Friday session for Ministers: Preaching and Teaching Stewardship 

Cultivating Abundance: Finding our Way to Enough

Guest speaker: Reverend Lee Hull-Moses

It feels like money is tight everywhere — in our personal budget, and in the offering plate. Can we ask our congregations to give more when we’re feeling so stretched ourselves? Or maybe, if we’re honest, we know that we’re pretty lucky: we’ve got food to eat and clothes to wear and a safe place to live. But all around us, the culture tells us we need more. Where’s the line between not enough and too much? Can we trust in the good news of God’s abundance and find our way to enough?

Join us as we explore ways to cultivate a mindset of abundance in ourselves, our families, our congregations, and our communities.


Saturday session for Ministers and Church Leaders: Church Stewardship

21st-Century Stewardship: Technological advances in congregational stewardship

Guest Speaker: Adam Copeland, Director of Center for Stewardship at Luther Seminary

After a brief introduction to stewardship, this session will consider new paradigms of stewardship and lean into developing practices. It will highlight recent stewardship innovations and consider possible next steps in congregational stewardship, digital giving, and next generation fundraising.

Join us as we learn about Crowdfunding, Text Giving, and Digital Fundraising, Oh My!

Scripture is filled with stories of people experiencing God in the beauty and power of Creation. For thousands of years, God’s people have looked at the world around them to learn about God’s presence in their life. Camps are designed to bring children and youth into the beauty of creation and into the power of community. These intentional events are divided by age, and often by special focus.

Camps are run by volunteer directors and counselors from our local congregations. This is truly a shared ministry. All volunteers are screened and receive a background check. Support staff such as life guards, first aid, and cooks are hired to help our volunteers provide a wonderful experience in a safe environment.
