// PRAY AND WORSHIP.

Join with us and individuals all over South Florida on the first Wednesday every month to pray and worship around a focal theme. This month’s theme: gratitude.

As we come off the Thanksgiving holiday, we hope you were able to take some time to reflect on what you’re thankful for. Our team at NCF South Florida, including Church United, Lifework, Mission Increase and Convene, are thankful for the community of generous individuals we have the pleasure of serving. YOU are the reason we do what we do! We are so moved by the work God is doing in you and in our South Florida community as a whole. 

As we enter into the advent season, it’s important to reflect on what we are grateful for, otherwise, it’s all too easy to get caught up in the hurry of the holiday season and forget what we truly are celebrating – the greatest gift we could receive.

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.” —James 1:17 NIV

// INVEST.

When you donate appreciated stocks or mutual funds, what you save on taxes can mean more for ministry, and you can claim the value of the donation as a charitable deduction for 2021. If your stocks have appreciated, donating them is a great way to increase your support for the causes close to your heart.

// EQUIP.

This month, we’re excited to host our first Lifework Journey social – a time for our Lifework Journey subscribers to continue to build relationship in an informal setting. Want to get in on this faith and work community? Learn more about Lifework Journey and consider subscribing, or joining as a guest for one session.

// UNITE.

You’re invited to Church United’s Night of Worship and Celebration on Dec. 1st at at 6:30 PM at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale. Church United South Florida will gather together to celebrate what God has done through the unified church in our area. It’s a night filled with worship, stories of God’s faithfulness, and a chance to hear the vision of Church United and the role YOU play in seeing it fulfilled.

// PONDER.

Faithful stewards are cultivated – not born with a special gift. Sometimes, good stewardship develops over years of steady, committed giving. Other times, it’s learned through hardship, through learning to trust God when it’s not easy. Often if comes after a number of failures and obstacles have been overcome. The latter was what happened with Joseph. God remained with him through a succession of trials because he had an extraordinary plan for Joseph’s life. He has one for yours too. Keep reading.
