What comes to your mind when you think of stewardship? Maybe fundraising or a capital campaign? For some of us, we may honestly not really know what it means. As Christian Stewards we gratefully receive all of God’s gifts, cherish and tend to them in a responsible and accountable manner, share them in justice and love with others, and return them with increase to the Lord. Here is an opportunity to share your unique gifts of time and talent…a day of Stewardship in Action! Join your brothers and sisters in labor of love, as we primp and repair small items around our St. George’s home. The Building and Grounds Team will host the day of Stewardship in Action on Saturday, July 28. We will gather @ 8:30, beginning with light breakfast and fellowship, then work shoulder-to-shoulder on a few tasks on our “honey do” list, just until noon. Do you have a talent to share? Want to learn a new skill? Even if just for an hour, all are welcome. For more information, contact your Building & Grounds chair-members Charlotte, Harry or JB.
Generous and loving God,
You call us to be disciples of your Son Jesus
and good stewards of your many gifts.
Open our minds and hearts to a greater awareness
and deeper appreciation of your countless blessings.
Transform us through the power of your Spirit
to nurture a stewardship way of life
marked by faith-filled prayer,
service to our neighbor, and generous sharing.
Teach us to be faithful servants of your gifts.
With Your help, may we return ten-fold
the gifts entrusted to us.
We pray through Christ our Lord. Amen.
