Volunteer Like a Saint

  • What is Stewardship

    “As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace:” (1 Peter 4:10) Our given gifts are intended to be used for caring for others.  God asks us to be generous with our gifts of time, talent and treasure.  While it’s not always easy to give when so many other responsibilities get in our way, God wants us to commit to sincerely sharing with those who need our gifts. By sharing your time and talent with the school, you will have the opportunity to positively affect the lives of students who live in our community.  Simultaneously, your life will be touched by our students who are learning the truth of the Gospel and what it means to be a child of God.  You will witness firsthand the dedication and commitment of the many teachers and staff who are helping to educate today’s youth.  Your rewards will be many.  “And do not neglect doing good and sharing; for with such sacrifices God is pleased.”  (Hebrews 13:16)
