The I Have Called You Friends theme is based on John 15:15. It springs from an understanding of the offering as a time to respond to God’s grace. The offering is celebrated with joy. It becomes the expression of the Christ-centered community that is Christ-like in its compassion.
The I Have Called You Friends Starter Kit contains digital PDF files that you can use to print materials for your congregation’s annual giving campaign. They are not designed for use by commercial printers. They include:
- commitment card
- four bulletin inserts
- letterhead and matching envelopes
- bulletin cover in 8.5 x 14″ and 8.5 x 11″ formats
A coordinating easy-to-use, adaptable plan for the I Have Called You Friends emphasis is sold separately in the corresponding issue of the Giving: Growing Faithful Stewards in Your Congregation magazine Volume 9.
