God’s gift of imagination is a wondrous thing. We have been blessed in countless ways because of the creativity of the human mind and energy of the human spirit. However, our imagination can just as easily evoke fears—real and unfounded—that impede our spiritual growth as Christians. In the third chapter of Ephesians, Paul gives us many opportunities to use our imagination in a positive way, beginning with his description of God’s gift of salvation as a mystery. Verses 20 and 21 are an enthusiastic wrap-up to Paul’s narrative of God’s abundant grace, majestic power, and overflowing love that is so wide, so long, so deep, and so high that it surpasses our comprehension.
The Fearless Generosity response method includes four worship services that feature testimony, time, and congregational challenges.

Financial commitments are presented during the final worship service.
