Be Rich - Pastor Steve Brown
We are to witness to the resurrection of Jesus by being rich in doing the good work of being extravagantly generous and serving those in need. In this way we follow the example of Jesus and become the shining stars that point people to Jesus.
We hope you will participate in the Be Rich campaign beyond what you would expect by giving an extravagant donation, serving at least one hour in one of our three partner organizations, and donating in-kind gifts.

Be Rich: Side Effects - Pastor Steve Brown
There are unintended and destructive side effects that we may experience since we are rich. These side effects can build up to where we eventually put our trust and hope in our wealth more than in God. One way to lessen the side effects is to be generous and serve others in response to the riches we have been given by God.
After this sermon, we hope that you will be aware of how rich you are and the potential side effects of this. To not be arrogant because you are rich or put your help in wealth. To put your hope ultimately in God. And be rich in the good deeds of generosity and serving those in need.

Be Rich: Pre-Decide - Pastor Steve Brown
The way to make sure that you hope does not migrate from God to your wealth is to pre-decide to be rich in giving a generous percentage of your income to unleash God’s love to meet the hopes and hurts of others.
After hearing this sermon, we hope you will have a generosity planning session where you will prayerfully pre-decide what generous percentage of your income you will give to unleash God’s love to meet the hopes and hurts of others.

Be Rich Toward God - Pastor Steve Brown
One way to be rich towards God is to unleash God’s love through sacrificial acts of generosity and compassion. This lessens our grip on our wealth and its grip on us, and makes an eternal difference in our lives and the lives of others.
After hearing this sermon, we hope you will extend your participation in the Be Rich campaign beyond what you would expect by continuing to financially donate, serving in one of our partner organizations, and donating in-kind gifts.
