The stewardship team provides leadership in cultivating faithful and effective practices of stewardship by all members of the congregation. The committee guides the congregation in the proper care of all that God has blessed and entrusted them with on this earth. The committee reminds the congregation as a whole to be a community of servants who follow Jesus’ example by living lives of service to each other and to the community.
They do this by:
Preparing “Stewardship Thoughts “for the Sunday Bulletins and the Fisherman’s Net.
Organizing congregation recognition Sunday to thank and recognize the congregation for applying their time and talents to the ministries of the church.
Conducting regular “Time and Talent” surveys of the congregation maintaining and updating a Congregational “Time and Talent” data base so that everyone can use their gifts and talents in service to God and the community.
Establish and implement an annual stewardship campaign which gives the members of St. Mark an invitation.to make an estimate of their giving for the coming year. The Pony Express has been successful for the last two years.
Organizing Stewardship Workshops that guides the congregation to be good stewards of the earth and of God’s gifts, including talents, financial health and personal well-being.
Organizing Ministry Fair’s to summarizes the total ministries of your church that are available to the church and community. Opportunities for service are presented for each ministry.
