Celebrating Stewardship: Looking up to God
And God is able to provide you with every blessing in abundance, so that by always having enough of everything, you may share abundantly in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8

Giving is automatic with commitment. We are committed to Christ and the Church. All we have is from God through Christ. To not respond to His grace would be a denial. ─ Brad Urquhart
