What Is Stewardship?
To understand the concept of Christian Stewardship we must realize that as baptized and chrismated Orthodox Christians, we have a daily obligation to the ministry of the Church. Stewardship calls each of us, the individual and every family member to manage his or her time, talents, and treasure to the glory of God. All that we say, feel, and do is a part of the Stewardship ministry. When we worship together, when we visit the sick, participate and support the Philoptochos philanthropy, when we assist the various programs of our youth and senior citizens, or work at the Food Festival – this is all Stewardship.
We suggest a stewardship giving guideline of 5% of annual household income. Although this amount is far less than the 10% tithe, and much less than Jesus’ command, pledging a gift of 5% by all Resurrection stewards will enable our church’s operating expenses to be fully funded and allow us to continue to spread the word of Jesus Christ in the East Bay and Tri-Valley areas.
The logic is simple and scriptural: those who have more, are able to give more.
