Stewardship

       An Invitation to Estimate of Giving

 

This year’s stewardship theme, “I am the way...” takes shape from this passage in John 14:6, when Jesus said to Thomas:

“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to God except through me.”

We share a particular way of being Christian and being church. We are not alone. The early Christian movement was known internally as well as to its persecutors at the Way (Acts 9).

The life of faith is a way of being human, a way of interpreting, a way of practicing, and a way of living.

  • The wisdom tradition of the faith often spoke of the Way. God watches over the way of the righteous. (Psalm 1:6)
  • The prophetic tradition of the faith also refers to faith as a Way. Prepare the way of our God, make straight in the desert a highway for our God (Isaiah 40)
  • Jesus refers to himself and his commitment to a cruciform Way of life as, “I am the way ....” (John 14:6)
  • Paul advising the early church in Corinth being torn asunder with division counsels that in the way of love, he would show them “a more excellent way.” (I Corinthians 12:31)

You are invited to reflect on this shared way and how we individually and collectively are stewards of this way.

Stewarding your faith community by pledging your support allows the church to plan the way forward. And, this year, be reminded that giving is a way to participate in a church community striving to live in such a way that the reign of God becomes real in each of us and is extended to others through us. 

For indeed, the journey to generosity is the way of Jesus. 

Please complete an Estimate of Giving form whether you plan on using eGiving as your donation method or continuing to utilize your previous method and will make payments directly to the church.

We also have a Time and Talent form where you can indicate how you'd like to volunteer.

When we commit time, talent, money, and other resources to church or world, we also symbolize something that goes beyond the actual immediate action. We represent the commitment of our whole lives to the values and practices of God.

To complete an Estimate of Giving for 2020, and/or your Time and Talent Form, you can click on the appropriate Printed Form button below to mail to the church to the attention of the Financial Secretary, or you may provide an internet/online form by clicking on the appropriate Online Form button. Once you provide the information requested on the Online Form and click the Submit button, your Estimate of Giving will be forwarded securely and confidentially to our church Financial Secretary.
