Stewardship

bibleblk.gif (5722 bytes)

Stewardship is based on the spiritual principles of the Old testament and the teachings of Jesus.  Stewardship involves the intentional, planned, and proportionate giving of time, talent, and treasure.  Stewardship addresses both parishioners as well as the parish.

Each of us has the opportunity and responsibility to use our abilities to build up the church, the body of Christ, and to serve others in the community.  Listed below are many opportunities to enhance your life and the lives of others.  Acknowledge the gifts and talents you possess.  Make a decision to commit your gifts and talents to serving God and His people.

Please call the contact people for the ministries in which you would like to share your time and talent or complete a Time and Talent Pledge Sheet on the Volunteer page!
