As stewards, we have a relationship first of all to God, the creator, then to other human beings, then to nonhuman creatures, and towards Earth, our common home. Stewardship is God's will for us on this planet. It impacts our life on a daily basis and makes our lives fuller and more vibrant.
The St. Timothy's Stewardship committee's mission is to explore all aspects of biblical stewardship from financial gifts to caretaking of the earth to discovering our spiritual gifts and talents.
God has given us life, security, faith, hope and resources to flourish as ministers of his word. How should we respond?
Stewardship of Creation
"The Earth is the Lord's and all that is in it,"
- Psalms 24:1 (NRSV)
This ministry focuses on environmental education and action. Check out the stewardship bulletin board and newsletter for creative ways to be environmentally sensitive both at church and in our homes.
Gifts and Talents
"Now there are different varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit: and there are varieties of services, but the same Lord; and there are varieties of activities, but the same God who activates them in everyone."
- 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 (NRSV)
Gifts and Talents is an enriching ministry that allows each of us to fully explore our place in the world. Great or small, no matter, God has a purpose for our gifts and talents in the service of others, bringing us each individual fulfillment and purpose.

On This Rock Endowment
The income from endowments enables many churches to reach far beyond what they would be able to do through the yearly pledges of their members and the annual budget. Yes, the assets can be spent as soon as they are given, but a well-organized and thought through plan for receiving such assets and for the use of the income provides the opportunity for the mission of the church to continue through many years to come. Here at St. Timothy's, we are working to expand our mission opportunities through the establishment of the "On This Rock Endowment Fund. For more information on how you can support your Church mission through planned giving, please contact Sean Goff at email@example.com.
St. Timothy's now offers the ability to allow the Church to automatically debit your bank account for the payment of pledges. Simply print and complete the online enrollment form and return it to Cary Haney, Parish Bookkeeper. The amount that you designate will be debited from your account on the 1st or 15th of each month - it's your choice!
