Faith & Practice

Stewardship & Giving

Overview

Stewardship is an integral ingredient in our discipleship, alongside our prayer lives and religious devotions. Giving is a matter of spiritual health. In matters of finance our commitment to the Gospel becomes tested. We already understand that when we give we receive so much more in return. The gift of life comes from God, all that we have been given is not for us to possess. Stewardship is a means by which we give back to God what we have been given.

Your gift will help others benefit from the resources of the church in the community.

Thank you.
