Stewardship

A Collect for Stewardship

Gracious God, giver of all we have and hold as stewards; grant the people of this church a deep and abiding awareness that all things come from you - our health, our incomes, our jobs, our talents and our generous impulse.  Send your Holy Spirit to help us as we swim against the rising tides of materialism, envy, individualism and greed in our culture. When we are tempted to think of money as a private matter, remind us that you have asked for part of what we are given, to be returned to you as a symbol of our awareness that you give all we have. And further, help us to help each other in this grace of giving, for you are the lover of our souls and call us to nothing less than transformation in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen

A group of adult and youth members met, wrote and put together a collection of chapters to help guide parishoners through a healthy and meaningful approach to stewardship.  We hope you'll take some time to look through and read our Stewardship Manual.

 

Praise God from whom all blessings flow.
Praise him all creatures here below.
Praise him above thee heavenly host.
Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
