Karen Methot

Who: Stewardship and Finance Committees, Church Council members, lay leaders, pastors - multiple people from a church encouraged to participate!
What: A Book Club for any church leader who wants to hone their thinking and skills about the work of stewardship and fundraising in the church 

When: Monday, June 8, 22, and July 6, at 7 p.m. (to start)

Where: The comfort of your own home via Zoom

Why: To learn about and discuss with colleagues recent thinking and best practices in the areas of stewardship and fundraising with the goal of improving and developing stewardship in your church.

Join us! Our first book will be Not Your Parents' Offering Plate: A New Vision for Financial Stewardship, by J. Clif Christopher - a book that has become a classic, foundational text for the practice of creating stewardship campaigns and establishing a culture of stewardship in congregations. 

Discussions will be facilitated by SNEUCC staff Rev. Mary Nelson, Regional Minister for South Central Connecticut, and David Cleaver-Bartholomew, Transitional ACM for Stewardship and Financial Development.  In preparation for the June 8th session, Mary and David request that, if possible, people read through p. 31 and review the “Questions To Ask” at the end of each chapter. 

Participants are encouraged to purchase the book from which supports local bookstores and has a history of excellent customer service.

Subsequent books and dates will be shared as the group continues, and we’re happy to entertain suggestions.
