"Where your treasure is, your heart will be also." Matthew 6:21
Often stewardship is mistaken as synonymous with fundraising in the church. Church stewardship is so much more than that. It encompasses the holistic care for the church as an organization, the people who are part of the church community, and the missions that reach beyond the walls of the physical buildings.
Traditionally our church runs a stewardship program in the fall culminating in a stewardship Sunday sometime in November. Pledges are made to the Annual Operating Fund which funds the Annual Budget.
Contributions may be made weekly during the service or by mailing a check OR using your bank's bill pay:
