A Message from the Stewardship Committee
Earth Day, on April 22nd each year, is a day for us to celebrate the wonders of God’s creation and to recommit ourselves to being good stewards of the many blessings we enjoy because of God’s love for us.  For 2016, the PCUSA’s Earth Day theme is “Care for God’s Creatures.”  In Genesis 1:26, God grants us “dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.”  We thank God for all of God’s creatures and recognize our duty to better care for them and to be effective stewards of all of God’s creation.  Read more about Care for God’s Creatures at http://www.pcusa.org/resource/earth-day-sunday-2016-care-gods-creatures
Stewardship involves using all of our resources efficiently for the glory of God, including time, talents, and money.  An upcoming opportunity to be a good steward of our church resources is to help with Spring Clean-Up of the church grounds on Saturday, April 23rd from 8 am to 12 noon.
As we recognize Earth Day 2016, consider how you can become a better steward of the blessings and resources God has given you.  “How great are Your works, O God! You made them all with wisdom, the earth is full of Your creatures” (Psalms 104:24).
