Some Thoughts on Giving…
As followers of Christ, we are called to serve those in need, one another and our neighbors in the community by the generous giving of our time, talents and treasure. The legacy of stewardship at St. Michael is one steeped in a history of generosity and good works toward others. With gratitude for our blessings, we faithfully answer this calling by sharing God’s abundant gifts.
There are many examples of this generous sharing within St. Michael such as the annual support of the “Rise Against Hunger” worldwide project, and the ongoing support of local charitable organizations including the Kennett Area Community Service organization (KACS), the Chester Migrant Ministries & the American Red Cross Blood Drives, to name a few.
In addition to sharing monetary gifts, the members of our congregation are inspired, as grateful stewards, to generously give their time and talents in support of the mission and ministries of St. Michael Lutheran Church.
This description from the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America website well describes how St. Michael thinks about stewardship:
“As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. How do we respond to God’s call to serve and love our neighbors? We faithfully steward the gifts God has so abundantly given to us. Although some think of stewardship as only a financial response to God’s love, stewardship encompasses so much more than money. It is about how we use all that God has entrusted to our care — our time, our talents and our treasures — to love God and our neighbors, both inside and outside of the church walls and our homes.”
