Continuing the Mission of Christ

Thank you to all parishioners who have completed and submitted your Commitment Card to the church.  For those parishioners who have not yet had the opportunity to submit their card, a letter will be mailed to you with a personalized Commitment Card.  It is important that all parishioners complete a Commitment Card as we will be mailing out a Summary Report of the program and need all commitments accounted for in this report.  If you have any questions, please contact the church office.  We also encourage all parishioners to consider our electronic giving method and to setup your reoccurring offertory gifts electronically. 

 

Stewardship Prayer

Oh, Lord, giver of life and source of our freedom, we are reminded by the Psalmist

that Yours is "the earth and its fullness; the world and those who dwell in it."

We know that it is from your hand that we have received all we have and are and will be.

Gracious and loving God, we understand that you call us to be the stewards of

your abundance, the caretakers of all you have entrusted to us.

Help us always to use your gifts wisely and teach us to share them generously.

May our faithful stewardship bear witness to the one love of Christ in our lives.

We pray with grateful hearts, in Jesus' name. Amen.

PARISH STEWARDSHIP PLEDGE

                    My church is composed of people like me.

                            I help make it what it is:

                            It will be friendly, if I am.

                            It will be holy, if I am.

                           Its pews will be filled if I help fill them.

                            It will do great work, if I work.

                            It will be prayerful, if I pray.

                            It will make generous gifts to many causes, if I am a generous giver.

                            It will bring others into its worship, if I invite them and bring them.

                           It will be a church of loyalty and love,

                                    of fearlessness and faith, of compassion, charity and mercy,

                                    if I who make it what it is, am filled with these same things.

                        Therefore, with the help of God,

                        I now dedicate myself to the task of being all things that I want my church to be.
