what is stewardship?

Stewardship is more than the giving of money in order to meet a church’s annual budget. Stewardship is a theological statement of belief. It's a way of life based on a belief that we are all the beloved children of God. Therefore, we joyfully give of our time, talent, and treasure in to participate in God’s Kingdom being lived here and now. 


Pledging models the values of our faith and demonstrates our commitment to deepening our relationship with God by actively supporting God’s ministry through the church. It provides an opportunity to discipline ourselves and educate our children. As a spiritual exercise, pledging allows us to reflect on the gifts God has given so that we all may use those gifts for the purpose of ministry, mission, faith formation, Christian fellowship, and worship of the church.

The practice of Christian stewardship occurs every day. It isn’t limited to just a specific time of year; it's an everyday activity of gratitude for all God has done for us! All are invited to discern how God calls you to serve—through the giving of your time, talents and treasures—with gratitude in 2022. 


Below are a few helpful documents that offer insight into what stewardship looks like here at CHPC. Thank you for prayerfully considering how you can help us minister with gratitude as we seek to faithfully share Christ’s love.
