Dear friends,

For the past fifteen years, I have served as Chapelwood’s Business Manager, overseeing the church’s finances, budgets, buildings, equipment, and assets.  From this vantage point, I am blessed to see how the many stewards of the church work together to support our ministries.  As members, each of us has promised to support Chapelwood through our prayers, presence, gifts, service, and witness.  And I am privileged to see how over time our people grow in these acts of stewardship.

Young couples have children and begin to serve in Children’s Ministry. Their giving grows over the years as their income grows, and their understanding of generosity grows. Their witness becomes more powerful as they gain more experience in a life of service to Christ.  They become more present as they find opportunities to serve, share, and learn. Others of us have been on the journey for many years, experiencing the ebbs and flows of life:  celebrations, sorrows, praises, prayers, and a community where we can be there for each other as we follow Jesus.

Now, as we turn the page on 2022, it is natural to self-examine where we are in our walk with Jesus and in our stewardship of what has been entrusted to us.  Friends, I ask you to join me prayerful consideration, to discern where you have been on your journey and how you will be led in 2023. 

In Christ,

Bob Lindsey
Business Manager
