Stewardship - "Our Response to God's Grace"
The Year-Long Stewardship Program for Christ the King, Our Response to God’s Grace, has been developed to provide both inspiration and information to the congregation from multiple approaches. Christ The King's Parish Office can provide you with some spiritual tools to help you determine why you should give, with pertinent information as to what the church does with your contribution and to help you determine how much to give, and how important it is to make a commitment to God and your church by turning in a pledge, either via a Pledge Card (available in the Parish Office) placed in the Sunday offering, or by using the form at left. If you would prefer to donate electronically, please contact Jo Ann or Carmen in the Parish Office.
Let us pray:
Gracious God, giver of all we have and hold as stewards; grant the people of this church a deep and abiding awareness that all things come from you – our health, our incomes, our jobs, our talents and our generous impulse. When we are tempted to think of money as a private matter, remind us that you have asked for part of what we are given, to be returned to you as a symbol of our awareness that you give all we have. And further, help us to help each other in this grace of giving, for you are the lover of our souls and call us to nothing less than transformation in Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
In regards to committing to your pledge, be aware that Christ the King does not track what you give against your pledge. For your tax purposes we need to record what you give, but you will never receive a letter stating that you are behind in your pledge. That is always between you and God. Your pledge is only used for budget planning purposes. We know that circumstances change, and even the most heart-felt commitment may not be able to be met, though we trust that you will always try.
