Stewardship & Giving

And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. -- 2 Corinthians 9:8 

Gathering together is the heart of our Christian community. Our people, place, and programs depend on the generosity of everyone who chooses to belong in this community. 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, giving of ourselves in three ways.  Each November, we ask our members and friends to make a financial pledge, to indiciate their interests, and this year, to consider making a legacy gift to sustain our future

This fall, we are in the third of our three-year stewardship series, with the goal of significantly increasing our annual financial support. You can access our Stewardship Booklets and two presentaions below, and respond either in person on November 24th or online:
