Stewardship is responding to God’s radical generosity with gratitude. This means leading grateful and generous lives; valuing God’s gifts and seeking to use them to do God’s will and to God’s glory.
As Christians we are called to be "image-bearers" of God, to worship our radically generous Creator, and to be wise stewards of the Creation God has entrusted to us. This includes stewarship of our lives; our possessions; our relationships; our abilities; our faith; and the environment.
At St. Peter's we work toward living grateful and generous lives through stewardship of time, abilities,financial resources, and faith by:
- Intentional commitment of time for the mission of Jesus Christ;
- Discernment of gifts and abilities and how we might use them for that mission;
- Intentional commitment of financial and other resources for that mission
- Deepening our understanding of the Christian faith and growing in Christian discipleship;
The fruits of Christian Stewardship become evident when we affirm our gratitude to God by our generosity of spirit.
