Our stewardship focus is based on 1 Peter 2:4a, 5a, “The Lord Jesus is the living stone. You also are like living stones . . . ”
We are living stones. Living a life guided by faith has a ripple effect in our lives, the greater community, and the world. The impact of the ripple can be felt in waves as it grows and expands, touching people’s lives. The ripple continues when those lives are inspired to love their neighbor and live a life of generosity. This ripple effect of faith is needed now more than ever to counteract the ripple effect of fear, scarcity, and the loss of hope that is so prevalent in our world.
This year has been filled with challenges. Next year will hold a new set of challenges. Together, with God’s strength, guidance, and your financial gifts, we will creatively meet the challenges before us. You have the power to change our world through your ripple effect of faith.

Harvest Fund Endowment
This endowment fund provides additional resources to assist the congregation in its ministry and mission. The principal of the Fund remains intact, and only the interest is spent each year. Therefore, a contribution to the Harvest Fund is a gift that will keep on giving every year to special ministries of Augustana.
