[The Stewardship Board is to] engage the members in making a Spirit-led commitment of their time, talents, and resources to the support of the Congregation and its organizations.
Quoted from Immanuel’s Constitution and Bylaws.
The Stewardship Board meets on the second Tuesday of each month to plan and coordinate various opportunities for the people of Immanuel to use their time, talents and treasures in service to Christ and His Church. The Stewardship team carefully assesses needs in our congregation, community, and world, seeking to match needs with the spiritual gifts and resources of God’s people in this place. From collecting canned goods for food pantries to presenting seminars on money management and more, the Stewardship Board encourages folks to discover the grace and blessing found in serving others and the truth found in Scripture, “We love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19)
