Stewardship Education

Everyone has a different story about why they are called to be a Christian steward... click on the links below to read a few from our parishioners.

"That does not sound like you."

"It's just what we do for family."

"It started with a valentine."

"God is the main Head Coach."

"Experience that awesome feeling that comes with being part of something bigger than ourselve.s"

"It is not an obligation to us. It is a privilege."

"How shall we make a return to the Lord for all the good He has done for us?"

"God prepared this house for us."

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait single moment before starting to change the world.”

"A Volleyball Match, a Pocket Knife and a T-shirt."
