The Stewardship Team works to expand our thinking on Stewardship — as a Presbytery and as individual churches. Many of our churches have experienced their workshops — and the team continues to expand its training and resource awareness. As this Team continues its work, in communication with the Manager of Stewardship and Finance, watch for helpful tools and information for use in your church. Together, we can continue to be better stewards of the many gifts God has given.
