Stewardship & Community Life Pillar

Our Stewardship Ministries are committed to facilitating volunteer activity. 

Our Community Life Ministries are committed to gathering, caring for, and building the parish community, communicating with the community members, and promoting family life.

 

A Call to Stewardship

1 Peter 4:10-11

As each one has received a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God’s varied grace. Whoever preaches, let it be with the words of God; whoever serves, let it be with the strength that God supplies, so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 

 

Stewardship & Community Life Responsibilities

Through our intentions, planning, formation, and actions, the Stewardship Ministry works to ensure that here at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church we:

  • Nurture a firm stewardship foundation.
  • Provide programs to promote stewardship growth and maturity.
  • Facilitate the connection between individual stewardship commitments and parish-wide opportunities with ease.
  • Ensure "access" to a ministry service is clearly outlined.
  • Facilitate the development of Catholic Christian leadership and mentorship in the Parish.

Through our intentions, planning, formation, and actions, the Community Life Ministries work to ensure that here at St. John the Baptist Catholic Church we:

  • Promote family life and practice community building.
  • Foster the sense of Catholic Christian community in the Parish and Diocese.

What is Stewardship?

As members of St. John's, we can become examples of stewardship.  We are called to use the gifts God has given us to help make St. John's a welcoming and vibrant Parish.  In so many ways, St. John's is already practicing stewardship by support of our outstanding Catholic school and formation activities, our various ministries and our local community. 

What is Stewardship?

  • GRATITUDE: Stewardship is having the wisdom to understand that everything we have is a gift from God of which we are to be the absolute best caretakers.
  • LIFESTYLE: Stewardship is a way of life, honoring God in everything we do with all His gifts.  Living life God-centered rather than self-centered – thinking of Him first before our own wants.
  • LOVE: Stewardship is having the heart to give back out of love a portion of every gift that has been entrusted to us by God.
  • FAITH: Stewardship is a life-long faith journey that brings us ever closer to Jesus Christ; following the path He so perfectly laid out for us through His life example.
  • REWARDING: Stewardship is life altering and its rewards last an eternity.

There are many opportunities to give of your time, talent and treasure.  We urge you to become a generous steward of your gifts here at St. John's.
