Congregational Resource Guide
Finding the right resources for your congregation
The Evangelical Covenant Church takes a comprehensive approach to stewardship, providing resources on church finances, an eight-session bible study, and a variety of resources themed around creation care. Most distinctive, however, are the ECC’s Whole Life Stewardship materials, which can be downloaded and implemented in a congregational setting. The Stewardship Starter Kit includes downloadable letters, committee job descriptions, articles, bulletin inserts, and pledge materials. The related “Loving and Giving” brochure addresses why, how, what, and where people of faith can give. Finally, a series of “Growing Deeper” resources make stewardship in every area of life accessible for small group discussion or for use in worship. These downloadable materials address a variety of practices that touch on generosity and turn our attention to responsible stewardship for all that belongs to God. While produced by the ECC, these resources are broadly applicable. Consult with your own denominational body for resources specific to your tradition.
