A six-week stewardship program that presents giving as a lifelong journey in Christian discipleship

Committed to Christ: Six Steps to a Generous Life is a six-week stewardship program that presents giving as a lifelong journey in Christian discipleship.

This Small Group Leader Guide contains everything a leader needs to organize and run a small group or Sunday school class in support of the program, including discussion questions, activities, and flexible session lengths and formats.

After an introductory Sunday stressing the importance of commitment to Christ, the next six weeks are spent exploring six steps to a generous life:

Prayer
Bible Reading
Worship
Witness
Financial Giving
Service

With each step, participants are asked to assess prayerfully their own level of commitment and to consider increasing that commitment by one step.

Equal emphasis is placed on each of the six steps, clearly communicating that this program is not simply about money, but rather cultivating a thankful heart that will lead us to giving more than we can ever imagine.

“For a program that focuses on the totality of stewardship, there is none better.”
-Jim Polk, Senior Pastor, El Dorado First United Methodist Church, El Dorado AR
