In a Festive Meal Commitment Program, as many as possible of the faith community gather

  • to enjoy a festive celebration of their spiritual life and ministry together,
  • to hear an inspirational speaker witness to his/her stewardship journey,
  • to foster a sense of thankfulness for God’s blessings, and
  • to respond in thanksgiving with financial pledges for the support of God’s work in the world through the congregation.

As outlined, the format includes leadership from an ongoing Stewardship Ministry Team - not just a single purpose task team. And, for maximum effectiveness, the program must include the Education Training Event for those who are recruited to serve as Table Hosts and/or Discussion Leaders.  The Education Training Event should follow, or be similar to, one of those found in this workbook or in A Manual For Stewardship Development Programs in the Congregation and should be facilitated by a trained facilitator/presenter.

The workbook includes:

  • An Overview describing the Festive Meal concept and assistance estimating the costs to be incurred.
  • An Action Plan outline.
  • A Training Event Outline to provide guidance on preparing your volunteers.
  • Job descriptions for the leadership and other volunteer positions to help you delegate responsibility effectively.
  • A master planning calendar enables you to set target completion dates for each step of the program.
  • A description of program phases summarizes critical action steps and suggests who does them.
