Marty, The newest Giving Magazine: Abundant Joy: Overflowing Generosity is now available through the Church Store, item #1912012312. It is free but you will be asked to pay for shipping. This is the newest theme for annual campaigns. Theme materials are previewed in the center section of the magazine and are available from the Ecumenical Stewardship Center at www.stewardshipresources.org along with past themes and materials.
It's my understanding that we can get a copy of the Giving magazine free from you. Is that correct? Do we have to request it? I am with First Pres in Georgetown, Texas, and someone said that last year we got a free copy. We have ordered a copy from Stewardship Resources but would also like a second copy.
LaJaun, The 2012 Giving Magazine went to the printer late and should be available very soon. I will post here when it is available from the church store. We plan to have copies available at Stewardship Kaleidoscope in Charlotte. Also if anyone interested would like to email me my office can provide you with one or several copies as soon as they are available. Thank you for the inquiry!
Greetings, Where can I find the 2012 Giving Magazine? I only see the 2011 online. I have seen the magazine on another site, but in the past we have been able to receive this magazine at no cost. Has this changed?
Byron I appologize for not responding to your concerns much earlier. I hope the Giving Magazine was helpful in providing a theme and related materials for your stewardship program. I beleive we have added several things to our website since your post which are intended to be helpful and I hope are responsive to your concerns. I encourage you to download the Stewardship Manual, found on the Stewardship Education page for a guide to year round stewardship and a review of the types of annual campaigns. There is also a stewardship bibliography with books and websites centered on stewardship in general and faith and money in particular. We have a monthy electronic newsletter now, Stewardship Ministry, which is a place to share resources and best practices. I encourage you and your wife's team to sign up. Finally, please let us know what we are missing and what would be helpful to you and your congregation.
