What is Stewardship?
- Stewardship is a faithful response to God’s gifts and God’s mission by generously giving our time and energy, gifts and skills, witness and compassion as well as our financial resources.
- It is a commitment to share our common life in Christ.
- It means that we embody the gospel in acts of service, and to work for justice, peace, and the dignity of all persons.
- Stewardship is not just the challenge of servicing our own existence, programs, and practices.
