What happens when we truly put God first in all aspects of our lives?
In a culture guided chiefly by shiny, life-promising distractions, enough seems elusive and keeps us indebted to that next source of satisfaction. What if the Giver of Life offered freedom from this downward spiralwould you take it? In First: Putting God First in Living and Giving, pastor and author Mike Slaughter conducts a four-week all-church stewardship program to help participants reassess priorities and create a culture and a lifestyle of faithful living and giving and make a meaningful contribution to the world.
Sessions include: Naming Our Idols; Money, Work, and Debt; EarnSaveGive; and Heart Giving. The Youth Study Edition help teens understand and experience generosity and includes group session materials for leaders.
