What do you treasure?

October 6 - 27

   

On Sunday, October 6, we will begin a church-wide study and worship emphasis called Treasure: A Stewardship Program on Faith and Money

Over a period of four weeks, we will look at the many ways that our treasure (time, energy, money) affects our hearts. We will consider how financial challenges in our personal lives affect our relationships with people and with God. We will see how giving helps to determine the way we feel and act. If you have stress related to money or feel there may be more that God is calling you to do with your resources, this will be a helpful study.

At the end of the four weeks, on Consecration Sunday, October 27 we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of giving to Green Street Church for the coming year. 

We look forward to an exciting month considering our treasure and God’s treasure. Here are just a few of the many activities planned:

Sunday, October 6 following worship- Prayer Walk

Friday, October 11 at 6pm – Campfire – Storytelling and S’mores! (rain date 10/12)

Monday, October 14 – October 19 - Cleaning Week! Stop by and pick a task! 

Saturday, October 26, 9am – 2pm – Downsizing Retreat with Rev. Gayle Holden


Be sure to check out our Facebook Group page for daily activities. To join the group email the church office and we will email you an invitation to join the Face book Group page.

Spiritual Practice Suggestions from Rev. Kristin L. White

Rev. Kristin L. White

Prayer & Community

Whether we live in the heart of a city, a suburban neighborhood, or the rural countryside, we all live in a community. Our lives intertwine with other people and organizations.  The following suggestions are ways to be spiritually connected with our communities, every day and anywhere.

Prayer Walks

Walk through your neighborhood or community with an open, prayerful heart. What celebrations and needs do you see? Who are the people you encounter? Pray for those you pass.

Community Prayer Maps

Get a map of your community. Every day, choose a place on the map - a street, a neighborhood, a home, a business, or a public place - and spend time praying for the people and activities in that location.

Community Meetings

Whenever your community has a town hall  or city council meeting, devote time beforehand to pray for the meeting, for wisdom and compassion for all involved, and for the well-being of the community to be the result.

Community Service - Part I

What community service programs are in your town? Make a list and each week, choose one to be the focus of your prayers.

Community Service - Part II

Contact one of the community service programs in your town. Ask for ways you could help - collecting food for the food pantry, supplies for the shelter, etc. - and   Put your prayers into action.

Disciple and Transformation
