Stewardship

We are blessed to have such active and giving members! We devote our time and our God given talents to ministries that help people here and around the world. We give of ourselves with such joy and passion, whether it be preparing and serving food for Chosen 300, teaching Sunday School, knitting prayer shawls, or rebuilding homes with the Appalachian Service Project team! Thanks be to God for giving us the opportunity to be good stewards of all he has given us.

What is Stewardship?

Stewardship is the act of taking care of all that God has given to us. These blessings include: our health, our family, our possessions, our community, our congregation, our faith, our finances and God's creation. In response to God's great generosity to us, we share our time, talents, and treasures for the sake of God's mission to love and care for the world.

Where Does It Go?

We designate our offering to four different areas:

  • Current - This is the church's operating budget that funds our staffing and ministry programs and regular property needs. It's like the church's checking account.
  • Benevolence - The money we give to the wider church - the Southeast Pennsylvania Synod, the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, and, through them, numerous other local and global ministries.
  • Social Ministry - Provides support for local ministry for people in need, homeless and hunger ministries.
  • Mortgage - Helps to underwrite our larger capital property needs.
