Faithful, Hopeful, Loving Essentials - Volume 22

Faithful, Hopeful, Loving Essentials is an easy-to-use, four-week stewardship emphasis for churches of any size and any worship situation. Essentials provides a basic, easy-to-share emphasis that may be helpful for churches who are providing a variety of worship experiences—or no worship experience—or who want to offer a stewardship emphasis in a short time frame with limited personnel and preparation time. This digital resource provides editable, reproducible materials applicable for print and digital communications for emphasis preparation, invitation, and follow-up, including devotionals, ways to give, commitment forms, thank you letters, and more.


Giving Magazine was a premier stewardship resource published by the Ecumenical Stewardship Center (ESC) from 1999 until 2020. The magazine served Christian faith communities throughout North America, providing thoughtful, practical, and inspirational content on faith and giving from thought leaders and practitioners alike. Giving was published annually from 1999 until 2018 (volumes 1-20), and then quarterly in 2019 and 2020 (volumes 21-28) in digital form only. In 2021 ESC closed its doors and committed its archives to the care of Lake Institute on Faith & Giving. For further information on ESC or its archives, please contact us at
