/ Ministries / Stewardship

Stewardship is:

  • Our response to God’s unfailing love and gratitude for His many blessings brought to our lives
  • A commitment to freely offer our time, talent, and material resources in support and in participation with Christ in His love for us and our neighbors.

How can I support the ministry of the Church?

  • Support and share Christ’s Gospel message of salvation to the world.
  • Provide the time, talent, and treasure necessary to promote the goals of our parish: 1) To equip its members for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the Body of Christ until
  • we all reach the unity in the faith (Ephesians 4:12-13) and 2) that together we grow in the grace and knowledge of our lord and Savior Jesus Christ (2 Peter 3:18).
  • Support and participate in ministries and service to others.

What should I consider when making a Stewardship Pledge?

  • Your Stewardship is vital and important to our Church
  • Prayerfully consider how God is creator of everything and all gifts come from Him
  • Prayerfully consider how your personal expenses compare with your Stewardship pledge
  • Contemplate how giving your time, talent, and services would benefit the ministry of the Church
  • Remember God’s grace and love for us.
