Stewards, Not Owners
We use the term Stewardship to reflect the ancient understanding that all that we have is a gift from God – that we are not owners but stewards of our time, talent and possessions. Caring for and using wisely our time, our abilities and our financial resources is a spiritual practice.
The mission (desired outcomes) of the Stewardship Team is:
There is a climate of gratitude where people of the congregation desire to contribute their time, talent and treasure as they are called by God. There are sufficient funds to finance the ministries to which the congregation is called.
The committee does not force, coerce or pressure people to contribute. It also does not engage in fundraising practices, such as gambling, which the United Church has traditionally spoken against.
Generosity is part of a healthy spiritual life. This committee’s job is to educate and encourage the stewardship of all that God has given us.
