Stewardship, in its simplest form, is the practice of generosity. It is essential to the daily expression of our faith. As members of the ELCA, we believe that we are freed in Christ to serve and love our neighbor. How do we respond to God’s call to serve and love our neighbors? We faithfully give the gifts God has so abundantly given to us. Although some think of stewardship as only a financial response to God’s love, stewardship encompasses so much more than money. It is about how we use all that God has entrusted to our care — our time, our talents, and our treasures — to love God and our neighbors, both inside and outside the church walls and our homes.
Christ the Servant’s Endowment Fund is a means by which special gifts of money can be received and distributed to extend the programs and ministries of Christ the Servant. It enhances the mission of CTS apart from the general operations of the congregation. It also allows the congregation to respond to important needs and ministry opportunities.
Memorial Bricks are now available to memorialize those special people or events in your life. The bricks can be engraved with symbols, letters, and numbers to celebrate life or to capture that special wedding date, graduation, baptism, years at CTS, and on and on. Take a stroll through the CTS Memorial Garden, stop by the stage and read the memorials on the bricks. Memories to cherish for a lifetime...and beyond!
The CTS Treasurer provides oversight and direction on the financial matters of the church and the Finance Administrative Assistant helps maintain the church finances and produces financial reports. In addition, lay members may become counters, who provide support and documentation of the offerings given to support the ministries of the church and volunteers to help audit the books.
