“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the LORD Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”
Malachi 3:10 (NIV translation)

Stewardship is an important part of our life at St. David’s. The commitment and generosity of our members through pledging gives us the opportunity to support our staff, maintain our facilities, and offer many impactful programs and services. Stewardship is a spiritual journey and we ask each parishioner to take the time to prayerfully consider making an annual financial pledge. For many of us who pledge, we do so because our live have been and continue to be changed through God’s work at St. David’s. For others, it’s a realization that is not OUR money, but rather a gift from God, entrusted to us to share and make a difference in our world.
Stewardship is more than contributing money to St. David’s; it’s also about contributing time and talents through volunteering. We invite each parishioners to use their time and talents in the numerous ministries.
Annual Stewardship Campaign Committee: The Stewardship Committee invites each parishioner to prepare a financial commitment to St. David’s. Pledge cards have been provided to many parishioners and are available to anyone who desires to support St. David’s. You may place your pledge in a stewardship envelop and place your envelope in the collection plate or bring your pledge card to the church office. Your annual financial commitment will help our St. David’s community to transform lives through Christ.
Trust in God and practice trustworthiness*
We are called by God himself to be the channels of his love, his grace and his truth. As stewards, we are the conduits of an endless, eternal supply. He has chosen to work through human instruments to accomplish his purposes.
Think about it:
With what has God trusted you?
How is he using you as his channel to bless others?
How well are you stewarding this sacred trust?
Pray about it:
God, I pray that you will use me to communicate your Word to those who need to hear it. May I be faithful to do my part no matter what it is.
(*From the NIV Stewardship Study Bible, p. 675)
