Stewardship Ministry

Chairperson, Craig Redder

“The kings secretary and the high priest, counted and tied up in bags the money that was found in the house of the Lord.  Then they would give the money, into the hands of  the workman who had oversight of the house of he Lord, the carpenters and builders, the masons and the stonecutters, as well as to buy timber and quarried stone for  making repairs on the house of the Lord.

2 Kings 12:10-12

stewardship 1Everything that we have is given to us by God; our response to God’s immeasurable grace is through our stewardship of God’s resources - time, talent,  and money.  It is through all three types of stewardship that we honor our Lord and become bonded with our church family.

One of the primary responsibilities of this ministry is to administer the Spiritual Gifts program to help members discover and develop the special gifts God has given them for service through ministry.  A second responsibility is the careful accounting of the the congregation and with external organizations, paying the bills, and processing donations.  Every month this ministry provides a statement of income and expenses and a balance sheet for the Church Council.  Once a year this ministry works with the Church Council and ministry volunteers to prepare the annual budget.  Faithful execution of the duties of this ministry requires that we acknowledge God as our provider.  It is out of gratitude that we share and faithfully administer what He has given us.
