Stewardship at St. Timothy's
“The fundamental reason for all acts of stewardship—gratitude for the abundance we have been given.”
- Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori
The ministry of stewardship is rooted in the understanding that the entirety of our life is a gift from God. The most precious gift is God’s self-gift, the person of Jesus Christ who came so that we may know life abundant.
Stewardship is a response of discipleship, an ordering of life that puts all we have under Christ’s rule—our time, our money, our relationships. Jesus is not interested in just ten percent. Jesus wants one hundred percent of our lives. The essence of stewardship formation asks: How do we respond?
A Stewardship Statement from our Vestry
We believe that all that we have--- our lives, our talents, our resources, our health---comes from God. As we live and work and worship and play, we resolve to be mindful of our commitment as Christians to use these gifts accordingly, knowing that we live from abundance and in grace. We will give joyfully and generously. We will actively support our parish family in their ongoing relationship with God.
Final Affairs Planning Possessions--and how we use them--have a way of defining who we are. Estates and end of life plans reflect our values. Preparing a will and expressing your wishes for your final affairs are acts of love for our families and friends, ways of easing the pain of loss that follows death. It is also our final legacy.
