Stewardship Bible Study

Enough: Discovering Joy through Simplicity and Generosity

Tuesday nights October 26th – November 16th

Led by Rev. Rachel & Rev. Kirkland

Money has great power in our lives. Used wisely, it is one key to accomplishing our goals, providing for our needs, and fulfilling our life purpose. In recent years, many of us ignored the wisdom of the past when it came to managing and spending our money. Credit card debt soared, savings rates plummeted, and our home equity became something to be tapped into and spent rather than a source of security in retirement. We felt an insatiable desire for more. And we found ourselves spending tomorrow’s money today in order to have what we hoped would satisfy.

The result of all of this was not greater happiness and satisfaction, but greater stress and anxiety. “Enough” is an invitation to rediscover the Bible’s wisdom when it comes to prudent financial practices,  experiencing contentment, overcoming fear, and discovering joy through simplicity and generosity. This study could change your life, by changing your relationship with money.

This study, written by Rev. Adam Hamilton, pastor of the United Methodist Church of the Resurrection includes a video component, Bible study and discussion. Chapters include: Faith in the Midst of Financial Crisis, When Dreams Become Nightmares, Wisdom and Finance, Cultivating Contentment, Defined By Generosity.

Feel free to invite a friend to join you—these Bible study groups are open to all adults! To sign up contact Rev. Rachel rcornwell@silverspringumcp.org.
