Parish Stewardship Council
What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is a way of life, a life of accountability and responsability acknowledging God as Creator and giver of all. Stewardship involves responsible management of our God-given resourses of time, talent and treasure. Stewards as disciples of Jesus Christ see themselves as caretakers of all God's gifts. Gratitude for these gifts is expressed in prayer, worship, offering and action by eagerly sharing our gifts out of love for God and one another.
Stewardship is based on the spiritual principals of the Old Testament and the teachings of Jesus. Stewardship is not just a program, or a method of fundraising, it is a way of thanking God for all his blessings by returning a portion of the time, talent and treasure we have each received.
Stewardship is a path to holiness. It makes us more like Christ who came not to be served, but to serve. It is a greatful awarenes that all we have and all we are comes freely from God. When we offer our lives back to God in love. He blesses that generosity a hundredfold.
