*NEW! In response to the challenges churches are facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve created Faithful, Hopeful, Loving Essentials, an easy-to-use, four-week stewardship emphasis for churches of any size and any worship situation. Essentials provides a basic, easy-to-share emphasis that may be helpful for churches who are providing a variety of worship experiences—or no worship experience—or who want to offer a stewardship emphasis in a short time frame with limited personnel and preparation time. This digital resource provides editable, reproducible materials applicable for print and digital communications for emphasis preparation, invitation, and follow-up, including devotionals, ways to give, commitment forms, thank you letters, and more. You’ll receive Essentials automatically with your Faithful, Hopeful, Loving Year-Round Stewardship Resource purchase.
