The Stewardship Committee
What it Stewardship?
The Bible clearly teaches that stewardship is obedience to God that is only possible for those walking with God, empowered by the Holy Spirit. That is why the Stewardship Committee focuses on the task of building people in Christian formation on a foundation of God's grace rather than guilt and compulsion. This formational task includes both inspiration and discipline as the people of God are formed into people who reflect God's generous character. This is a grace filled and grace fueled task that fosters the growth of God's people.
The Stewardship Committee emphasizes an individual's need to give thanks for all of God's gifts. This is an on-going program (time, talents and treasure) with an emphasis on an annual program. Whereas, the Finance Committee emphasizes the needs of the church, focusing primarily on treasure (more on the Finance Committee next month).
The practice of stewardship is a transformational journey that involves our head, our heart and our hands.
What God gave for us!
What we give back!
Matthew 25:40 ……..I will tell you the truth,
whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine,
you did for me.
