"Now Thank We All Our God"

 

Members of the church are encouraged to actively participate in the financial life and missions through pledges and annual giving along with the sharing of one's time and talents.  Stewardship is an important way in which we can direct the church to accomplish God's mission.

 

God has made each of us a steward and has given us abilities and talents that are unique to us.  We use these abilities and talents to serve God.  Everything that we have comes to us as a gift from God.  In the giving of our time, talent and treasure, we express back to God the love that He shows us in Jesus Christ.

 

The Bible tells us that God charges His people to be good stewards who respond to His love with gratitude and generosity.  Jesus reminds us that where our treasure is, there will our hearts be also.

 

As Christians, we are given the great opportunity to joyfully put our hearts and treasures towards the work of God's kingdom.  As stewards of St. Paul, each one of us shares the responsibility for fulfilling our vision of a church that loves and nourishes each member, reaches out to those who seek to know God, and shares our blessings with our community.
 

"You should each give, then, as you have decided, not with regret or out out of a sense of duty; for God loves the one who gives gladly."

 

Our Mission Statement:

It shall be the function of this committee to evoke and promote the expression of Christian faith in daily living; to teach the Christian use of money; to diffuse knowledge of the congregation's local, national and worldwide ministries; and to lead all its members to higher level of proportionate giving for the Lord's work.  This committee shall also be responsible for Every Member Response and other congregational efforts which lead to informed and grateful giving.
