Stewardship - Caring for God's Gifts... - more info (PDF)
Christians believe that life is a God-given gift. Being a good steward of that gift is our sacred response for every gift left in our care. Our time, talents and money, love and vocation are meant to serve others and build community. In this, we learn that a living is made by what we earn, but a life is made by what we give.
How Much Do I Give?
Giving forms relationship - with God, one another and with community. We give out of our own need to do so. Scripture teaches that we should set aside 10% of our income to provide for the needs of others. Gifts ought to be offered based on "first fruits"... what's right, not what's left over. Guidance about how to support your church as a first priority can begin with the 1/1000 guideline - give a dollar a week for each $1000/year in income. Gifts will vary depending on individual circumstances. Give according to your ability: a small gift can make a huge difference.
