ALL IN: Our Promise, Our Stewardship Focus
Being “all in” means that we’re committed to a purpose, invested in a promise — we’re jumping in with both feet. When each of us joins the church, we vow to be “all in” through our prayers, presence, gifts, service and witness; we promise to say yes to God’s call again and again. Our vow is, in fact, a response to God’s promise to us.
Scripture tells us that God “does not grow weary” but is at work non-stop to make true on God’s promise to redeem and transform the world. Jesus was “all in” to complete God’s mission all the way to the cross, and God works tirelessly, at all times and in all places. In 1 Corinthians 15, we read that the God of resurrection is at work in Christ and is conducting the church toward a great crescendo “so that God may be all in all.”
Our stewardship focus, ALL IN: Our Promise, is an invitation for God’s people called McFarlin to embrace and celebrate God’s unreserved and energetic promise of grace for us and the world. When we live “all in,” we join purposes with God, and together we fulfill our promise of Changing Lives That Change the World.
