Celebrating Stewardship: Looking up to God

The earth is the Lord’s and all that is in it.
Psalm 24:1

Speaking for myself, I pledge and volunteer because I have been incredibly blessed in my life and I feel a commitment to God to give back blessings to others that I have received. I believe that God is Love and we must reflect this love to others. I feel a compassion for those in need. ─ John Freeman
