Our Stewardship Program
"I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit."
The Stewardship Committee would like to present you with the following information:
The operating expenses of our Church are estimated to be $670,000 for the year 2017; of that amount $215,000 is budgeted to come from Stewardship contributions.
Please prayerfully consider how you can help Saint George reach these goals.
Thank you and may God bless you for all of the time, talent and treasure you give for His glory!
Stewardship allows our parish to continue to support the wide array of programs and outreaches that we sponsor. Your financial support impacts the way we are able to feed the poor, visit the sick, comfort those in need of healing and educate the faithful. Likewise, the more you give, the greater things we are able to do for the glory of God

“Managing” Our Talent, Time, & Treasure
As creatures made in the image and likeness of Christ we are called to be good stewards of the life and creation which the Saint George Church has made us a part of. The Greek word from which we get our word steward literally means "house manager." Stewardship is a task or responsibility bestowed by a master upon a servant.
In God’s wisdom, we were all created to be different in our abilities and talents so that we might help each other. God designed it that way to bring us together as a community. When we pray and worship as a community, many talents are at work; the Priest; the congregation singing; the chanter; the altar boys, and the ushers are giving their talents.
Talents can be as simple as being a reader to organizing a fund-raiser. Maybe you can sing well or write well, or you can bake or cook well. Whatever the talent, we are called by God to share them and each of us has many talents to share in the service of Saint George Church's parish and the community at large.
Think of all the different talents you have and how you could use them to benefit others and the church. Look over the many ways you could help out and make a commitment. We need everyone’s talents so the burden isn’t left to a small group.
The world of today is a fast-paced, time consuming place. Our jobs, children, personal commitments, leisurely pursuits, and sleeping all take a toll on the 24 hours we have in a day. We never seem to have enough time. The irony is time was given to us by God, and us humans in our wisdom have figured out endless ways to use it or waste it. Could there be any greater use of our time than that spent serving God in fulfilling His mission, serving the parish, and our fellow brothers and sisters?
Here at Saint George Church we have many great ministries, committees, worship services, classes and fellowship gatherings where you can spend your time spiritually, helping others, in fellowship, and serving the needs of the parish and the community. We have people volunteering their time for many of these great works, but we need help from everyone so the burden doesn’t fall on a few. The needs of the Church are growing as the number of parishioners grows, and we need many more stewards to come forward and offer their stewardship of time.
It would be wonderful if we could rely on our time and talents only to run the parish of Saint George Church, but we also need the treasure of each of our parishioners in order to have a church. We utilize our time and talents, which God has given us to earn our treasure. It is therefore fitting that we give a fair portion of our treasure back as a thanksgiving to God. In the New Testament, Saint Paul writes “He who sows sparingly shall reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully shall reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.” (2 Corinthians v. 9:6,7)
