Stewardship

Stewardship begins with an understanding that everything we have comes from a lavishly generous God who is active in our lives and in all of creation. In gratitude for God’s gifts, we are invited and, indeed, expected to show such generosity by sharing the blessings bestowed upon us and by caring for the world with which we have been entrusted.

Stewardship is much more than a financial commitment made each Fall. Rather, it is year-round involvement in and engagement with the work of the Church: offering time, talent, and treasure in support of the mission and ministry of the parish community, including maintenance of the physical plant and grounds; supporting each other in the Christian life; and working to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

 

Annual Stewardship Appeal 2018

Treasure
All members and friends of Christ Church are asked to prayerfully consider making a yearly financial commitment in support of the parish. Such giving must always come from a place of gladness and gratefulness of heart. When contemplating a financial commitment, one might ask: What do Christ and Christ Church mean to me? From my means as they are, what amount reflects the importance of my faith and the mission and ministry of Christ Church in my life? And lastly, in addition to making a yearly commitment, have I remembered Christ Church in my will, so that I might have a lasting affect on the life of the parish into the future?

The monetary goal of the Stewardship Appeal for 2018 is $1,400,000 through pledges from 500 households. Pledge cards are available in the Parish Office. An online pledge form is available below. If you have questions about pledging or payments, contact Glenn Metzdorf, Director of Administration.

Time & Talent
In addition to making a yearly financial commitment to Christ Church, members and friends are asked to put their faith into action by offering time and talent to the parish and the wider community it serves. There are many opportunities to minister at and through Christ Church. We encourage you to explore them on this website and, perhaps more importantly, through conversation with clergy and fellow parishioners.
