     Advent of Generosity: Inviting giving and participation during Advent and Christmas with Vicki Nelson, Stewardship Support

Vicki Nelson Stewardship Animator Chinook Winds Region

December tends to be a very busy month in the life of the church. It is also a busy month for individuals—there is extra baking, shopping for family and friends, Christmas parties, and more. Most charities save their biggest appeals for this “giving season”. Does your community of faith talk about generosity during Advent?  Many people want an invitation to give. This can be a time to invite generosity or deeper participation. And it’s an opportunity to tell visitors about your ministry, and invite their support.  

This 60-minute session will talk about different ways that church leaders can bring conversations of stewardship into Advent, Christmas Eve, and beyond. Let’s help make this Advent the beginning of a church year full of deeper generosity. Register for Zoom link HERE. This session will also be recorded and available to you afterwards
