Infinite Lord and eternal God rouse your church in this place
Restore your people’s sense of Mission
And revive your work in holiness and strength.
By your Spirit teach us to give our energy,
Our time, our money, our service and our prayer
Thank your Kingdom may be advanced here and in the entire world
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
Stewardship is discovering the practical value and application of our faith. Each of us are called as individuals and communities into God’s holy mission. Christian stewardship encompasses all aspects of our lives – it is about our personal, family and work life. Being stewards and encouraging Christian stewardship is a ministry and formation process that requires support, education, and spiritual practice over time
Each of us can participate in stewardship by giving of the unique gifts that God has endowed us with. These gifts may be our time, our talents and skills, sometime our physical resources or our money.
Freely you have received, freely give.Matthew 10:8
