Given by Rev. Madison Shockley November 17, 2019

On this Stewardship Sunday, we get straight to the point ,just like Paul did in our reading today. Those who sow bountifully will reap bountifully. When you give, do so with cheer. You must be willing though. As much as we kid, you are not under compulsion to give. We ask only what you are comfortable giving. Rev. Shockley reviewed what Pilgrim has done in the past. We have been sowing sparingly/conservatively. What would it mean to sow bountifully? Currently, we use funds from the preschool to help balance our budget. Our first challenge is to fully fund church operations from church revenue. This goal is within our grasp. This would free up the preschool revenue to do things we want to do but have been unable to as of yet. We need to be the church we can be rather than the church we are today. Supporting this church is for each of you. This is the church the world needs today.
