Now is the time to start a small group, class, series, or “special event” to help your people deal with finances. People are freaking about money right now, with good reason. But at the end of the day we serve a God who is bigger than the stock market, bigger than our 401k, and bigger than the economic bailout. What a perfect time to reinforce the biblical principals of stewardship, hard work, debt, and allow the church to be a practical aid for those who need to ask questions and get solid answers. Someone in your church works in the financial sector or knows someone who can be trusted. Offer a day for the community of free financial advising. A good way to expose your church to some hurting people.
