Christian Stewardship - Time and Talents
There are varieties of gifts, but the same Spirit.  There are varieties of service, but the same Lord.  There are many forms of work, but all of them, in all men, are the work of the same God.  In each of us the Spirit is manifested in one particular way, for some useful purpose.’
1 Corinthians 12:4-7

The Stewardship Committee invites you to reflect on your own gifts and talents in the service of God and his Church.  Whatever your ability or interest, we would like to hear from you.
