Program Overview

We all want to be generous, but most of us find this hard to accomplish. Demands on our time and money make scarcity a real problem. Marketing creates a compulsion to buy things that are new or the latest version of the old. Instead of enjoying the freedom to bless others with the best of our lives, we feel trapped. We are held down and held back by forces that seem beyond our control.
But there is good news! Jesus offers us a way to defy gravity and break free from the culture of more. Defying Gravity is a four-week stewardship program exploring what the Bible says about how to experience a generous life. Here are the topics we’ll be discussing:

Week 1
Discovering Gravity
(Matthew 19:16-26)

Week 2
Breaking Free
(Luke 15:11-32)

Week 3
Tethered to God
(Matthew 6:21)

Week 4
When We Get It Right
(Luke 16:10-13)

The key to all of it-and the key, I believe, to Christian discipleship-is generosity. When we follow Jesus, we develop a spirit of generosity that makes us eager to give. It’s not about should or ought to. It’s about want to. It’s about overflowing with love and the desire to bless others as Jesus blesses us.
