The Generosity Project – Our Table is Ready
The Rocky Mountain Synod has received an ELCA grant to take the lead in the work and ministry of stewardship through the Generosity Project – Our Table Is Ready.
Rocky Mountain Synod congregations are partnering with sister congregations and leaders to make this a vibrant and effective ministry. Of the 18 ELCA grants, the unique approach of the Rocky Mountain Synod focuses on giving and generosity as a faith practice of households.
We have great hope that the Generosity Project will:
- Grow a spirit of joyful generosity that strengthens giving from households to local congregations, to the Rocky Mountain Synod and the broader ministries of the ELCA.
- Grow faithful stewards in our homes and congregations through Bible study, prayer, cross-generational conversation and effective household faith practices.

Given the focus on households in all configurations, those teams are including teens and pre-teens, adults and young adults, wise elders, along with youth and stewardship leaders. In turn, these teams are asked to replicate this experience in their own congregation, thereby encouraging growth in joyful generosity for congregational, synodical and churchwide ministries.
