At Gale we understand that giving will not be the same for everyone: not equal gifts, but equal sacrifice. Like the widow we read about in Mark, she did not give at the same level as her wealthy neighbours. But she gave what she could.
If we look at Peter’s reference, however, we would understand Stewardship as also being the personal gifts we receive – consider the ability to teach, the ability to inspire volunteers, the ability to cook and bake, the ability to run audio-visual equipment, the ability to care for children, the ability to provide pastoral care or the ability to … the list of gifts church members bring to Gale are as numerous as the membership itself.
Financial support remains important, to maintain our facility for both worship and service, and to pay the staff who keep us operating each week.
Consider these options for your support:
Through your online bank portal, you can send donations to email@example.com
In the memo/notes section, please include as much information as possible:
* Indicate what fund you would like your money to be allocated to
