Stewardship Moment 2019 – Mission and Service

Stewardship is an important part of Christian life all year long, and here at St. Paul’s we make it our special focus in the month of October. It gives us a chance to look at how we have practiced stewardship in the past year, and how we plan to make it a part of our Christian practice in the coming year. At its core stewardship it is the recognition that all that we have comes from God, and it is our responsibility to use our resources faithfully through the management and sharing of our time, talent and treasure.

This year we are moving more deeply into the theme of Loving Our Neighbour. We’ll see how stewardship enables us to love our neighbour in practical ways and we’ll put some of those things into practice. Our worship services and the contents of the 2019 Stewardship Booklet will both provide opportunities for conversation and for you to reflect on how stewardship will be a part of our Christian practice in the coming year. To learn more about the Stewardship campaign, please visit the Support St. Paul’s webpage.

Each week throughout the month of October, Stewardship Lead Dorothy Wilkins, will be providing a Stewardship Moment. On October 20th, Mission and Service Committee Chair Helen Dowse addressed the congregation. Her message can be read in the blog post below or heard through the October 20th worship service recording at posted on the Worship page. Enjoy.

Stewardship Moment

Part of stewardship is helping those outside St Paul’s and our community.

Our support of the Mission and Service Fund is our response to God’s generosity in our own lives.

The M and S Fund in turn supports programs like The Journey Neighbourhood Centre in Brampton.

The centre looks like every other store in the strip mall where it is located, but once you enter, you encounter a different world – one filled with art, laughing children, enthusiastic volunteers, and interns from the Social Work program at Ryerson University.

Your generous support of the Mission and Service Fund allows programs such as this to continue. Thank you for your support.
