Below you will find some of the new and current resources to help guide, educate, and support congregations and their leaders in the ministry that is stewardship.
“Where Your Heart Is” - ELCA Stewardship Newsletter
Cohort-based online learning with “Cultivating Generous Congregations” (begins April 25, 2023)
- How do we, as communities of faith, change our thinking on stewardship and generosity to meet the challenges of the moment? In partnership with the Lake Institute on Faith & Giving, the ELCA is offering congregations the opportunity to reexamine their stewardship thinking and imagine ways to act on their findings in their communities.
- To learn more, please set aside 4 minutes to watch Cultivating Generous Congregations (CGC): Info and Invite to participate.
- Over six weeks, "Cultivating Generous Congregations" will offer virtual cohort sessions where congregational leaders will discuss, dissect and collaborate on how generosity can work within their contexts. The sessions cost $550 per congregation, plus workbooks, and qualify for Thrivent Action Grants.
- If interested, please contact the synod’s Director for Evangelical Mission, Rev. Emily Carson, and she will walk you through the registration process.
