GIVING AT CHURCH OF THE RESURRECTION
 
Stewardship is about recognizing that everything we have is a gift from God, and being grateful, responsible stewards of those gifts.  AS a fundamental part of Christian discipleship, good stewardship is the return of a portion of those financial gifts to the work of Christ’s Church at Church of the Resurrection, so that it continues to be a place where we grow in faith and share God’s love.
 
Your support of Church of the Resurrection enables the mission and ministry of our parish through many and varied programs and offerings which enrich and transform lives and build up the community and the world around us.  These include engaging worship services, children’s and family programs, adult education, pastoral support, spiritual guidance, fellowship and outreach ministries. 
 
You can support the mission and ministry of Church of the Resurrection in a number of ways:
 
Annual Financial Pledge
Although stewardship is not just about money, our attitude toward it and the ways we choose to spend it are powerful indicators of both our recognition of what God has given us, our thankfulness for it and what is important to us.  Our financial giving, therefore, should be an intentional reflection of these things.  A useful measure for assessing our financial giving is as a percentage of income, rather than a dollar amount.  A tithe (10% of income) is the biblical standard of giving.  For most, it is a goal to be reached through incremental increases each year. 
 
Annual pledges support everything we do at Church of the Resurrection, and your pledge commitments give us a financial foundation upon which to develop our programs and our budget.   Every pledge, no matter what its size, is a valuable contribution to our mission and ministry and a powerful statement of our commitment to work together in the building of our community and God’s kingdom.  If you would like to make an annual pledge, please contact the church office.
 
One-time Gifts may be made in support of a special need or in thanksgiving for life’s blessings and/or milestones.
 
Support the Future of Church of the Resurrection
We can ensure that the faith community which has so enriched our own lives will be here for future generations by way of contributions to the Legacy Fund.  
 
Gifts of Time and Talent
Each of us has gifts to share in the way of skills, strengths and talents.  Our stewardship of the resources God has given us is not only about our financial giving, but also the use of our time and talent in the building up of the Kingdom of God.
