Stewardship is not just something we do once a year - - it’s a lifestyle God calls us to lead as His disciples in this world. God’s Word tells us we are to give of our first fruits, not of what’s left over. God is an equal opportunity enabler, allowing us all to serve by giving each of us unique gifts to share. We cannot all give of our time, talents and tithes at the same level, but we all can make valuable contributions to do the will and the work of God. We are the church. We are the face, the voice, the helping hand of God to those around us - - we help make Him, our Lord and Savior, real to each other and to many in need in this community and the world.
