Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity


Today, we will begin a church-wide study and worship emphasis called Enough: Discovering Joy Through Simplicity and Generosity. Over a period of four weeks, we will look at some of the financial challenges facing us as a nation and examine our own spending, saving, and giving habits. In addition to exploring biblical principles of financial management, we will learn ways to assess our financial situation and develop a financial plan that will allow us to experience the true joy that comes through simplicity and generosity.

At the end of the emphasis, we will have the opportunity to make personal commitments of giving for the 2020 year. We will consecrate these commitments on Sunday, October 13th in Worship.

Visit our website www.tahlequahumc.org for more information, including details about small group study opportunities during this time.
