Y-R-S – Year Round Stewardship – Love

The Stewardship Committee is embarking on a program in 2018 that we’re calling “Year-Round Stewardship,” or Y-R-S, for short.

Each month (or pair of months in some cases) we will highlight a different theme and an associated aspect of stewardship in various channels across the congregation.

For example, in February, the Valentine’s Day month, we’re going to focus on “Love” as in “Love Thy Neighbor.”  We’ll showcase local benevolence ministries such as FISH and Code Purple (Church Office 302-368-0064), the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center (https://www.hilltoplnc.org/), Lutheran Campus Ministry (https://sites.udel.edu/lutheran-campus-ministry/), and Hope Dining Room (https://www.facebook.com/hopediningroom/) to name a few, and ask you, the congregation, to consider lending a hand to something that occurs right here in our community.

Other monthly themes include, but are not limited to, Care of Creation, Education, Volunteering (giving back), and Sharing our Bounty. Over the course of the year, we will see information about these themes in both the monthly and weekly Epistle as well as our weekly Email Blast, and Facebook page.  You may even see/hear a reference in worship!  Ya never know, so keep an eye/ear out.

 

 

Thanksgiving Baskets abound!

THANK YOU(!) for all of your contributions to the Hilltop Lutheran Neighborhood Center Thanksgiving Baskets last Sunday. We contributed 83 turkeys and 49 complete baskets. Combined with other similar donations from area Lutheran Churches, over 300 families in the Hilltop area of Wilmington had a full table this Thanksgiving.  Thank you.

Super Bowl Sunday tallies

“Souper” Bowl Sunday Tally

The big winner of “Souper” Bowl Sunday is the Empowerment Center!  A total of $381.92 was donated through “Souper Bowl” contributions!   The bad news:  There are a lot of disappointed Falcons fans.  The vote was $240.92 for the Falcons, $76 for the Patriots, and $65 for the “I don’t really care who wins” crowd.  Many thanks to everyone who made this fund raiser and service project a huge success!

Sub Sale Spectacular Tally

Thank you very much, muchas gracias, merci, grazie, and danke to all of you for your help in making the sub sale the success that it was this year! We had sales last week totaling $757, which is pretty much 100% profit! We sold 92 subs and donated 4 to the Emmaus House.  Proceeds will go into our Youth Fund for the National Retreat in Houston in 2018.
