Stewardship 2023: INSPIRE
Our church is growing because we are focused on inspiring one another to live and love like Jesus. We love with a spirit of inclusion, welcoming everyone with open hearts – no exceptions. We are a warm-hearted community that values compassionate generosity.
In May, we cast a bold vision with several big goals over the next five years. We are committed to reaching 750 new people, building a discipleship pathway to form people in faith, further developing engaging and fun environments for children and youth where they experience the love of Jesus, forming 60 Life Groups, performing 25,000 Acts of Compassion, and moving toward giving $ 250,000 annually to outreach partners in our community that serve people in need.
We are stewards of extraordinarily good news and unprecedented opportunity. The decisions we make today will determine the stories we tell tomorrow. Our 2023 stewardship emphasis, ‘INSPIRE’ highlights our Core Values. Your pledges and offerings support our daily, ongoing ministries for the 2022 calendar/fiscal year.

A word from JENNIFER WEBER, Stewardship Ministry Team member:
“My husband, Mark, and I joined Harvard Avenue Christian Church last year, and we have been so happy with the decision to be part of such an open, welcoming, and generous community. One of the things I learned working with young children is how their development grows over time from self to others. They are first primarily concerned with the needs of self, then family, next friends, and finally their community and the world; each step necessary before the next one can be taken. It seems a community of believers grows much the same way – a place for me to be cared for, to a place where I can love and care for the people around me, to caring for my community at large. Harvard Avenue’s vision to form 60 new Life Groups to care for each other, develop new environments where our children and youth can experience the love of Jesus, and then to reach out to share our lives and love with our community in need, all seems to support living and loving like Jesus- from self to community. That vision requires the care and nurture of financial support, as well.
Please support our church in 2023 and if you’re already giving financially, please consider growing your support by 10%. When Mark and I prayerfully sign and return our Commitment Card by November 20, we’ll be thinking how we’ve benefitted from the love and light shared with us at Harvard Avenue Christian Church. We will also be thinking of how others might benefit, too.”
