congregations have a responsibility to teach, inspire, and model good stewardship. Stewardship in the Small Membership Congregation is a stewardship resource especially created with small congregations in mind.
Stewardship in the Small Membership Congregation was written by Clark Hargus, Disciples of Christ pastor, and has been used successfully by small membership congregations throughout North America for more than two decades. Originally titled Stewardship in the Small Membership Rural Congregation, the title and text have been edited in this digital release to recognize that small congregations exist in a variety of geographic contexts and to reflect today's communications options.
With more than 30 pages of materials, Stewardship in the Small Membership Congregation is packed with resources: an overview of the importance of congregational stewardship and the involvement of leadership, a six-session Bible study, and a complete congregational stewardship emphasis plan that includes Sunday school or small group study lessons and worship service materials.
