Help your church create a culture and a lifestyle of giving.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 spiral—would 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.
To help parents educate and model generosity for their kids, First includes components for children and youth that help families explore financial decisions together. Sessions include: Naming Our Idols; Money, Work, and Debt; Earn—Save—Give; and Heart Giving. This program kit includes one each of the program components: shiny gods: finding freedom from things that distract us; Program Guide with Flash Drive; Children’s Leader Guide; Youth Study Edition; shiny gods DVD; shiny gods Leader Guide; and Devotional Book.
