2015 Stewardship Renewal

We are God's building! This theme for our Stewardship Renewal is based on the First Letter to the Corinthians. We are the Church built upon the foundation of Jesus Christ. This Church stands as a shelter for all and a beacon of hope for the world. Each one of us, as a disciple of Jesus, is a temple of the Holy Spirit who builds up God's Kingdom with our unique gifts. Our Annual Stewardship
Renewal calls forth those gifts of time, talent and treasure.
