Stewardship 2023 This year has been a transitional one for our church family, in part as we emerged from extended isolation and began worshiping in-person and rebuilding community during the third year of the pandemic, and also as we experienced additional changes in pastoral leadership. Both have served as reminders that change is constant. A transitional season also creates opportunities for each of us to influence positive and meaningful change.
You will be hearing more from the Stewardship Committee in the coming weeks and materials and pledge cards will be sent out in November culminating with Pledge Commitment Sunday on November 20.
We ask that you prayerfully consider how you can support your church financially in the coming year.
It's never too late to return a pledge!
Pledge Cards may be mailed in or dropped off, or you can make your pledge online. You may contact Michelle Fortin, our Financial Administrator directly via phone (814-238-2422) or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about your pledge or if you would like to verbally share the amount of your pledge.
Be a good steward ... share your time, talent, and treasure. "Like good stewards of the manifold grace of God, serve one another with whatever gift each of you has received."
1 Peter 4:10
What is a Steward
?In the Christian sense, a steward is the manager of the affairs of God on earth. God has made each of us a steward and given us abilities and talents that are unique. We should use these abilities and talent to serve God in how we respect and care for ourselves, each other and the world.
A Christian steward serves God out of love and gratitude for these gifts. We share our time, talents and property, knowing that it’s not how much we have but what we do with what we have that is important.
Stewardship of Time – whatever time we have is a gift from God and we must use wisely in every activity. We must budget our time so that we are able to help fulfill God’s plan
Stewardship of Talents – God gives all people potential talents – each of us can share in God’s plan in our own way
Stewardship of Relationships – Our relationships with others are a gift from God: at home, at work and in Church
Stewardship of the Gospel – As Christian stewards, we are called to receive the Gospel, to share the Gospel and to reflect the Gospel in our everyday lives
Stewardship of Property – we know that whatever we have is a gift from God. In appreciation, we choose to share a financial portion of these gifts
We are called to give generously and regularly of time, talents and our possessions.
"Stewardship is Not Just About Giving Money ... It's About Giving Everything"
