Stewardship 2022

Beloved Children of God,

It’s always tempting for the pastor to view stewardship as the same as fundraising. It’s tempting to list the utilities and the staff and the programs, “these things cost money, let’s keep it going!” However, the church exists to be the hands and feet of God in this world—to feed the hungry, give the thirsty something to drink, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for those who are sick, visit the imprisoned (Matthew 25:31ff). So stewardship is not fundraising; stewardship is the call to faithful discipleship. It is giving to the church, not because the church needs the money; but because we need to offer ourselves to God.

These last two years have been different than any other in our experience, but faith is forged most deeply in the midst of difficulty. Let us show the world that our hearts are not afraid and that—even when we are worried about ourselves—we will not forget to love our neighbor. Let me encourage you to give past your prior capacity and to offer yourself to God at an even deeper level. Our world is in need of our hearts and dollars more than ever. Through our gifts, let us show our bright hope for tomorrow.

May you find God’s peace and blessings as each day unfolds,
Pastor Kathryn Johnston
