What is Stewardship?


Stewardship is … Everything I do after I say, “I believe.”

God calls us to share in God’s mission of caring for the world, using all the gifts God has given us.  We are stewards, caretakers of God’s gifts.  Everything we have was a gift from God, and God asks us to use it all for God’s purposes.  Generosity flows naturally out of our gratitude for the gift of love, family, and life itself.

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. For everything in heaven and on earth is yours. Yours, O Lord, is the kingdom, and you are exalted as head over all. 1 Chronicles 19:11

Stewardship is Every Day in The Life of St. Thomas.

A faithful steward takes care of what God has given to us. And St. Thomas has been given much. It is wrapped in loving worship, strengthened through our families and friends, supported through community and united as the Body of Christ. From our roots as a mission church in 1952, our Ministries are reaching out.

We cannot do God's mission in the world without the pledges of time, talent and treasure that ensures that we keep doing the Programs, Projects and Outreach that is our tradition. At St. Thomas, we don’t choose to be stewards, stewardship is part of our identity.

Stewardship isn’t …

  • Fundraising.
  • Paying the light bills or maintaining a building.
  • Paying a decent staff.
  • Meeting the budget.
  • Keeping the church alive.
  • Paying our fair share of the dues.
  • Passing on a legacy to our children.

Stewardship is …

  • Sharing in God’s mission with a glad, generous and grateful heart.
  • Transforming lives in our community.
  • Prayerfully responding to God’s call.
  • A deeply spiritual matter.
  • Something that blesses the giver more than the receiver.

Stewardship is discipleship; it is a complete reorientation of our lives toward God, who calls us through Jesus Christ.  Stewardship is …

Everything I do after I say, “I believe.”
