Stewardship is about being grateful, responsible stewards of the gifts we receive from God. The tradition of giving back to God and to the church comes from the Biblical practice of “tithing,” which means to give back a tenth of our earnings to God (Numbers 18:26). The Episcopal Church views stewardship as more than simply contributing money to the church; it’s also about contributing time and talents, and volunteering for ministry and mission. It’s about reaching out to build relationships from a perspective of abundance instead of scarcity.
Here at St. Paul’s our faith community strives to reach these goals of responsible stewardship daily with financial gifts as well as the donation of time and talent. Please visit our Faith in Action section to see how you can make a difference. If you are interested in more information on how you can support the work of St. Paul’s contact Joanne Grubman at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the church office at 561-276-4541.
Below are videos from our Consecration Sunday program this year, encouraging each of us to simply ask “what is God calling me to give.”
