Step Up: Gifts

Often the idea of stewardship is only thought of in terms of financial giving – our gifts. But an easy trap to get into is that God needs our money. I don’t believe that for a second.

Step Up: Presence

The October tradition at Pacific Beach UMC is to explore our Stewardship commitments. This week we explore the importance of our presence in the ministries of the church.

Step Up: Prayer

The October tradition at Pacific Beach UMC is to explore our Stewardship commitments. We begin with prayer because there can be no Stewardship without first being in conversation with God.

Food

With the imagery of the fire of the burning bush, death in the plagues, and the dramatic wind, sky, and sea at the crossing of the Red Sea, we conclude this part of the story with the Israelite’s cry for food in the wilderness.

Death

As a human who has spent more than a minute on this earth, I have experienced death. What can we learn from loss and death and how can we be shaped by these lessons?

Fire

The story of Moses begins with fire, a divine experience that inspired Moses to grow into one of the greatest leaders of all time.

Step Toward… Your Siblings in Abraham

We continue Paul’s letter with a reminder that the gifts of the Spirit cannot be recalled or undone. Paul’s reminds us that the covenant with Abraham extends to all of Abraham’s descendants. 

Step Out… into Faith

This Sunday we begin a new short series that explores Romans 10-12 and three steps we might consider as people of faith.
