“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”
This simple statement at the beginning of the Bible establishes once and for all the immutable relationship between ourselves and the world around us.
All that we are and all that we have comes from God and will one day return to God.
We are stewards of God’s bounty, caretakers. For a brief period we are given time, energy and resources. What we do with these gifts ultimately defines the character of our life and the depth of our spiritual understanding.
Gift Planning is one expression of the wise use of personal resources God has entrusted to us. Understanding gift planning and making it available at Christ & St. Luke’s is both a ministry to the donor, who can thoughtfully transfer resources to the next generation, and to Christ & St. Luke’s, by helping the church gather the resources necessary for its mission and ministry.
