2019 STEWARDSHIP
The Stewardship and Finance team are developing the 2019 budget.  This budget is a projected need for the coming year of ministry.  Right now, all the Committees are making plans for ministry and evaluating the needs/costs.
 
Cokes Chapel maintains a tremendous local and world presence through your generosity.  Our prayerful hope is that you will be thinking of what God is calling Cokes to do and how you will participate by your prayers, presence, giving and service in 2019.
 
Then, after you discern what God is calling you to do, we ask that you return the Service Opportunities 2019 sheet, and the confidential Giving Card *(envelope provided) to the church office or to the boxes in the narthex.  Help Finance by returning these commitment cards by Sunday, October 21st
 
Your faithful commitments are doing Kingdom building for Christ!  Thank you for your generous and loving hearts.  
 
In His Service,
Your Finance, Stewardship team, & Pastor Lisa

FINAL WEEK TO REGISTER!!!
As we seek to follow God’s will as individuals and as a church, there are two important questions we should always be asking: 1) “Where have we seen God at work?” and 2) “Where is God calling us to go?”
Join your church family as we journey together in this church-wide study, sharing our stories and experiences of God as individuals and as a congregation. Following our times of sharing and listening, we will explore the question of what God might be calling us to do together.
