Stewardship

Our stewardship practice should embrace all aspects of our life, family, church, and community. It is who we are, it is how we live our faith.

Stewardship Prayer

Good and Gracious God,
We are grateful for the way that you not only
communicate your love completely
within relationship as Trinity, but also to us indiscriminately as
Grace in the beauty of nature, people and our own souls. 
In our gratitude, help us to pray, individually
and within the Christian community. 
Move us to live good moral lives which give you greater glory. 
Inspire us to always grow in faith. 
Prompt us to serve our faith community well with the
gifts and talets planted within us. 
Lastly, inspire us to generously share our financial resourses with the
church community so that Your work can flourish and endure. 
We pledge to you: Our energy, effort and resources in helping people
experience the message, power and presence of Jesus Christ. 
We ask all of this in the name of Jesus Christ and
the power of the Holy Spirit. 
Amen.

What is Stewardship?

  • Stewardship is having the wisdom to understand that everything we have is a gift from God of which we are to be the absolute best caretakers.

  • Stewardship is a way of life, honoring God in everything we do with all His gifts. Living life God-centered rather than sel-centered-thinking of Him before our own wants.

  • Stewardship is having the courage to give back out of love, a portion of every gift that has been entrusted to us by God.

  • Stewardship is living life with the understanding that someday God will ask each and everyone of us what we did with all of His varied gifts.

  • Stewardship is a life long faith journey that brings us ever closer to Jesus Christ: following the path He so perfectly laid out for us through His life example.

  • Stewardship is life altering and its rewards last an eternity.
