Generosity in the Eastern Synod

  • Over the past few months I’ve been travelling across the territory of the Eastern Synod offering a workshop called “Nurturing Generous Giving”.  There have been events in:

    • Wellesley, ON
    • Sudbury, ON (Hannah Lake Bible Centre)
    • Eganville, ON
    • Lunenburg, NS
    • Burlington,ON
    • New Hamburg, ON [both and2]

    Others are scheduled for 2013 in London, ON and Montreal, QC.

    To learn more about the program, or to explore the possibility of scheduling a session in your area, drop me a line at jpym@elfec.ca.

    I have been impressed by the commitment of the people who showed up at these workshops.  In total, more than 120 people gave up several hours on a Saturday to think about the future of their church, time they could have used to do other things.  In the case of the group who met at Hannah Lake Bible Centre in Sudbury, several carloads of people came from Sault Ste. Marie and Timmins.  That meant that they spent 6 hours or more on the road, in addition to the 4 hours of the workshop.
