"All things come of Thee, O Lord; and of Thine own have we given Thee."
I Chronicles 24:14
Stewardship is the wise and just use of God's creation. It involves the Church's finances, of course, but it is much more than that. Stewardship is serving God by giving of ourselves in the form of our treasure, time and talent. We make an annual financial pledge to the Church budget. We dedicate our time to put our talents to use in various ministries of the church. We make plans for gifts to the church that reach beyond our individual lifetimes. Stewardship also includes being good to our environment. In learning about Stewardship, we seek to understand how best to use our own resources and those of this world in pursuit of God's kingdom.
The Stewardship Committee is an umbrella committe that works with the Finance Committee, the Every Member Canvass Committee, the Heritage Fund Committee, the Gift Planning Committee, and the Environmental Stewardship Committee (a.k.a The "Green Team"). Throughout the year the Stewardship Committee strives to educate the congregation on the full meaning of stewardship: how parishioners can not only give their "treasures", but also how they can invest their "time and talent" both here at St. Luke's and in the wider community in general.
