Stewardship Message

“Your light must shine before all so that they may see goodness in your acts.” (Matthew 5:16) Giving of our time, talent and treasure mainly involves a change of attitude about giving. It’s important to think in terms of giving in gratitude to God, of considering how blessed we are, of using our gifts and talents for the good of others.
