CGS will Proclaim, Welcome, & Serve in Benevolence
“It will be like someone going on a journey, who called their servants and entrusted their wealth to them.” Matthew 25.14
In the Parable of the Talents, from Matthew 25, Jesus teaches us that active, engaged stewardship of God's gifts is a hallmark of faithful service. Our primary goal for 2019 is to follow the results of the upcoming listening study for the area of benevolence, social action, and outreach. This will result in the development of a stewardship plan for our time, talent, and treasure as a congregation.This goal connects to our mission in important ways. God has called us to proclaim, welcome, and serve; this goal is a necessary step toward living into that mission. Stepping out in faith to share the gifts we've received, we are sharing God's abundance.
