WHERE ARE OUR GIFTS DIRECTED?
As a congregation, we take seriously our stewardship of the resources we are given for the ministry to which God has called us. We make every effort to use both financial and human gifts in wise and effective ways. Just as we ask each member to make a commitment to the ministry of this congregation, we also commit ourselves as a congregation to generously support our collective ministry.
