Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
Offering a variety of studies, interactive lessons, and content for worship, the Lutheran Church - Missouri Synod’s Stewardship Ministry is a good foundation for stewardship education and fundraising within the LCMS. The church’s Bible Stewardship Principles are free and available for reference, as well as all resources for a comprehensive Faith Aflame stewardship process. The LCMS defines Christian stewardship as “…the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God’s family, the church, in managing all of life and life’s resources for God’s purposes.” This approach is reflected in all of the materials available in this web resource, including a monthly StewardCast newsletter, and lectionary recommendations for attending to stewardship throughout the year. A variety of online “Faith Aflame” e-learning modules might be of interest to those outside of the LCMS, with topics ranging from building an effective stewardship committee to integrating stewardship year-round. Consult with your own denominational body for resources specific to your tradition.
