What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is NOT a committee, event, pledge card or time and talent form. Stewardship is a way of life. Stewardship is what you do and who you are!
The goal of the stewardship ministry is to help God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of the time, talents, and finances God has entrusted to them.
Everything we have belongs to God. The stewardship ministry is dedicated to helping God’s people celebrate the honor and privilege of being a steward of God – a manager of God’s possessions. Stewardship encompasses many aspects, such as:
The giver’s need to give, not the church’s need to receive
Connecting God’s people to God and each other through discussion and sharing
Giving of one’s time, talents and finances as an act of worship
Refocusing our question of “What do I need to give back to God?” to “What do I need to keep from the many blessings God has entrusted to me?”
Asking the question, “How does this activity, thought or action help the team accomplish its goal of helping God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus?”
