Sharing Our Gifts

 
SHARING WHAT WE HAVE, WHAT CHRISTIANS CALL "STEWARDSHIP"
 
All that we have comes from God, and we should care for and share what we've been given. Our response to God's generosity is called Stewardship - Time, Talent, and Treasure, Temple (the body), & Testimony. The process for teaching about stewardship is called Development. Giving your time in support of a good cause; Using one of your talents to teach or to cook or serve is Stewardship; making a financial gift is Stewardship. Our Development efforts will concentrate on three areas: Developing an attitude of generosity, Planning present and future giving, and Events that connect us to one another and to important causes. Food Bank
 
The world needs YOUR specific abilities, Lutherans call that Vocation. Your unshared abilities are like a beautiful song that is never sung, or a brilliant book never read. God needs you to be a messenger of hope, grace, and love.

St. Mark's takes all gifts very seriously. Our Investment Committee has created a brochure explaining our stewardship of gifts and bequests.
 
2 Corinthians 9:6-7 The point is this: whoever sows sparingly will also  reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.  Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or  under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
