MAKING OFFERING AN ACT OF WORSHIP IN A DIGITAL WORLD
With online worship, have you found yourself unsure of how to make the offering time meaningful and worshipful? If so, on September 17th at 1pm please join The Missouri United Methodist Foundation in a free webinar to hear guest Joel Mikell from Horizons Stewardship offer practical, relevant ideas of how to incorporate meaningful offering experiences in both online and in-person worship.
Joel has spent 25 years as the Pastor of Worship and Music in the local church in addition to 20 years in the work of stewardship and generosity. What he will share can impact both the spiritual and financial growth of your church while cultivating a culture of ongoing generosity. We encourage pastors as well as worship leaders, finance committee chairs, finance staff, and worship and stewardship committees to attend.
