Stewardship is explained in the Bible, Psalm 24:1-2: “The earth is the LORD’s, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.” We know that we can’t give everything to God. We have to be able to provide for our families, etc. But it does remind us that all we have is because of God.
Stewardship is that rare opportunity to manage what God has given us in His name. Typically we say that Stewardship is “Time, Talents, and Treasures” and that is usually the easiest way for us to remember to be “Good Stewards” of Gods gifts.
Please consider how your “Time, Talent or Treasures” may help these important ministries strengthen and grow.
A church is only as strong as its people, and we have a strong, remarkable congregation where “Reaching Out and Reaching In by Reaching Up” is truly our mission. Continue that mission to keep our church strong and to do so in His name.2021-10-24 09:18:10
As stewards, we believe that God gives us all that we need for this
life and that we manage, rather than own, our earthly blessings. Please pray about God’s gifts of financial resources, time, and talents to you and decide what you will return to the Lord for His work. Stewardship Weekend will be Saturday and Sunday, November 13 and 14.
The Ladies Aid/LWML will be collecting mites beginning this week through October.
Please pick up a mite box to be deposited in the large collection box in the narthex. Your gifts will help the LWML spread the Gospel throughout the world. Thank you!

These were necessary for church services in adherence to CDC safety guidelines. Your generosity will enable us to use technology to further spread the Gospel. Thank you for your response to the Pastors’ appeal for this special project. Even with this list of faithful donors, further assistance is still needed to defray the total cost of the project. ~ The Church Council
