What is expected?
Our catechism teaches that; “The duty of all Christians is to follow Christ; to come together week by week for corporate worship; and to work, pray, and give for the spread of the kingdom of God.” Book of Common Prayer, page 856.
Church Family and Stewardship
People sometimes get worried, especially when they hear the word stewardship.
Stewardship begins with gratitude for all the gifts God as given us. Then having considered those gifts, we discern what resources we can give to help people in need.
Is to seek justice and respond to human need in any way possible and consistent with the teachings of Jesus. Thus our mission is “Learning and Doing the Work of Jesus.”
Is to gather with others who seek to do this work, not so much to “go” to church as to “be” the church. We seek to pray often in order to make our lives a prayer to the God of our life.
Is to give of our time, talent and treasure to make provision for the needs of God’s people and God’s church. We expect that we will give in proportion to what God has given us in all areas of our life.
