PRAIRIE RIVERS NOTES
Recently, I had a delightful luncheon with Rev. Roger Grimmett, my District Superintendent. We visited about a number of things, including how to familiarize District Superintendents and United Methodist pastors with the “Effective Stewardship” program. Roger suggested I write a short note that he could include on the District’s website and which he could send via e-mail to pastors in the District.
As you know, churches everywhere continue to have financial difficulties. Most United Methodist congregations are also struggling to pay their apportionments. Based our experience in serving churches for over 20 years, my associates and I know that the “Effective Stewardship”
program can solve these problems and more as it trains people to be better stewards of what God has entrusted to them.
That’s why I’m writing to ask if you would consider including the note below on your District’s website and sending it via e-mail to your pastors.
Please feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail if you have any questions about this request or the “Effective Stewardship” program.
Also please visit our web site if you’d like to receive a free set of sample materials.
In the meantime, thanks for considering this request in the connectional spirit with which it is sent. I am confident that this program can both strengthen your ministry as District Superintendent and benefit the churches you serve.
