Stewardship & Giving
What return shall I make to the Lord for all God's gifts to me? -- Psalm 116

God has given us great riches of faith and hope to share with each other and the world, and a splendid heritage to pass on to our children. We respond by being good stewards of these gifts. And that means we give of ourselves. The practice of Christian stewardship leads us to employ our "time, talent and treasure" in God's service, so that we can care for and build up the church for the sake of the world God loves.
