Hey UCC!

Financial Stewardship Seminar NOV 10th

7 Nov

It’s time to put our financial house in order. Let’s get together this
coming Saturday November 10th for a full on financial stewardship seminar
to discuss the topic Jesus talked most about: MONEY! Did you know that
your attitudes toward money and the way you deal with money reflect who
you really are? Join this seminar and find out more about yourself.

Time: Saturday NOV 19th 10.00 – 15.00
Place: the Leppävaara Youth Center, 2nd floor.

There will be a one hour lunch break at around 12 o’clock. Please bring
your own lunch or be prepared to go out for lunch in one the nearby
restaurants. Coffee and tea will be served.

If you need babysitting, please inform us early enough so we can arrange
more babysitters if needed.

A wide variety of subjects will be covered varying from more theoretical
topics like poverty and wealth to more practical issues like giving,
tithing, taking loans, saving, and tips for godly shopping. Great emphasis
will be laid on character issues relating to our personal finances, such
as generosity, contentment, diligence, and wisdom. What we most need in
getting our finances in order is often not the practical knowledge of the
what’s and how’s, but a change of heart. It is therefore my prayer that
the Lord will work something new in our hearts through this seminar.

Rob Curtis will be doing a session on “How to make a budget”, providing us
with practical tools for godly money management and financial planning.

In order to make this seminar most relevant to you, we have scheduled in
plenty of time for interaction through discussion in groups after every

Please, e-mail me, pastor Dirk-Jan (dirk-jane(at), if you’re coming. I’m looking forward to a very
rewarding day together dealing with money matters that concern us every
day and greatly affect our fruitfulness in God’s kingdom.
