Whole Life Stewardship – Chances are, you have heard this expression at some point in your relationship with FPCA, but what does that really mean? What is Whole Life Stewardship? It is a commitment made by you, to your church family, of ways you can serve Jesus Christ through time, talent and treasure. Are you a gifted musician? Share your talents with our music ministry. Are you a gifted singer? Lend your voice to one of our many choirs. Do you enjoy gardening? Pitch in at the church during spring or fall clean up. Have free time during the week? Donate that time to volunteering as an office assistant. Whatever your gift, it is your responsibility to share it with your church family, and to give glory to God, and help us continue to do God’s work. As it is with financial gifts, it is also your responsibility to share your treasure with your church family. Your gift to FPCA will help us continue our mission to Live God’s Love in the way of Jesus Christ. We do this through worship, study, service and relationships for the common good of our community and the world. Give cheerfully, as God instructed us to do in 2 Corinthians 9:6-8:
“The point is this: the one who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and the one who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. Each of you must give as you have made up your mind, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. ”
