THE STB 20 Euro Challenge – PLEASE help your church this Summer.
What’s it for?
To have some fun and to enable each one of us to raise some money for church this summer.
How does it work?
Based on the Parable of the Talents (see below) you collect a 20 Euro note on Sunday 26th June or 3rd July at the 10.30 service. (On loan to you from STB.)
Then, YOU do something creative with it, to make this E20 ‘seed’ money ‘grow’ and bear fruit:
During July, August and September: involve your friends, colleagues, neighbours, family, wherever you are (people you know outside church).
Early October you bring back all the money you have made,
and we ‘harvest’ it to help STB.
The Euro20 Summer Challenge is based on the Parable of the Talents from Matthew 25:14-30.
In this well known Bible story, the master and owner of a property is going to be away for some time. So, he entrusts some money to each of his workers. (The coins he gives them are called ‘talents’) During the time he is absent, the workers use the money entrusted to them to make more money. So, when the master returns he is pleased with their efforts, and says: ‘enter into the joy of your master’ and “well done’. That is save for one, who simply buried his coin, and did nothing to make it bear fruit for the master.
In the Euro20 challenge, we are similarly entrusted with money from our church, and asked, over a three month period (whether at home or on holiday), to make it grow – in the service of our heavenly Lord and master, and saviour Jesus Christ!
Please join in, be creative and help your church!
