Overview of Program
Stewardship is one way of saying “thank you” to God while supporting the ministries of the church. It is a form of discipleship that enables meeting the needs of our church families, as well as those of the visitors and other friends who enter our doors every week. These needs include the desire to hear reminders of God’s love; reaching out in Mission; providing faith nurture for our children; and belonging to a living community of faith.
A Christian steward is one who serves God out of love and gratitude for the gifts God has granted us. Each of us are stewards of these gifts, and we celebrate with thanksgiving these many blessings. Yet, we are humbly mindful that he is the potter and we are the clay. What we do with these gifts ultimately defines the character of our lives and the depth of our spiritual understanding. It is not how much we have but what we do with what we have that is important.
How is God Calling You to Serve? God has freely given us gifts in the form of time, talent and treasure. We are responsible for using them wisely and for his purpose. What kind of stewards are we? Imagine Jesus standing before you and saying, “Go forth and serve.”
We need you! There is work that only you can do, and gifts that only you can share and give.
What are they? We need people to make individual commitments:
- Monetary gifts to forward the missions and programs of the church
- Help serve people in our church, community and world in need
- Pray for our church
- Teach and lead in Christian Education
- Sing or play an instrument
- Make visitors and guests feel welcome
In short, we need each of us to be a good steward of our time, talents, and gift to share God’s grace with one another.
We ask that you pray and make a pledge for the current program year using the Estimate of Giving Card to determine the level of giving that is right for you and your family.
You may also contact our church finance administrator, Stu Dodge, at 734-453-6464 ext. 116 for questions about your pledge or charge card form.
