The Giving of Our Time, our Talent, and our Treasure

Stewardship is the proper managing and sharing of our time, talent, and treasure for building the Kingdom of God. Everything we have is a gift – our life, our property, our health, our talents, our money. All are gifts from God. We are called to share these gifts with others – not in a single action, not in a hundred actions, but as a way of life. We are called to receive God’s gifts gratefully, to develop them responsibly, and to return them to the Lord through sharing with others. Stewardship is a direct response to God’s generosity and an expression of discipleship.

 

Time and Talent

We grow in discipleship through service. Our volunteer community consist of over 200 members seriving in one capacity or another. We are grateful all volunteers who so generously support our many ministries. For those of you who are not yet engaged, please consider serving in a ministry that best suits your available time and talent. Just select the icon/link below:

 

 

Treasure

Over the past year your financial contributions to the Parish have allowed us to meet our operating and maintenance expenses and to invest in upgrades to our facilities and programs. Our preferred means of your contribution is through PRE-AUTHORIZED Debit because it provides us with secure stream of revenue that we can count on even through the summer months. Please consider joining our 90 families that are pre-authorized givers. Whichever means works best for you, we are most grateful for your ongoing support.
 
 
 

Ways to Give Financial Support

 

Sunday Offering Envelopes and Formally Registering in our Parish

 
If you are new to the parish, please pick up a box of our Sunday Offering Envelopes found on the small table at the entrance of the church. Please fill out the initial envelope (the registration envelope) with your name, address and telephone number and drop it into the collection basket. The registration envelope allows the parish to know how many families live in the parish and allows parish staff to contact families when necessary. It also allows the church to provide a yearly tax receipt. Registration means that we want to gather each Sunday with our brothers and sisters in Christ to worship God and that we want and intend to support the ministries in our parish. Registration is a concrete sign that the family is involved in the life and work of the parish
