Christian Stewardship

Christian Stewardship is a way of life. Christian Stewardship is a response to three fundamental questions that a Christian must ask and answer as an individual. These three questions are: 1) What has been given to me? What gifts has God given to me?  2) What is expected of me? How does God want me to use my gifts and talents? 3) How do I respond? How can I grow and nurture others because of my gifts? The key word in Christian Stewardship is “SHARING” – to use responsibly the gifts God has given to me. The tri-fold manifestation of Christian Stewardship is found in the use of our TIME — TALENT — TREASURE.

Stewardship Prayer

Almighty Father, everything we are and everything we have comes from You.  You are the Giver of Life and the Source of our freedom. It is from Your hand that we have received all that we have and are and will be. Gracious and loving Father, You call us to be the stewards of your abundance, the caretakers of all your gifts to us. Help us always to use your gifts wisely.  Teach us to share them generously.  May our faithful stewardship bear witness to the love of Christ in our lives. We pray with grateful hearts, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
