2015 Stewardship

Have you received your 2015 Stewardship form in the mail yet? We urge you to read the information carefully, and to make a bold and faith-filled commitment to your church for 2015! Please set a level of giving that is a reflection of your love for God and of your appreciation for the blessings and benefits you derive from your Church. Please help us to reduce our dependence on our Food Fest for our day-to-day operating expenses! There is no minimum, but true stewardship means proportional giving—giving in proportion to our resources and income.
