“Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” –Ephesians 3:20-21
For First Presbyterians, stewardship is not about membership dues or paying the bills. It is more about worship: we give in gratitude and glory to God, because all that we are and all that we have are gifts from God.
In our worship and service, we offer not only our money, but also our time and talents. Giving is more of a privilege than an obligation because as Paul reminds us in Ephesians, when we offer our time, talents, and treasure to God, by the grace of God, we get to be partners with God and be a part of God’s work in the world In doing so, we also get to see examples of God’s amazing grace, as God uses our modest gifts to “accomplish abundantly far more than we can ask or imagine!”
Our 2019 theme is “Devoted to Generosity,” drawing from the story of Tabitha in Acts 9:36-42.
