Stewardship & Gifts
Generosity is our response to God’s call to be compassionate disciples. Together, the people of the United Church live out Jesus’ vision and values by caring for each other and the world. Each and every day, we join God’s life-changing mission to make ourselves, our community and our world more peaceful, just and loving for everyone. “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” (John 10:10b)
In the ancient world, stewards were people who managed a household on behalf of its owner. Today when we as Christians call ourselves stewards, we make the bold claim that God is the true owner of the household of all that exists: creation, money, time, talent…everything! The world isn’t ours; it’s God’s. And amazingly, God entrusts it to us. Good stewardship means doing our utmost to care faithfully for God’s abundant goodness.
