"Christian stewardship is the free and joyous activity of the child of God and God's family, the Church, in managing all of life and life's resources for God's purposes." - LCMS Definition of Stewardship
As stewards, we belong to the Lord and we receive everything from His hand. Our stewardship of God's gifts includes, but is certainly not limited to, the choices we make with the financial resources with which He blesses us. St. Paul gives us an example of the stewardship of the early Christians as he instructed the Corinthians in collecting a gift for the relief of needy Christians in Jerusalem: "On the first day of every week, each one of you should set aside a sum of money in keep with his income ..." (1 Cor. 16:2).
A helpful way to arrange our financial offerings to the Lord is to utilize automatic giving. Faith uses "Simply Giving" from Vanco. Click here to visit our Simply Giving page.
