Stewardship is about sharing and taking care of all of creation – ourselves, our neighbors, and our earth. Stewardship means “belonging to God” – all that we are and all that we have comes from God. We are grateful to God for it all, and responsible to God for how we use it.
We are also called by God to give of ourselves and our time. We have each been blessed with spiritual gifts and abilities, so that we can strengthen the Body of Christ and to help build up God’s kingdom here on earth.
Online giving is a reliable, safe way to move your stewardship commitment into action. You may choose to give weekly, monthly or when you are able, and it provides a consistent way to meet your pledge commitment.

Tithing Is More Than Giving
The word "tithe" literally means tenth or 10%. Tithing, or giving ten percent of your income, isn't merely giving something to God. It's giving back what was his to begin with. All that we have, or hope to have, comes from him. The Bible says that tithing is a reminder that God is the supplier of everything. It teaches us to always put God first in our lives.
