Stewardship

“Jesus said to Simon Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs.”
He said to him a second time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, Lord; you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Tend my sheep.”
A third time he asked him, “Simon son of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep.””

— From John 21:15-17 —

Doesn’t Jesus really ask the same question of us? And doesn’t He ask us to tend His sheep just as He did Peter? This is what stewardship is about… Loving the Lord and tending to His sheep! By using the gifts we receive from God to further Jesus’ work, we show our love for God and help grow His kingdom.
The stewardship team’s main responsibility is to help the congregation fully understand what Jesus expects of us through the sharing of our time, talent, and financial means. Through an annual appeal and other events throughout the year, we help teach our members and friends how serving the Lord in everything that we do is really needed to fully live out our Christian lives. It isn’t just about money… it’s about using every gift God has given each of us in such a way that glorifies Him and serves our neighbors every day. Sure, we may get perturbed at times hearing about our giving over and over again, and we may even feel hurt at times, but that must not deter our conviction to serve the Lord with everything that we are!

If you’d like to be a part of helping grow God’s kingdom here in this place, we invite you come join our team and help our congregation live the ELCA’s motto… ”God’s work. Our hands.” Both Jesus and our team look forward to your response… Are you ready to play a significant part on God’s team?
