    Christian Stewardship live conversation with Rev. Bill Gottschalk-Fielding and Rev. Susan Ranous

    April 9, 2020 / By UNY Communications

    We believe in a God of abundance, not scarcity.  But how do we translate this belief into effective stewardship practices in a time of pandemic, social distancing, and economic insecurity? 

    On Tuesday April 14 at 2 p.m. and Thursday April 16 at 7 p.m., the Rev. Bill Gottschalk Fielding, Upper New York (UNY) Director of Connectional Ministries and Assistant to the Bishop, and the Rev. Susan Ranous, Chair of the Conference Council on Finance and Administration, will be hosting a conversation, entitled, “Christian Stewardship in Uncertain Times.”

    The conversations will take place via Zoom videoconferencing.

    Rev. Gottschalk-Fielding and Rev. Ranous will take your questions and offer encouragement, strategies, and tools to help your church navigate these challenging financial waters.   

    On Monday April 13, an invitation will be sent to join the April 14 conversation.

    On Wednesday April 15, and invitation will be sent to join the April 16 conversation.

    Until then, we wish you a wonderful Easter weekend.
