The FBC Trustees are committed to providing resources to help you grow spiritually in the area of stewardship. You are invited to join this church-wide three week Bible Class April 30, May 7 & May 14, 11:15 am in the Worship Center.

Financial management and generosity often take center stage when the word “stewardship” is tossed out in conversation or in churches. For younger generations, stewardship might also conjure up ideas related to environmental concern, or event corporate responsibility. During these three classes, we will explore Biblical stewardship; a role that is central in each of our lives. Here are some other questions we will explore together:

  • What is Biblical Stewardship?
  • What are seven key purposes of stewardship?
  • How does financial generosity fit into the Biblical understanding of stewardship?
  • Where does stewardship and generosity figure into the life of the Church?
  • What are five central arenas of stewardship?
  • How can we become more effective stewards?


Brett Elder and Dr. Stephen Grabill have journeyed together for over 20 years developing resources to help the Church embrace the profound privilege and calling of stewardship. Born out of significant teaching, training, and equipping throughout the developing world (Brett) and scholarship at the intersection of Christian faith and economics (Stephen), they shepherded the development of the NIV Stewardship Study Bible, several books, curriculum and other published resources related to Biblical stewardship, along with a full length feature film entitled For the Life of the World.
