Stewardship Campaign 2020

If you plant goodness, you will harvest faithful love. Hosea 10:12

Stewardship is an invitation to shared ministry. If done faithfully through first fruits, proportional, sacrificial giving it can lead to a transformed life as it helps to clarify what we believe about money and our understanding of the responsibility God has given us as stewards of our resources and His church. This year’s campaign will look a little different due to the pandemic—canvassers will deliver your packet to you and stay in touch with you through the campaign. You will have a church-addressed, stamped envelope to return your pledge card in so that you don’t have to come to Consecration Sunday if you are not comfortable doing so. We are also starting our campaign a little early—each Sunday starting September 13, there will be a reflection and a video released of various ministries that we are spotlighting in the midst of the COVID crisis. The September issue of the Tower will also highlight our core Stewardship ministry team. During this year’s “Faith Filled Generosity” Stewardship Campaign, discern how you might partner with God and Ascension to do God’s work of kingdom building. See this week's spotlight ministry's video below:

Reality and Truth Ministry began in the Fall of 2008 as a 501c3 nonprofit.  Our objective is to help feed the homeless of Montgomery area while sharing God's word with those in need.  Church of the Ascension was made aware of the need when the organization needed assistance in feeding the homeless one day a month back in 2010.  The Outreach Committee decided to lend financial support and later began helping in the physical process of feeding the homeless.  At that time, the ministry was located on Court Street.  We have continued to share our faith and gifts over the years.  We have been with them through several location changes.  We’ve met people in empty lots, vacant buildings, and now we meet at a church off of Bell Street.


Our church family has seen smiling faces throughout the years, but we’ve also witnessed the emotional turmoil being homeless has on people in the Montgomery area.  It has always been a blessing to see how God has worked in our lives by serving those in need as well as how their lives have been impacted.  We are so fortunate to have a serving church family from the cooks giving of their time and talents in preparing a healthy meal to those in need.  Let’s keep this going.  I encourage you to volunteer.


It is a blessing to those in need, but I can promise you that you’ll be blessed in return.  A smile from a homeless child, a simple thank you, these are just a few reminders that we are to be the church.  I hope you’ll come join us.  Contact Philip Goodwyn to get plugged in.


Great King, help us to cultivate the compassionate heart and attitude you require toward children and families in need.  Remind us to regularly share our bounty with people who have much less.  In your name we ask it.  Amen.


Wesley Dunn and Philip Goodwyn
