What is Stewardship?
Christian stewardship is grateful and responsible use of God's gifts in the light of God's purpose as revealed in Jesus Christ. Using the gifts God has given us, to do the work God is calling us to do.
Stewardship at Saint Andrew's is a year-round, ongoing activity. Stewardship is lived out as members earnestly devote their time, talent, and treasure in telling God's story.
The annual Stewardship Financial Campaign is conducted every fall. While there are many personal benefits to those who pledge, it foremost helps the vestry accurately plan Saint Andrew's budget for the upcoming year.
While Saint Andrew's congregation is exremely generous, it is important to know Saint Andrew's has operated with a deficit for years. The deficit has been made up with Saint Andrew's limited savings. The vestry prayerfully considers every dollar spent and has reduced or eliminated some expenditures. It is both a solemn and joyful reminder that every pledge is a commitment, and every dollar contributed is important as we continue our Christian journey together.
“Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above…” James 1:17, NRSV
Our theme this year, Every Perfect Gift, highlights all the ways in which we have been blessed by God and how that inspires us to give back to our neighbors, our church, and the world.
