With a grateful heart, we seek to share generously what we have received, as an act of faith and thanksgiving.
Stewardship is the word we use to express our call to serve our neighbor and faithfully apply our various gifts to the work of God in the world. Both the individual gifts we each have and the ways we apply these gifts to the needs of the world vary throughout our community.
Gifts of Service
“Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.”
Our community of faith is built on the active participation of its members. Through gifts of service, we apply our skills to the work of the church. The diversity of our abilities means that we are always seeking new ways to combine our skills and new avenues for people to apply themselves to ministry. The following resources outline some existing ways to serve (click on items to view).
Financial stewardship is about applying our gifts of income to the work of the church. Recognizing that, as individuals, the impact that many of us can have on the well-being of the community and the wider world is limited, we are empowered to combine our resources as church to sustain the material needs of our community of faith and enable the ministries of the larger church and other organizations to reach those in need around the world. The start of healthy financial stewardship is acknowledging our gifts and discovering ways to support these ministries. The following resources explore how we can apply these gifts and make a difference.
