When we grow as stewards,
we share the news of the Gospel
in all the settings of work and leisure.

When we grow as stewards,
we share our wealth and possessions
with those persons and agencies
in ministry to people in need.

When we grow as stewards,
we give willingly of our time and abilities
in our private lives and in the public order,
using the gifts God has given us
to assure that all creation is fulfilled.

When we grow as stewards,
we assure that the world will remain a gift
for future generations.

Stewardship is the lifestyle
of Christian discipleship.

This is a way of giving that begins with the question, "how has God blessed me?" rather than "what does the church need?" Then the decision is made to return a proportion or percentage to God in obedience and gratitude.
