Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. - 2 Corinthians 9:7
A steward is a person who has been entrusted with another’s resources and seeks to manage those resources according to the owner’s vision and values. The gospel calls us to recognize that everything we have is a gift from God—and that those gifts are to be used for his glory and to further the mission of his kingdom. Peter says, “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's grace” (1 Pet 4:10). Thus, we at Grace Lutheran recognize that, in addition to acting as responsible stewards of our time and skills, we must also be stewards of our possessions and finances. Please prayerfully conder how you may faithfully contribute to supporting the mission of your church home.
