Call to StewardshipGenerosity, Fall 2023

Each Fall our congregation takes time to focus on our Call to Stewardship. We do this because we believe God has clearly called us to be “Good Stewards” of all God has given us. And the fact is, of course, that everything we have is given to us by God – time, health, the environment, relationships, talents, property, and, yes, the Gospel.

The theme of this year’s emphasis on stewardship, is “Generosity,” for God is generous in abundance — creating us, loving us, forgiving us through Jesus Christ our Lord. God has also made each of us a steward and has “gifted” each of us with abilities and talents that are unique.  Our emphasis will conclude with a Consecration Sunday on October 22.

The Response Card for 2023 (below) provides the way to communicate that commitment and to designate areas for your support.
