What is Stewardship?
Stewardship is more than the giving of money in order to meet a church’s budget for the year. Stewardship is a theological statement of belief. It is a way of life. It comes from believing we are beloved children of God who give in order to participate in God’s Kingdom being lived here and now.
A practice of pledging models the importance of our spiritual lives and our commitment to a growing relationship with God and the church, especially to children. As a spiritual exercise, pledging allows us to reflect on the gifts God has given so that we all may use those gifts for the purpose of ministry, mission, faith formation, Christian fellowship, and worship of the church.
Stewardship season is here as our church family discerns God’s call to give Beyond Sunday Morning in 2020! This past Sunday, Julie Field reminded us about how our time, talents, and treasures help share Christ’s love Beyond Sunday Morning. She shared how important it is to be active in this community of faith, a community where we live out our spiritual calling by supporting and nurturing one another. We do that by coming together in fellowship, prayer, and worship. We do that by offering our time, talents, and treasures at the foot of God’s T, the cross.
As stewardship season continues, please think about the ways you are called to serve, through the giving of your time and talents, Beyond Sunday Morning in 2020. Stewardship Sunday is this Sunday, November 10th. Stewardship packets have been mailed so that our church family may prayerfully consider how God is calling each of us to give Beyond Sunday Morning. Please contact the church office if you have not received your packet.
