CELEBRATING THE ABUNDANCE OF GOD

Our response to God’s love takes many forms in our lives.

“Almighty God, whose loving hand has given us all that we possess: Grant us grace that we may honor you with our substance, and, remembering the account which we must one day give, may be faithful stewards of your bounty, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.” BCP 827 #38

St. James bases its stewardship upon the biblical philosophy of the givers need to give for his or her own spiritual development, rather than on the need of the church to receive.

Instead of treating people like members of a social club who pay dues, we treat everyone as followers of Jesus Christ who give unselfishly as an act of discipleship.

A special day in November, Consecration Sunday, encourages people to give in response to the question, “What percentage of my income is God calling me to give?” Attendees at worship complete an Estimate of Giving Card at the end of the service, a process that is confidential and the choice to complete a card completely voluntary. Everyone then adjourns to the parish hall for a festive catered luncheon.
