Stewardship


"Ascribe to the Lord the honor due his Name; bring offerings and come into his courts." Psalm 96:8 (BCP Psalter, Coverdale Bible, 1662)


 

About Stewardship

 

IMG Collection plateWe believe that all that we are and all that we have is a gift from God.

 

We believe God entrusts us to be joyful and generous in our giving.

 

We dedicate ourselves as followers of Jesus Christ and support of the biblical teaching to give our time, talent, and treasure to this worshiping community for God’s work.

 

We are grateful for this worshiping community and the neighborhood.

 

We invite and encourage the congregation to join us on this journey of stewardship, trusting in God’s abundant love and grace. 

 

At Highpoint Episcopal Community Church ("HECC"), our stewardship theology is quite simple: we are passionate about hearts and souls, NOT wallets.  Our clergy limit sermons regarding financial stewardship to only two per year.



Definition of Stewardship


Christian stewardship is grateful and responsible use of God's gifts in the light of God's purpose as revealed in Jesus Christ. Christian stewards, empowered by the Holy Spirit, commit themselves to conscious, purposeful decisions.


This definition comes from the Standing Rules of the Ecumenical Stewardship Center ("ESC"). The Episcopal Church is a founding member of this group and remains active in its continuing work. You can find out more about ESC at its website www.stewardshipresources.org.
