Financial giving is an important element of our spiritual relationship with God. Stewardship is about helping God’s people grow in their relationship with Jesus through the use of the time, talents and finances that God has entrusted to them. It is a way of life.
It is about how God is calling us to respond to God's presence in our lives.
