Stewardship

“The promotion of the practice of stewardship is important for the mission of the Church and for the spiritual well-being of each individual Christian.  Everyone benefits from the sacrificial gift one makes of his time, talent and treasure”.                     His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI

Requests:

  • Hosting says:

    Give Regularly. The habit of regular, pledged giving serves as a constant reminder of the generosity of God and helps to shape our souls. Pledged giving also allows the Church to plan responsibly for our ministries.

  • Julia says:

    Give Proportionately. We give in proportion to the income we receive, not a specific amount. Proportionate giving challenges both the rich and the poor. The 10 percent tithe is the standard for Christian stewards, but the fact is, a specific percentage does not adequately express our stewardship before God.

    My son and I were recently in a dangerous and unhealthy living situation and in order to protect myself and my son from violence I had to make an extremely difficult decision to leave without having a place to go. For the last week, we have stayed in a motel and i have run out of money, food, etc. I have been looking for any kind of assistance, and sadly, have been unsuccessful. My son’s father passed away seven years ago and I am on social security. I don’t know if this is the appropriate place to ask for help or not, but I am becoming desperate. I wont have any money until the first of next month and i am terrified that we are going to be sleeping on the street. We have no where to go and I don’t know what to do. If there is anyone that could help us, please contact me at your earliest convenience. Once again, I apologize if this isn’t the proper venue for this request. Thank you

    Hello,

    This Health Collaboration is conducting a community baby shower in aspiration to improve the birth outcomes of African-American women of Contra Costa County by providing critical health and parenting information; also, linking them to prenatal services and other forms of support. In our county, African-American babies die at twice the rate of other babies before they reach their first birthday and are more likely to suffer from asthma and other illnesses. African-American women are three times as likely to die from labor and delivery complications.

    We invite all African-American expectant mothers and their partners, who reside in Contra Costa County, to attend the community baby shower on Saturday, August 1, 2015 from 9:00 am to 3 pm at Stewart Memorial Christian Methodist Church located at 580 Front Street, Pittsburg, CA 94565. We are hoping to nurture, support and inform these couples in an attempt to improve their pregnancy outcomes. Please invite your church members to attend our event.

    Your donation would be useful in helping to accomplish this goal. All donations will be used for the purpose of raffles, prizes, and give-a-ways such as breast pumps, books, safety kits, cloth baby holders, diapers, and other baby items, as well as, food, gift certificates and drinks. Your tax-deductible contributions should be made out to A More Excellent Way Health Improvement Organization (Tax ID# 14-2011697). If you are interested in contributing to this event, please contact Monique Sims.
