It’s the Little Things

Our lives are made up of small, daily decisions that eventually shape our character. Jesus highlights this principle in Luke 16:10, “Whoever is faithful in little things will be faithful in large ones.” 

The community of St. Mark is invited to join what God is doing in the world through small monthly experiments that lead to a lifestyle of faithful stewardship. These small experiments are designed to encourage participants to participate in stewardship in a holistic way.

We are roughly half way through our yearly Stewardship Experiments and we couldn’t be more excited to hear your reflections. Below you will find a recap of the experiments and a chance to fill in your thoughts and experiences for each one so far.

April Experiment

Care for creation this month – pick up trash, plant some flowers or even a tree!

Sin is like yeast. It grows. It’s something small that can affect our relationship with God and others. Confess and pray to God.

February Experiment

“Every $100”. This concept breaks down our budget into the categories that make up the purpose of St. Mark’s ministry. Seeing how much goes to each category that makes up the general fund can help us as we learn more about our giving.
