"A New Season, A Spirit of Optimism" Stewardship 2023


Eternal God, we pray that by your grace we will make stewardship a way of life.

You are the source of all we have and all that we are.

Help us to place you, our loving Creator, first in our lives by becoming more prayerful, more
focused on loving and caring for our families and our neighbors in need, and by becoming less preoccupied with material things.

Help us to hear your call to be good stewards, caretakers, and managers of all your gifts by
sharing them for your purposes. Help us to make your priorities our priorities and to put our faith
into action.

Help us to generously share the talents, treasures, and time with which we have been blessed.

Help us Lord to serve our church, our community, and our world with the gifts you have given us.

Teach us how to give with a joyful spirit, with love, and with hope.
