Committed to Christ: Six Steps to a Generous Life is a six-week stewardship program that presents giving as a lifelong journey in Christian discipleship.
40 Devotions for a Generous Life is a devotional companion for program participants. Each of the forty devotions includes Scripture, a brief story or meditation, and a prayer. The devotions, organized to support the program structure, start with the all-important commitment to Christ, then move on to explore six steps to a generous life:
- Bible Reading
- Financial Giving
With each step, through worship, sermons, and small group activities, the congregation is asked to assess prayerfully their own level of commitment and to consider increasing that commitment by one step.
Equal emphasis is placed on each of the six steps, clearly communicating that this program is not simply about money, but rather cultivating a thankful heart that will lead us to giving more than we can ever imagine.
