Stewardship:

Giving is more than a responsibility—it is a privilege; more than an act of obedience—it is evidence of our faith.—William Arthur Ward

Church:

Thank you all so much for your generous offerings and gifts over the summer months.  Your offerings of your time, of your God-given talents and of your money, help support all that we do at St. Andrew’s.  God’s Plan has always been to finance his work through the tithes and offerings of His people.  St. Andrew’s could do nothing without the faithful offerings of its members.  When we are giving, we are being the faithful people that God calls us to be.

In the months to come, let us all work together to fulfill and exceed our 2017 financial faith target.

Let’s continue to be Christian stewards that seek the heart of God faithfully, joyfully and gratefully by managing all the Gifts God has given.
