What we believe about giving and stewardship
 

offering plate 3

In the Episcopal Church, we believe that stewardship is our grateful response to God for all that God has provided for us.  In the Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25: 14-30), we learn that a steward is a thankful and resourceful caretaker of God’s abundance.  As Christians, we are stewards of God’s world and the Church in many ways.

At St. Martin's, stewardship involves giving of ourselves through the time, talent and treasure that we share: by enhancing the spiritual journey of fellow parishioners (volunteering to teach a Sunday School class or sing in the choir) as well as supporting those in need outside our parish (packaging food for Stop Hunger Now or mentoring a student). 

We also give our money as a response to God's grace in our lives. Making an annual pledge supports the operating budget of the parish.  It is a spiritual discipline to put “first things first” with a financial commitment of our treasure, however small or large that may be.  The story of the Widow’s Mite (Mark 12: 41-44) is another good reminder of how Jesus viewed the use of money.

Your annual pledge covers everything from personnel expenses for our clergy and staff to maintenance costs for our buildings and grounds along with resources required for quality worship and programming.  Financial support is vital to St. Martin's mission to love, to grow and to serve as well as to maintain our presence as a welcoming parish where others can come to know Christ.
