Pastor Steve Poe started the service by challenging all three campuses in Carmel, Fishers and Greater Lafayette to check their hearts.

“We have a hard time because we think it belongs to us but everything comes from God,” Pastor Poe said. “Everything belongs to God and everything is distributed by God. It’s our responsibility to be good stewards of what he gives us.”

To drive the lesson home, ushers passed out envelops to every adult at church. Inside was $10 to $50 each. The church passed out a total of $83,000.

“We want you to be good stewards of that money, pray about what God wants you to do with it and then do it,” said Pastor Poe.

The pastor told the congregation to be “mangers” by using the gifts, talents, resources and possessions to make a positive impact on our community and the world and to always pay it forward.

  1. That is nice. A church giving money instead of taking it.
    I hope those in the congregation, use it as God would want them to.

  2. God bless you for that powerful message to the nations. I’ve needy orphans in my churches,pray for my financial breakthrough.

  3. More churches should follow this example because this is more along the lines of New Testament giving. There are soooo many believers out there struggling that are continually berated about tithes but told by the leadership to go to the gov’t when they’re in need. The mega churches are filled with the poor who should be taken care of rather than squeased to give what they don’t have. The church was called to take care of one another, not rely on Uncle Sam.

  4. Now that’s scripture being fulfilled in Malachi, prove me here with says the lord of host , if I would not open up the windows of heaven and pour you out a blessing that there will not be room enough to receive.
